    Okay, ive done this many times before, but mabey im missing something.

    I just installed cPanel on my server, and I did the setup and whatnot i set these nameservers.

    The servers IP is - 68.164.207.60
    The server hostname is - hsrvr1.skulltech.com

    ns1.skulltech.com - 68.164.207.60
    ns2.skulltech.com - 68.164.207.59

    I have added the A Entries for these too, and registered them at the domain registrar. Shouldnt they be working without a problem? I am not able to ping either of these it says that they cannot be found. Any help would be appreciated!

    First thing to check is see if the server can find itself

    from root with ssh

    # nslookup hsrvr1.skulltech.com

    then paste the results here

    Unfortunatley the registrar wont let me update the nameservers to ns1./ns2.skulltech.com for some reason. It has been 22 hours since i have registered them with the registrar so im sure they should be propogated already. So i should just wait longer for them to propogate?

    -bash-3.00# host ns1.skulltech.com
    ns1.skulltech.com has address 68.164.207.60
    -bash-3.00# host ns2.skulltech.com
    ns2.skulltech.com has address 68.164.207.59

    -bash-3.00# host hsrvr1.skulltech.com
    hsrvr1.skulltech.com has address 68.164.207.60
