    Using dot com domain with DNS nameserver


    I'm running a webserver and DNS server. On the hosting site streamline.net. When I click on Change DNS Nameservers and enter a .co.uk domain in the Nameserver text box. I'm able to change the nameserver. When entering a dot com domain in the Nameserver text box. A error message appears saying "An error occurred whilst trying to change your DNS nameservers. Please try again later. If the problem persists, please contact technical support via a support ticket". I've tried contacting support a couple of times although they've not been helpful. Can I only use a .co.uk domain for the nameserver?

    No, pretty much anything should be okay.

    Can you say what domain you have and what nameservers you're trying to use?

    What's the .com nameserver you're trying to use?

    My sincere apologies - I skipped over this one while looking for spam, only saw a link, and deleted it. I can see now that it was actually a response to a question and isn't spam at all. Sorry requinix and frasersales-ltd! It won't happen again.

    The link posted was: ns1.fk-sales.com

    Everything looks fine regarding the nameserver: it exists and it has records for fk-wholesale.com. I don't know why there would be problems, besides there being something wrong with the host themselves.
