DNS problem: SERVFAIL looking up A for julybaby.com.ar - the domain's nameservers may be malfunctioning

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

Are you sure you have the right nameservers setup?

julybaby.com.ar.        3600    IN      NS      ns10.hosting-ar.com.
julybaby.com.ar.        3600    IN      NS      ns11.hosting-ar.com.

These nameservers give a REFUSED response when your domain is queried.

Ask your web host which nameservers you are meant to be using for your domain.

I think they only have those two servers:
nslookup -q=ns hosting-ar.com
hosting-ar.com nameserver = ns10.hosting-ar.com
hosting-ar.com nameserver = ns11.hosting-ar.com

julybaby.com answers and coughs up website like a holding page - insecure though.

The delegation in the parent zone shows two dns servers - see the check, ~~10 hours old - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=julybaby.com.ar

Or manual ( is one ip address of a.dns.ar).

D:\temp>nslookup -type=NS julybaby.com.ar.

julybaby.com.ar nameserver = ns10.hosting-ar.com
julybaby.com.ar nameserver = ns11.hosting-ar.com

But ns10.hosting-ar.com answers with a refused.
