    DNS - GODADDY Nameserver wont work so I use DNS Hosting


    I cannot enter ns1.mydomain.com in name server with Godaddy so i try this feature, and it says this.

    Ive entered the address and IP i want, still doesn work?

    anyone know How to host your own website, while having bind 9 installed, so when you enter www.mydomain.com it goes straight too your ip and gets resolved?

    regards

    HERE IS THE MESSAGE ON GODADDY ABOUT DOMAIN HOSTS, which i think is me at <ip address>


    Domain hosts are not required unless, for example, you intend to set up your own DNS server. We recommend that you DO NOT use this tool unless you have a thorough understanding of this process.

    Please DO NOT enter "www" as your host name. This is not a redirection service; it will not direct your domain to an IP address. If you are unsure about what a domain host is or you need help in registering a nameserver, please use the "Customer Support" link on this page.

    Go to the Go Daddy web site at http://www.godaddy.com/
    Click the My Account link.
    Login using your login name or customer number and password.
    Once you logged into your account.

    Click the link labeled, Domain List in the GOTO section.
    Click on the domain name that you wish to use for your nameservers.
    Locate Domain Host Information at the bottom.
    Use the link named click here to add.
    Enter the first nameserver with its IP address.
    Click Register Name Server.
    Enter the second nameserver with its IP address.
    Click Register Name Server.
    Please allow 24-48 hours for the nameservers to be registered over the Internet. Or, you are able to change the nameservers information for your domain name instantly within Go Daddy.

    YOU MUST enter a second nameserver. If you only have one ip use it for both ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com
    You won't have redundency but you can find a friend later on to run your secondary.

    Domain Host


    Ive done this about a day ago, and i turned off redirecting and I get nothing, do i wait longer, or is something wrong..

    when i goto www.domainwhitepages.com
    the domain is listed with the name servers still there, eg park for godaddy, will this ever be removed, if it does change is this an indication its been updated

    as i cant remove name server in godaddy only add domain host.

    so when domainwhitepages is updated will this affect take out park in my whois search??

    do you know about this?

    Thanks..

    There should be two forms. A form to register the name servers where you specify a domain and IP, and also a form where you specify the name servers that host your zone and you only specify the domain. After you registered your name servers you must go to that other form and add those servers as hosts for your zone.

    Whois results update sooner than on DNS. If your whois is still wrong, then you've got something to fix.
    Send me a private message if you would like me to setup your DNS for you for a price of your choosing. This is the preferred method if your DNS needs to be fixed/setup fast and you don't have the time to bounce messages back and forth on a forum. Also, check out these links:

    Ok Guess what< its Working


    I edited domain host and Put inthe IP address with the ns1.mydomain.com tag, and looks like the internet register finally updated.. YES. my first domain.

    Now I got a funny quesion for you. If I host

    website 1 at <ip address>/webpage1

    and website 2 at <ip address>/webpage2

    How would i configure BIND 9.0 to go to these different paths

    or do I need to configure something like

    webpage1.mydomain.com ?? and

    webpage2.mydomain.com

    how would i set up the second level. Although Id prefer /webpage1

    as apache supports that structure and I have no idea how to setup the latter.

    Thanks is Working, (now for specific webpages)

    Bind - Root.hint file?


    I have received this message from godaddy regarding trying to register ns1.mydomain.com etc into the name server

    >Error: pendmod: (550) Parent domain not registered;

    so does this mean ns1.mydomain.com needs to be purchased?

    Also, Silentrage? can you explain a bit about the rooti.hint file, I copied yours exactly as is, as the default of this correct? and what purpose is root.hint?

    Regards,

    ns1.mydomain.com does not have to be bought. You just buy mydomain.com and that's it.

    root.hint
    This file is also commonly called "named.ca" on linux systems. In your named.conf you create a zone for "." which is root in the dns system. This is a special zone of type "hint". So that's where "root.hint" came from. It contains the addresses of all the root servers. When a client asks your server about a domain, and your server doesn't host that domain, it'll do one of 2 things with that root.hint file. Either you allowed recursion in which case the server will resend the request to a root.hint server, or you did not allow recursion and the server will simply pass the contents of the root.hint to the client.

