    Exclamation Can someone help me?

    I bought a host plan at certifiedhosting.com but not a domain. I got a free domain from dot.tk I gave them my name servers do they could redirect the domain to my website.
    nameserver: DNS1.ICERTIFIED.NET
    nameserver: DNS2.ICERTIFIED.NET

    However i get an error when going to my domain


    can someone help me resolve this??

    My DNS records on my host are as follows...

    piratetube.tk. 14400 IN A E
    localhost.piratetube.tk. 14400 IN A
    mail.piratetube.tk. 14400 IN CNAME piratetube.tk
    www.piratetube.tk. 14400 IN CNAME piratetube.tk
    ftp.piratetube.tk. 14400 IN A

    PS. Pirate in piratetube.tk is the name of my guild in world of warcraft, not pirate as in illegal.

    Your DNS records are setup properly, I can run an nslookup against your domain and it is resolving fine.

    You're getting some kind of internal server error when going to the website, so it's more likely you don't have the webserver (i.e., IIS, Apache) setup properly; or perhaps a NAT/Firewall issue is getting in the way.

    Your WoW guild. Riiight.

    500 errors come from your web server software (Apache), not from DNS. Look in your Apache error logs to see what it's complaining about. Like seack79 said you probably don't have something set up properly.

    A dns query against www.piratetube.tk returns []. A direct html request to this IP returns a redirect which is not unusual for pseudo hosts. A get request to www.piratetube.tk returns:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">
    <title>Index of /</title>
    <h1>Index of /</h1>
    Your problems are with the Web server, not the DNS server.
