I have using the custom domain feature of tumblr. I am writing my own blog, own content. No rebloging. Suddenly, it stopped working today and giving me a Not Found error.

the nslookup of my blog shows,

userccc:~$ nslookup mysite.com

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   mysite.com

userccc:~$ nslookup mysite.tumblr.com

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   mysite.tumblr.com

Any idea what should I do now?

Does Tumblr use eNom for custom domains? I saw something about Blogger users with domains fro eNom having problems, could this be related. (I'm not familiar with Tumblr, so don't know the details.) – MaryC.fromNZ Mar 3 '13 at 14:07
@MaryC.fromNZ I bought my custom domain from another company. My site came back, but it is again getting off time to time. – Haseeb Mahmud Mar 3 '13 at 16:42
Are you using a DNS such as Cloudflare on your domain? – user35263 May 23 '13 at 0:00

Try to put point CNAME record to domains.tumblr.com for www and change your custom domain with adding www as the record. eg: www.domain.com
