TXT entries don't get added / updated


#1

Hi!

I’ve added a few TXT records to my domain but they don’t get populated to DNS servers for whatever reason. What gives?

$ dig nesisuksi.com TXT

As you can see, some of the entries were “inherited” from the old nameservers, but, for example, the DKIM record doesn’t become available, and there’s an extra “ca3-<…>” record that has deprecated since but nameservers still have it.

Name servers are set correctly:

$ dig nesisuksi.com NS

Verifying DNS records for DKIM is a bit tricky.
