Beginner DNS Issues
I am completely new to Linux and my new VPS - I'm just trying to give it a go really! I am running CentOS with cPanel and am having problems with my DNS setup.
I have my own domain (richardbeddington.com) that I cannot seem to get to point to the IP I have setup for it on my WHM.
When running "host" or "dig" I am getting a SERVFAIL error. Although when I run
I can see the two nameservers that I've set it up to:
host -t ns richardbeddington.com
Now I don't know whether I should have it to some sort of local nameserver, or whether I should explicitly reference this domain in etc/resolve.conf, but some of the default domains that I have for this VPS (just some subdomains of the hosting company) don't seem to be setup in this way and work fine.
richardbeddington.com. 83448 IN NS ns2.vps-10.com.
richardbeddington.com. 83448 IN NS ns1.vps-10.com.
If you need any other details obviously I can post them here.
Thanks for your time,
Hi and welcome
to me it seems, the two nameservers ns1/2.vps-10.com are running,
but have no information about the zone richardbeddington.com.
I assume, these ns are run by your hosting company and there are methods in place to manage dns zones.
Maybe there is a webinterface/customer login of that hosting company, that you can use?
Thanks so much for your reply, it got me looking outside of the server and into the domain switch I'd done. I'd got so bogged down in thinking I didn't know how the server worked I didn't bother querying my domain registrar.
