    This should really be asked in the problems/how to etc section, not suggestions and feedback.

    The simplest way to see what's happening is to use an online DNS checking tool, like dnsreport.com

    What you need to keep in mind is that there are many ways to do the same thing.

    Here are the key things to keep in mind:

    The internet at large will query a DNS server to translate a human readable domain name to an IP address (e.g. domain.tld to 123.123.123.123 where that IP is the Ip address of your plesk server)

    Exactly which DNS server should be used is defined by the nameservers associated with the domain. When you register a domain, by default the namservers are usually set to those of the registrar.

    If the nameservers are set to those of the registrar then you can usually use the DNS configuration facility provided by the registrar to change A, MX, NS and CNAME settings for the domain.
    e.g.
    Code:
    domain.tld [A] ip-of-your-plesk-server
    www.domain.tld [CNAME] domain.tld
    
    would be sufficient to get a website working, but you would need more than that in practice (e.g. records for FTP, mail, webmail and so on)

    If, on the other hand, you want the internet at large to use your Plesk server's DNS facilities instead of your registrar's then you need to do a lot more.

    You'll find a link on this topic http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=260410 to a document that I have created which might help you (but keep in mind that the non-generic stuff is for Plesk 8.6 not Plesk 10 or 11 and there are some improvements in 10 and 11). I'm not going to post the direct link here - I dislike blatant self-promotion, especially when it can be difficult to tell the difference between spam and genuinely useful links.