    Yeah, week 2! You should have provided us your REAL domain since day ONE but you still haven't done so.

    Just so you know, 99% of the questions in this forum require the original poster to provide the real domain name and your real static IP.

    Ok, yours is a familiar face and I don't think I can help you any further online, I just don't use godaddy.com and people who has has even tried to give you step by step instructions. I don't know what you're doing wrong, obviously, you don't know what you're doing wrong to tell us.

    So I'm going to give you a desperate measure. A measure you should NEVER EVER do. But maybe you'll do it anyway cause you're not very good at figuring stuff out for yourself. In the past people have given me access to registrar accounts, routers, linux systems, whatever, and let me figure out personally what is wrong and fix the problem. An easy way out for you is to get ahold of me privately and giving me access to your godaddy.com account. While I'm there I'll write up a step by step thing for that registrar and fix your problem. If you need some assurance I'm an honest guy, I can get you in touch with people I've helped in this way.

    If you still having problems over at Go Daddy here are some steps to take to at least get you domain name pointed to you hosting server

    You can not enter IP address as name servers, you will need to register your own name server using the IP address and then set the name servers to your own registered name servers.

    You can register your name servers under your account's Domain Host Summary section. Registering your name server IP addresses allows you to define a name for your server based on your domain name. You can register any host name you wish, in the format:
    host.domain.tld (example: "nameserver1.godaddy.com")

    If you understand what is involved and have made the necessary preparations, please follow the steps below to register your name servers.

    First, log into your customer account:

    Go to the <a href="https://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/shopper_lookup.asp?isc=webjsb">Go Daddy Account Login Page</a>
    Log in using your account username (which may be the same as your customer number) and password

    If you have trouble logging in, our password reset form may help you. You can find this form through the following link:
    <a href="https://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/shopper_GetHint.asp?isc=webjsb">Password Reset Form</a>

    Once logged in just follow these steps:

    Select 'Manage Domains' from the 'Domain Names' menu at the top of the page
    Click on the domain you wish to configure nameservers for
    Click the '+' next to 'Domain Host Summary' from the menu that appears on the right
    Click on the link named 'Click here to see details or to modify'
    Enter the first name server with it's IP address
    Click 'Save Changes'

    You can click 'Add New Host' to register more than one server. When complete, please allow a full 48 hours for the server names' registration. These changes to the settings on your domain take a full 48 hours to become effective across the internet because of the number of networks involved, and because these networks are controlled by several different agencies. This delay applies to all domains with any Registrar, not just Go Daddy.

    Once this is done follow the steps listed below to modify your domain name servers to point them to your newly registered name servers

    For your domain to work with your hosting account (once it is set up), the domain must be pointed to the hosting account's network.

    Go to the <a href="https://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/shopper_lookup.asp?isc=webjsb">Go Daddy Account Login Page</a>
    Log in using your account username (which may be the same as your customer number) and password

    Once logged in just follow these steps:

    Select 'Manage Domains' from the 'Domain Names' menu at the top of the page
    Click the box in front of the domain(s) you need to modify
    Click on the 'Set Nameservers' button that appears in the orange menu
    If you have selected multiple domains click the 'Click here to Enable Fields' link that appears under the warning on the right
    Select the 'Custom Nameservers' option
    Enter the name servers for your hosting provider, starting with the "Name Server 1" box
    When complete, click 'Save Changes'
    Allow 48 hours for the changes to take effect*

    You must use registered name server names in the "Name Server" boxes, you can not use a name server's IP address. **If you need to register your DNS IP address as a name server under your domain, please go back to the domain control center in your account, and choose "Domain Details". Then register your server name under "Domain Host Information".** Once you are finished, be sure to log out of your account.

    *Changes to the settings of a domain take a full 48-72 hours due to the number of networks involved; these networks are controlled by many different entities and update independently.

    P.S. I suggest paying closer attention to the information that is provided to you by the people that you are asking assistance of, as almost every post here goes over what needs to be done, but you have not taken upon yourself to follow through on the direction in which many have pointed you in.
