    A DNS cleanup shouldn't cause that to happen. Is the "Named/BIND" service running on your nameservers? If not, what's the error message when you try to restart the service?

    Check that your domain's zone files are still there in /var/named/ - the DNS cleanup will have removed any entries from named.conf if the domain doesn't appear in /var/named/

    Do a DNSreport.com for a couple of the affected sites, since that should tell you where the problem lays. Are you sure its not because the httpd service is down?

    See if anything is here /var/named/

    If so then try a back of your named config file.
