    Hi guys,

    We have a new web server, still in trial period, one domain\account on it. The domain is registered with one and one, and i have changed the name servers for this domain to the new server. Its a test domain so i can put it here [Removed]. For some reason when i got to whatsmydns.net and do a lookup of the name servers the domain is returning failed lookup for all countries except turkey!

    I have spoken to 1and1 about this, but they are saying its a problem with my new server?
    Doesnt the name servers for a domain start purely with the registrar? Sure if i couldnt look up an A record etc then thats the server, but the names servers are not even proper gating and 1and1 say its nothing to do with them?

    Hello :)

    Have you tried using a website such as IntoDNS to verify if the name servers are configured properly at the registrar? Did you create the name servers with the appropriate name server IP addresses at the registrar?

    Thank you.
