I've noticed over the last couple of weeks sites like imgur.com were really slow to load or would only partially load an image, and tonight Youtube took half a minute to start rendering! Because nothing critical didn't seem broken I put it down to a local issue at my end. However tonight I thought I'd jump on DX.com and found that the website was only partially loading. I flushed the dns cache on my PC, tried different browsers and confirm the site was displaying correctly via a vodafone connection. Looking at the code I noticed images (and possibly other css stuff) weren't loading from a certain url - "img.dxcdn.com"
So I tried the following:
Ping request could not find host img.dxcdn.com. Please check the name and try again.
Default Server: ns1.xtra.co.nz
*** ns1.xtra.co.nz can't find img.dxcdn.com: Non-existent domain
> server 188.8.131.52
Default Server: google-public-dns-a.google.com
So Google can find it but ns1.xtra can't. Any suggestions short of moving DNS over to Google?
Quick edit: I changed DNS to 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 and reddit now flys. This isn't ideal however.
