    Hi Everyone,

    I am posting here because I am having issues with A and MX records being resolved on my server.
    I have a Virtual Private Server with an ISP in Australia that has the main server IP 203.217.2.103.

    I created private name servers following a guide I found on the Internet.

    These name servers are:
    dns1server1.lfmhosting.com 203.217.2.119
    dns2server1.lfmhosting.com 203.217.2.128

    I have attached a screenshot detailing how I created the name servers in my account at my domain provider active-domain.com.

    I added the name servers to a couple of domains www.leapingfoxmultimedia.com.au and www.ryan-gomez.com and these resolved to the server fine, but today they have suddenly stopped working alltogether.

    I have a feeling that there is an issue with the DNS settings in WHM but I am not sure. Is anyone able to point me in the right direction and tell me what settings I need to change in order to get everything resolving properly.

    Previously I had problems with emails (I was only able to send/receive to domains on my server) but now that has also stopped working. I figure this issue is related to the DNS setting issue entailed above.

    If both these domains are using the same nameservers, it shouldn't be too tough to match up your settings. One works, one does not.
