Hello! I have a problem here with DNS, I created my own website and its not being resolved by my default ISP's DNS server, i changed my DNS to 8.8.8.8 (Google Public DNS) and the site works fine...... Is this my ISP's fault?

Probably so. There are a couple of reasons why this can happen. First of all it takes a bit of time for a DNS change to populate through the entire DNS structure - typically ISP's say 48 hours before you can gripe to them with any response. Secondly your site's name or address could have been used previously and gotten blackholed by your ISP or a blackhole list they subscribe to. This can be a bit stickier to unravel. I'd wait the two days, then contact tech support at the ISP with the DNS name and IP address that won't resolve. The bigger the ISP the less chance you will get results without escalating further. Good Luck.

@Orecomm Thanks for the answer, I contacted my ISP after starting the thread and told them to flush their DNS Cache... And then the problem was solved :)
