Current config

corporate site - off network reseller plan
|
|__ ns1 (ns1/2 set up on this providers server)
|__ ns2
|
| Clustered DNS
|
|__ ns3
| |______
|__ ns4 |____ cPanel servers for clients
|_____|


For the zone file on the reseller plan I added

ns3 IN A IP of ns on cluster
ns4 IN A IP of ns cluster

I also created ( I know this is incorrect but I tried it just out of frustration )

domain IN NS ns3
domain IN NS ns4

The issue I have is that at the registrar level I cannot point .COM .NET domains with ns3/4 as I get "does not exist" errors

I can however point .ORG extensions to ns3/4 !

INTODNS
LeafDNS

Both show no configuration errors for .ORG extentions when pointed to ns3/4 and resolve to test accounts

This issue has been tested with more than 1 registrar, where .ORG is the only extension that will work.

So obviously I am doing something wrong, and further can anyone explain the cause of why certain extensions fail while others work?

I thank you in advanced for your assistance.

Sorry to bump,

but the issue is solved.

Appears to have been a bug in initial setup where the two zone files of the NS was corrupted.


For anyone else

I fixed by

cd /var/named/ domain.tld.db and fixed the zone file.

After that edit dns record in cpanel and save -- pushes to your cluster, no changes needed if you did everything via SSH.



I still have no clue why .orgs would resolve. But I swear it to be the case, tried multiple domains and registrars.

Cheers
