    Hello,

    I have had an unually large percentage of names not resolving to there ip, i get &this page cannot be displayed& pages when i type in the name, it works if i type in the IP. The dns info is correct on the whois record and nslookup is correct too, has anyone else had this problem? How do i fix?

    In a situation like this, the first place to look would be to bind - make sure it's running.

    Be sure that when you restart bind that it doesn't say in small print to the right &Named not Running& Check and let us know

    Bind started ok
    Hello,

    i tried restarting Bind, it started ok.

    the site i am having trouble with is buildingdreams.info the dns was changed with register over a week ago, it shows up correctly on the whois and nslookup is correct.

    I had this problem before with other site but i just deleted and recreated the account, i tried that in this case(yesterday) with no success.

    please help!

    You have a DNS problem, as the domain isn't showing up for anybody but your own nameserver.

    nslookup buildingdreams.info NS.SECUREDNSHOST.COM
    Server: ns.securednshost.com
    Address: 66.96.228.71

    Name: buildingdreams.info
    Address: 66.197.177.169

    nslookup buildingdreams.info dns2.rr.com
    Server: dns2.rr.com
    Address: 24.30.201.3

    *** dns2.rr.com can't find buildingdreams.info: Non-existent host/domain

    host buildingdreams.info
    Host not found.

    Register.com nameservers are returning it as buildingdreams.info.darkorb.net, which points to an issue locally on the box. Check/reload the zone file. If you're having this issue consistently, you might also check /etc/resolv.conf to see how that is set.
