    Hi guys

    I'm trying to set up my DNS records within Plesk 8 and i don't seem to be configuring it correctly. Please see the image below for the current status of my DNS
    [​IMG]

    I have clicked on "Add New Record" and selected NS, i typed in the domain name, blaa.ie and then i typed in ns.blaa.ie into the other field. I setup another NS record likewise but this time with ns2.blaa.ie.

    I then went to my hosting control panel where i have a domain registered and i entered in ns.blaa.ie and ns2.blaa.ie as the new nameserver addresses for that domain and nothing has happened. It's been three days.

    Obviously i'm doing something wrong or i've missed a step. Could someone please advise. If i need to provide more information then please ask, i'm fairly new to this.

    Thanks

    You do not just enter ns1.domain_name & ns2.domain_name as the new nameservers. You have to register the domain name as a domain host with the ip address on the registrar's website. The way you do this is different for each registrar. Who is your registrar? If I am famaliar with them I might be able to tell you how. Either way, you can contact their tech support of assistance.

    Rollo,

    I justed edited my post. You need to registrar the domain name as a "domain host" . In Godaddy, there is an option called "Domain Host Summary". Look for something like that.

    thanks once more. I found the screen in question: "Register New NameServer" within ModernBill.

    I'm transferring my domain, cormacmoylan.com. I presume i need to set up NS1.cormacmoylan.com & NS2.cormacmoylan.com for that domain or can i use any NS setting that is related to my servers IP addresses?

    If you only have one server, you would register NS1.cormacmoylan.com & NS2.cormacmoylan.com with the default ip address of your server.
