    It is possible that at a certain point your website host server have a down time... Or some of your backlinks are misspelled and when G try to access the he get a error.

    Be aware that what you receive are messages not updated stats... So you get a message that on a certain point your website get a problem and the message will remain there until you delete it and this have nothing to do with your website status.

    Thank you

    DNS errors are usually caused if Googlebot cannot access your website as it couldn't communicate with your DNS server. If your the server is not down, there's an issue with the DNS routing to your domain.

    A few things to try:

    1. Wait (24 hours) and check back later. If it persists, check with your DNS provider (web host).

    2. Check that your nameservers in your domain manager are correct and pointing to the domain; sometimes these can take up to 24 hours to propogate through.

    3. Use Fetch as Google to see if Googlebot can crawl your website.
