Google Wifi returns empty (incorrectly) when I query its DNS server for “thegaspers.org” (A).

DNS definitely has an A record for this domain, though, as can be verified by sending the same query to 8.8.8.8.

I also verified that my ISP’s DNS server (which Google Wifi is using) returns a result for this query.

This appears to be a bug in Google Wifi, then … is there a forum for reporting problems like these?

Thank you!

I believe you just did.  There are a few posters here working with the Google WiFi folks so you can assume this issue has been or will be forwarded for review.

Ah, ok. Thank you.

Is there a way to create a custom DNS entry in the Google Wifi’s DNS server, then? I use this domain for convenient access to internal services on my network, and I’d definitely rather not run my own DNS server to get around this.

Felipe,
 
Each host's DHCP client ID will be come a hostname in the ".lan" domain for local resolution. It can sometimes be hard to figure out exactly what that host name will be, though. The other approach is to rely on multicast DNS (mDNS) where each host publishes its own records that can be queried from any other host that supports mDNS resolution. That would be using the ".local" domain name. A lot of stuff supports that standard, including all Apple gear, virtually all Linux hosts, NAS machines, etc. Support in Windows is a little weak right now, though.

I'm using DDNS service "hostname.dynu.net" for a server I'm running locally.  In reading this thread Google Wifi does not permit the allow for the domain to resolve to the internal IP address.  As my ISP provides me with two IPs, I setup an old router to host my server "hostname.dynu.net" so that it would be on a separate network.  However, when I connect to my Google Wifi - it still is unable to navigate to the server via "hostname.dynu.net".  Any idea why?  I have no issues navigating to the server via my other router, or my phone's LTE connection.
