DNS issue

question about DNS. If a website does not resolve correctly and it is actually a public site would I contact the public DNS provider? My DNS server forwards to a SBC Global DNS. I am trying to hit a URL that is in another state. It seems to be resolving fine outside of my building. What can I do to isolate the issue? Thanks

Most likely waiting for a bit it would resolve.  HOWEVER I like useing the public DNS's 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2  If you change your DNS to those, your problem will most likely go away.  A change probably happend that has not yet propogated to your ISP's DNS.  You don't HAVE to use your ISP DNS.  You can use whatever DNS you want.  I like 4.2.2.2 and 4.2.2.1
