    Hi there!

    First of all, i like to thank you for this great Product Plesk! It works fine and fast!

    If i set up a domain almost works fine, but I still get some "errors" if I check my domain on:


    FAIL DNS servers have A records

    How can i get rid of these messages? Or doesn't it matter?

    Thanx :)

    First of all make sure that you have assigned the IP in plesk that you are using for primary and secondry dns. Usually people forget to setup the secondary ip in Plesk / server.

    I would recommend you to setup a correct template first for your servers:

    Login to Plesk > Server > DNS Settings >

    Host Record type Value

    <domain>. NS ns1.your-name-server.com.
    <domain>. NS ns2.your-name-server.com.
    <domain>. A <ip>
    <domain>. MX (10) mail.<domain>.
    <ip> / 24 PTR <domain>.
    ftp.<domain>. CNAME <domain>.
    mail.<domain>. A <ip>
    ns1.<domain>. A
    ns2.<domain>. A
    sitebuilder.<domain>. A
    webmail.<domain>. A <ip>

    After settings your DNS template in above way. Simply go you domain > DNS > Click on restore default with www prefix and this will be ok. Please use your own name servers and IPs in your DNS template.

    Hi Thanx for your great post.

    My question is also if i need a domain name for using my dns server?

    Couldn't I use just the two ip's which were provided from my virtual server?

    Yes, you will use your own IP's that has been given by your virtual service provider. And you can use your own DNS for your domain.

    You must modify above records according to your IP's and DNS....!
