DNS resolving incorrectly for some countries

jaybong asked:

European visitors are being served an old version of the website – because it appears they are getting a site that is resolving to an ipv6 address.

Other countries resolve to the correct ipv4 IP.

My understanding of DNS routing is fairly limited – where can I fix this?

My answer:


Shopify doesn’t support IPv6 (which may be a big problem for you later) so just remove the old AAAA record. Your DNS records appear to be hosted by “Web-2u Limited”.
