How to use DWI?

In  BHF, when it comes to custom domain, I or Chuck or any other expert mentioning a dig log URL mentioned most of the times as DWI.

What on earth is DWI?

DWI is expanded as DigWebInterface which is an online DNS Lookup tool which can be found at http://www.digwebinterface.com

How to use DWI? 


1. Go to http://www.digwebinterface.com

In the Hostnames or IP addresses text box, enter your full custom domain URL and naked domain URL as shown below and choose "Authoritative" under Nameservers list. (However not in all the cases, "Authoritative" works)

After doing this, click on Dig.
When the dig is complete, you should expect the following,

(i.e) 4 A records and 1 CName record.
@        1799    IN    A    216.239.36.21
@        1799    IN    A    216.239.32.21
@        1799    IN    A    216.239.34.21
@        1799    IN    A    216.239.38.21 
www    1800    IN    CNAME    ghs.google.com.

When you see an extra A record or a different CName record than this, or a different A record than these 4, please remove them and the above 4.

This should probably fix the issue.

P.S: The blog URL I have used belongs to a Blogger user who reported in the forum for an issue.

Facebook OG object debugger

Basically, while sharing a link for the first time, the object debugger stores the meta information in its databases so when you share again, instead of debugging the URL, it takes from its own database. So a shared URL even upon changing the description/image/title, does not get affected sooner.
So, to overcome this and see quicker results of custom description/ changing image/ changing blog or post title, facebook has a facility called the Open Graph Object Debugger.
