Hi,

I am relatively new to managing cpanel/whm and setting up the DNS etc.....

I have a dedicated server with godaddy, several websites will be hosted here, all of the domains are registered at mtgsy.net.

I have already set up nameservers with a domain, ns3.apazine.com and ns4.apazine.com. I have (too the best of my ability) set up the nameserver information in WHM.

However, the domains are still unreachable. this http://www.intodns.com/apazine.net may shed some light, i can understand alot of the information but not what or where the problem is. In my opinion, it looks like the server is not responding to the nameserver requests properly.

The nameservers each have an ip. Please please please can anyone shed some light, point me in the direction to help. I have searched high and low on the net and not found a tutorial that works. I have emailed godaddy but with no joy.

I simply want to use the nameserver ns3.apazine.com and ns4.apazine.com on my dedicated, assign these NS to all accounts so that all domains i point using these NS will load at the dedicated server.

Many thanks in advance.

I'm having the exact same problem.

http://www.intodns.com/2wheeloutlet.com

I've checked much of everything, from the WHM Zone File settings and /etc/named.conf, /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/nameserverips, /var/cpanel files relating to it and even the IPTables rules making sure port 53 UDP and TCP is open for requests. Yet, the nameservers I've set up won't respond.

Hello :)

Do you continue to experience the same problem after deleting and then recreating the DNS Zone?

Of note, port 953 also needs to be opened for UDP and TCP traffic rather than only port 53. If you don't have 953 opened, then DNS queries won't function for the zones.

Next, you also need to ensure that the nameservers are in the main DNS zone for the domain and have not only NS setup for them but also A records for the IP for the nameservers:

domain.com 14400 IN NS ns1.domain.com.
domain.com 14400 IN NS ns1.domain.com.
ns1 14400 IN A IP#
ns2 14400 IN A IP#

Where domain.com is the domain name for the nameserver main domain, and IP# is the IP# for each nameserver.
