Do you host your own DNS? Who hosts your DNS? Maybe you are hosting it locally but someone else (ISP, etc) is hosting it for the rest of the world...

If you are unsure who is hosting it and to just look up more information you can use www.dnsstuff.com. It is an excellent website. Put your servers name in the DNS Lookup and it will tell you what it is resolving to and WHERE it is getting this info from.

If this doesn't help you give us a little more information on your DNS setup and maybe even the website address so we can check from one of our ends.

You put "Accepted Answer". Do you need anymore help?

Putting www.paltek.ps or (paltek.ps) in at dnsstuff.com I got the following:

Searching for www.paltek.ps A record at ns3.hosthorizons.com. [63.247.68.48]: Server failure! [took 20 ms].

Looks like they have a problem. You will probably have to contact your hosting company or at least go back online (I am assuming you have an online admin tool) and see if your DNS settings were even saved.
