    Hi folks

    I am trying to access a domain I own. However when I enter the URL it says DNS Server unknown. Can anyone shed some light on it.

    Thanks.

    make sure you have configured name servers correctly for the domain .. that is on the server and at your registrar end.

    if you are using private name servers ( your own name servers ) , they must be registered at your registrar end and should be resolving .

    if you are using registrar name servers ( registrar's DNS service ) , then make sure you have configured A record pointing the website to your server with correct IP.

    Also it takes few hrs for DNS propagation.

    Hello,

    You may also want to use a website such as IntoDNS to see if your domain name is assigned the name servers provided to you by your hosting provider.

    Thank you.
