    One of the best first steps would be to check out the domains with dnsreport.com

    You can also check by DNS lookup using your shell command line:

    #dig @servername.com yourdomain.com

    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    yourdomain.com. 81426 IN A xx.xx.xxx.xx

    #dig @ns1.servername.com yourdomain.com

    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    yourdomain.com. 86400 IN A xx.xx.xxx.xx

    ;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
    yourdomain.com. 86400 IN NS ns1.servername.com
    yourdomain.com. 86400 IN NS ns2.servername.com

    If you were not able to get the results, you can check your DNS settings.

    Another thing, if your domains are using the same shared IP, you may want to add NameVirtualHost IP.IP.IP.IP:80 entry on your httpd.conf. Then, restart httpd service.

    Seems that the named is down in the box. Check if the name server is running in the box and if it is running it is running with all the zones in the server.
