Hey guys,

I would really appreciate it if someone would take a moment to look over my configuration and let me know if you see any mistakes? For some reason, the nameservers fail to respond entirely.

I am using WHM/cPanel with BIND. I've got one main domain (p1ws.com) that has a number of subdomains- and that is it for now. I'd like to use ns3.p1ws.com and ns4.p1ws.com as the nameservers. The domain was purchased at godaddy, so I'm using their UI to specify the nameservers and add the "glue" records for those nameservers. I'm going to go ahead and include everything I think might be of some assistance.

Main domain DNS zone in WHM: http://i.imgur.com/Gz3iBxn.png

When I click save on the DNS Zone edit page in WHM, I get this error :
zone p1ws.com/IN: has no NS records zone p1ws.com/IN: not loaded due to errors. Bind reloading on ns4001027 using rndc zone:
[p1ws.com] Bind reloading on ns4001027 using rndc: WARNING: key file (/etc/rndc.key) exists, but using default configuration file (/etc/rndc.conf) server reload successful
As of right now- nothing to do with that domain is working, so I know the nameservers are incorrectly setup, but I can't figure out what I've done wrong and how to fix it.

Any insight appreciated.

Thanks for the time guys.

Your NS records in the DNS Zone (last picture) are wrong, they should be:
p1ws.com. 86400 IN NS ns3.p1ws.com.
p1ws.com. 86400 IN NS ns4.p1ws.com.

Alright, I gave it a few hours, did a few dns flushes, and tried on a couple computers/connections- still nothing. I've edited nothing else about my setup but the DNS entry in the picture in my last post.

Any other ideas? :(

Well my next idea would be to check that those IPs actually are configured in your server.
