    I have in my dns template the following settings

    Host---------------Record type-----Value
    <domain>.---------------NS---------ns1.<domain>.
    <domain>.---------------NS---------ns2.<domain>.
    <domain>.---------------A----------<ip>
    <domain>.---------------MX (10)----mail.<domain>.
    <ip> / 24---------------PTR--------<domain>.
    ftp.<domain>.-----------CNAME------<domain>.
    mail.<domain>.----------A----------<ip>
    mssql.<domain>.---------A----------<ip>
    mysql.<domain>.---------A----------<ip>
    ns1.<domain>.-----------A----------<ip>
    ns2.<domain>.-----------A----------1.2.3.178
    sitebuilder.<domain>.-----A----------<ip>
    webmail.<domain>.-------A----------<ip>
    13 DNS records total----------


    I created a my own subscription based on the unlimited plan template and in my subscription's control panel i have now the following configuration.


    Host--------------------Record type-----Value
    1.2.3.4 / 24------------------PTR--------domain.com.
    ftp.domain.com.--------------CNAME------domain.com.
    domain.com.------------------NS---------ns2.domain.com.
    domain.com.------------------NS---------ns1.domain.com.
    domain.com.------------------A----------1.2.3.4
    domain.com.------------------MX (10)----mail.domain.com.
    lists.domain.com.------------CNAME------domain.com.
    mail.domain.com.--------------A----------1.2.3.4
    mssql.domain.com.------------A----------1.2.3.4
    ns1.domain.com.--------------A----------1.2.3.4
    ns2.domain.com.--------------A----------2.3.4.5
    sitebuilder.domain.com.--------A----------1.2.3.4
    webmail.domain.com.----------A----------1.2.3.4
    www.domain.com.---CNAME------domain.com.

    after doing the following configuration i restarted plesk
    (i don't know why plesk is putting .s at the end, but i think it's just for display?) anyway When i tell my domain registrar that the nameservers for a particular domain (say xyz.com) are ns1.domain.com & ns2.domain.com nothing happens. I wait 48 to 72 hours but still it's not working. The domains keep pointing to the old ns servers with the registrar. seems that the settings are not applied because the registrar doesn't like my ns servers. I have another domain with 1and1 which i tried to point to my ns servers and i got Missing service!

    Please help me figure out what i'm doing wrong. I got the 2 different ip addresses set up on the server machine and plesk but have no clue why it's not working.

    thanks in advance.

    have you registered ns1 and ns2 as domain servers with your provider?

    With 1and1, I could not point a domain to my name servers unless i registered those name servers as such first. the reverse on the ip's also has to show ns1 and ns2 respectively.

    You need to create glue records (register with your domain provider as mentioned above).
