Name servers pointing to strange IP address

Hello

I have my NS from my domain name provider pointed to fiona and buck

But I am very alarmed, As I have been having some other issues of late. I did a NS lookup on my domain

techbusinessnews. com au

Its returning these odd results

^C[fdchat-a2]$ nslookup techbusinessnews.com.au
Server: 75.98.161.224
Address: 75.98.161.224#53

Is this right? It cant be yeah? Or is this correct and these IPs belong to C/F

Sorry, I am not a tech or engineer. I am just a tech journalist. do these IPs belong to Cloudflare? I thought a NS lookup should return the results for finia and buck

I am very confused.

You did a lookup for A/AAAA records?

Your NS records seem fine.

Makes no sense

That isn’t a NS record lookup.

That’s looking up the A and AAAA records for your website.

Okay so I run from a windows CMD prompt

nslookup www mysite com

That’s not the right way to do a nslooup in windows ?

nslookup means to query the nameservers - that doesn’t mean it’ll default to looking up NS records specifically. It’ll default to A records.

If you want to query for other record types, just run nslookup and it’ll open an interactive prompt - then you can type set type=NS, press enter and then put in the domain you want to lookup.

➜  ~ nslookup
> set type=NS
> techbusinessnews.com.au
