Are you stressing because you've pointed your nameservers to WA but don't know if you did it right? This video will show you how you can see where your DNS is pointing. I see this question a lot in chat, so this could be a great place to point people to.

I just checked, and mine was the same. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what this means. I don't think you should worry though. The main point of checking the DNS is just to see if you've pointed them to the right place. Lots of people change their settings, then want to know how to confirm they've done it right.

Hi,

Thanx for the share! I just checked and had two red crosses. One in Melbourne, Australia and one in San Jose, California. Does this mean that the setting from WA are wrong?

Did you just point the DNS? Sometimes it takes a while for all to come around. But if it's not new, I would just check back in a couple hours or tomorrow. I don't think it's a problem with WA, I think it's just because those areas cannot currently find your site's DNS.

Well, I'm not even there yet, even so, how cool! I'm going to save it for later, when I learn all this stuff and can use it.
