    Google Checkout's message in the 'tools' section of google checkout's merchant site:

    We encountered an error trying to access your server at -- the error we got is Error 'DNS_ERROR' connecting to url ''

    Was this problem ocurring today at all or did this happen yesterday and before? Please let us know, I've checked your forms and integration and everything appears to be stable.

    If it was happening yesterday you may want to try again today to see if it happens. I say this because we recently migrated our servers to a more powerful cloud and it had caused data replication problems with some lag to happen.

    We have since fixed the problem but I am wondering if your problem may be due to the migration it may have knocked your form api recognition offline rendering it as a google error. So I ask that you please test it again within your google account and let us know so that we can assist you further if the problem is continuing.
