    Here goes...

    I have 2 dedicated servers on seperate hosts for my own projects and some small hosting for others.

    Both these servers are running cpanel WHM.

    I know this isnt recommended but up til now I've been using server1 as both my nameservers running just 2 IP's........

    Server1 hostname =

    I've never had any DNS related problems with the above server. All the domains i've run frm there have been accessable from everywhere.

    I now have a second server in a different location and I've been happily adding domains to this and using the above nameservers.

    server2 has established a connection with server1 as its master nameserver - when I create accounts on server2 they corerectly update the zone files on server1.

    Recently some of the domains I've been hosting on the new box have become unnavailable - or there one minute, gone the next. One person told me they can intermittently see the domain but cannot connect to email.

    This is definateley a DNS issue but why ? From my DSL connection its fine and I can see all of the domains on the server. Other people on different isps cannot. Additionally, one of the sites had a google adwords campaign paused because google said the domain wasnt there.

    One domain was added 5 days ago and the guy I designed the ite for cannot see the domain - but I can.

    I'm not sure what I need to do as far as reverse DNS or even if I have the zone files wrong. I'd really appreciate some advice on this.

    Incidentally, I still want to keep using 1 or both of these servers as the pri and 2nd nameservers.
