    Hello, first off thanks for taking the time to read this.

    I am having a few problems with my newly bought server over at GoDaddy /
    SecureServer. I have contacted them numerous times about this and have gotten
    the same response time and time again even with escalated tickets. Ok, to the
    problem.

    I setup 3 DNS zones, each with different IP's. I matched them up in the domain
    name config in godaddy for everythingyourspace.com also. Now here is where it
    gets weird. Sometimes, I will get on and try to access my site
    (everythingyourspace.com) and it will say Domain not found/404 error.. Like the
    DNS/server doesn't even exist. Other times, it will load right up. Now, I have
    asked around and gotten friends to check for me; they have the same errors. I
    then proceeded to try and get on by using a proxy. Well, sometimes using a
    proxy will allow me access to the server. Would this be an ISP issue or a DNS
    issue? I'm almost positive I set everything up correctly and I have extensively
    went through double/tripple checking everything. I have been losing a
    significant amount of hits due to this, so I know its consistant among
    my users..

    Have you ever had this problem come in as a ticket? Do you know what to do? I
    am lost. Thanks.

    You've done a few things right, but left out one important step.

    First off, your Nameservers look like they have been properly registered at godaddy.

    You have also set your domain to use the registered nameservers.

    Your servers DNS / NS Records have been updated so they point to the right nameservers.

    The thing you forgot to do though, is create A Records for your nameservers.

    Login to WHM, goto Edit DNS. Select your domain.

    Create the following records:

    ns1 A 208.109.23.203
    ns2 A 208.109.23.211
    ns3 A 208.109.23.210

    Hit Save, and your problem should be fixed... Give it a few minutes, and then refresh the dnsreport link above.

    Awesome. I needed to see that; now look! Fixed. What about the 2 warnings?

    Nameservers on separate class C's
    and
    Single Point of Failure

    Anything to worry about? Thanks a lot.

    That's just because the original intention of multiple nameservers was so if one server, or even datacenter, went down, there would still be somewhere to go. With only 1 server there isn't a lot of options.
