28800 ; refresh, seconds
7200 ; retry, seconds
3600000 ; expire, seconds
86400 ) ; minimum, seconds

domain.com. 14400 IN NS ns.domain.com.
domain.com. 14400 IN NS ns2.domain.com.

hi maxhost

it will be something like this
@ 14400 IN SOA ns.domain.com. root.ns.domain.com. (

nothing can cause this .. the www account scripts add it this way when it creates any new account.

and you will not have any problem even if you keep it as it is.

best regards,
Parag

hi, thanks parag

yes account wokrs fine...
But firstname.lastname.com = my private e-mail address.....!!!
So if there is a way to change it back to: root.ns.maindomain.com
it will be great...

For e.g. we have some italy resellers and there accounts does not work with this entry... beacuse they where not able to register with the italian NIC


Is there a way ?

Thank you

No there is something wrong with wwwacct.. it should not put your contact details, and we have the same problem... instead of adding root.ns.domain.com. it's adding pagers and email addresses and sometimes subdomains from random accounts on the server... and it is causing new accounts not to resolve until it's fixed..
