Dedicated Server DNS Problems
I'm not sure where to post this, but this forum looked like the best bet. If I'm in a totally wrong area, if somebody could direct me to another forum I would be more than grateful.
I have a dedicated server set up with a Plesk 10 domain license. What I am trying to do is set up DNS for a couple domains manually, so I don't have to use up the 10 domain limit in plesk. These domains are fairly unimportant compared to the ones in the Plesk control panel, which is why I am trying to set them up manually.
The domain name in question is "shoesforher.net". I have the following entry in /etc/resolv.conf:
I also have the nameservers for shoesforher set up to my nameservers. If I ping these 2 nameservers, the response is what I would expect. (Also keep in mind all my other domains are fully functional, set up with Plesk.)
However, "thesabbats.com" is not resolving. If I do a host command "host thesabbats.com" the IP that is returned is not the IP of my server at all, but of "188.8.131.52" which is our old (shared) server's IP!
What is going on here? Any help would be very much appreciated. I have never set up a production site 100% using the command line here, so if I'm doing something wrong don't hold back ;)
And don't give me an answer "use plesk" because we simply cannot afford that! I also am hoping to learn from this.
