    Hello, i am having a strange problem. I own the domain bellancomputer.com which is managed through GoDaddy. I have CentOS installed on a Dell Precision 530. The machine has two nic's, one for internet and one to serve my network (DHCP). I installed bind at the time of installation as well as caching-nameserver after the fact.

    ; <<>> DiG 9.3.4 <<>> www.bellancomputer.com

    so apparently everything is showing now. Could it have been that the remote computer you were trying to dig the records fromwas not using your nameserver, but some other that had yet to update?
