I just changed my serial number already to 1998041601

Can you explain what my upstream might have changed that caused this problem

And what problems could a wrong serial number cause ?

I would expect that your upstream has made some changes which cause your
problems (look to the serial number in the SOA of As your TTL
is 2 days some other nameservers have cached your data. From these sites you
can reach your site but everyone who gets first to your site (means his
nameserver first queries your domain) gets an error.

Btw. I think your serialnumber in your SOA has not enough digits. This might
also cause some problems. I would recommend to use something like yyyymmddnn
(year, month, day, number)
