Dynamic Host Entry Not Propagating/Resolving

Over the weekend I create a dynamic host name in the domain I have hosted at Zone Edit. I have used this functionality periodically over the years and it has always worked. After several days the host will not resolve and I cannot connect. I can see the host in my panel under Dyn Records. It has the correct ip address. I see the updater working, in this case ddclient on a Raspberry Pi.

Any thoughts as to what might be wrong?

hollomon.us

Several hours ago I removed the host and recreated it. I saw ddclient populate the IP address and can see the host and ip in the panel. Will not resolve after 2.5 hours or son.

zoneedit has the record:

dig @ns12.zoneedit.com a bear.hollomon.us

; <<>> DiG 9.10.6 <<>> @dns1.zoneedit.com a bear.hollomon.us

bear.hollomon.us. 900 IN A 67.198.108.92

but the domain is delegated to:

Name Server: ns2.dreamhost.com
Name Server: ns1.dreamhost.com
Name Server: ns3.dreamhost.com

and not to
ns12.zoneedit.com
ns7.zoneedit.com

as is listed in the zoneedit zone file...

you would need to make the delegated NS update at the registrar, enom.

regards.

Hmm. Must be something else I don't understand. When I look at the DNS server settings on my dreamhost control panel the name servers are set to the correct DNS servers at Zone Edit.

dig ns hollomon.us yields:

Didn't change anything at dreamhost.
