Hello :)

You mentioned that you assigned the following name servers to wzhost.info at Godaddy:

ns1.wzhost.info
ns2.wzhost.info
However, currently, I see the following name servers are still assigned to this domain name:

ns78.domaincontrol.com.
ns77.domaincontrol.com.

Please login to your domain registrar (GoDaddy), and ensure the name servers have been changed, not just registered.

Thank you.

Yes, it can take several hours for a domain name to propagate throughout the Internet after you change the name servers. I wanted to point out that you need to register your name servers, "AND" assign those name servers to the domain name. These are two tasks you must complete at the domain registrar.

Thank you.

The /etc/resolv.conf file on your system contains name servers that the server uses to look up domains that it does not host. It has little to do with domains or nameservers you will host on your server. You should use the resolvers provided by your data center in the /etc/resolv.conf file, rather than your own name servers.

Thank you.

Yes, many customers use Google's public DNS resolvers in their /etc/resolv.conf files (e.g. 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4). This is an acceptable alternative to the resolvers provided by your data center.

Thank you.
