Need DNS Setup Help

    I need help setting up a my server as a DNS server using Plesk. I have been trying for a week now and still have not figured it out. Here is where I am.

    I am running Plesk 6.5 for Windows on a Windows 2003 server (I have disabled the Windows DNS server). I have created my domain and setup the DNS entries using the default template. It is configured as show below.

    Host Record type Value
    xx.xx.xx.xx1 / 24 PTR domain.com.
    domain.com. A xx.xx.xx.xx1
    domain.com. MX mail.domain.com.
    domain.com. NS ns1.domain.com.
    domain.com. NS ns2.domain.com.
    ftp.domain.com. CNAME domain.com.
    mail.domain.com. A xx.xx.xx.xx1
    ns1.domain.com. A xx.xx.xx.xx1
    ns2.domain.com. A xx.xx.xx.xx2
    webmail.domain.com. A xx.xx.xx.xx1
    www.domain.com. CNAME domain.com.

    I would like to use ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com as my nameservers.

    I have already changed the nameservers entries for my domain.com with goDaddy.com to point to ns1.theplanet.com and ns2.theplanet.com.

    I can now access my site at www.domain.com but when I try to point my other domains, domain.net to ns1.domain.com or ns2.domain.com, goDaddy.com says they do not exist. I have tried running the reports on dnsstuff.com and it can not find them either.

    I know I am missing something but I am not sure what.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Not sure as to the specifics of your hosting but this tool below has been of great help to me:

    The problem is with GoDaddy. You have to actually create the name servers, not just point your domain at those name servers.

    They actually try to tell you not to do this. :)

    You need to edit where it says "Domain Hosts" and create your name servers there.

    Hope this helps.
