Today i couldn't get access to map. I made some digging and found i have problems with resolving tile.openstreetmap.org. In browser i get error "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN". Here is "nslookup" for render.openstreetmap.org (he works ok) and a.tile.openstreetmap.org.

=============================

Online nslookup (Russia) https://2whois.ru/?t=nslookup&data=a.tile.openstreetmap.org&dns_type=a

Root DNS server answer:

Server:     b2.org.afilias-nst.org
Address:    2001:500:48::1#53

Non-authoritative answer:
*** Can't find openstreetmap.org.: No answer

Authoritative answers can be found from:
openstreetmap.org   nameserver = daisy.ns.cloudflare.com.
openstreetmap.org   nameserver = rajeev.ns.cloudflare.com.

DNS server answer:

Server:     daisy.ns.cloudflare.com
Address:    2606:4700:50::adf5:3a5a#53

a.tile.openstreetmap.org    canonical name = tile.geo.openstreetmap.org.

So there is no record type A in DNS server.

The tile are served by cache servers, chosen through GeoDNS. The same request from France :

nslookup a.tile.openstreetmap.org 8.8.8.8
Server:         8.8.8.8
Address:        8.8.8.8#53

Non-authoritative answer:
a.tile.openstreetmap.org        canonical name = tile.geo.openstreetmap.org.
tile.geo.openstreetmap.org      canonical name = france-02.tile.openstreetmap.org.
Name:   france-02.tile.openstreetmap.org
Address: 91.224.148.166

So regarding your last remark, it's normal, you have to recurse on the canonical name.

Some information about the CDN setup is on the wiki. But I can't find much details about the DNS servers involved.

If the issue persist, you might want to reach OWG.

I've changed DNS server to 1.1.1.1 (didn't knew about it before) and voilĂ :

And map works well and fast. So there is definitely problem with default google DNS server.
