    Question DNS resolution error


    Hello, iam currently tranferring form my old host to a new hosting co0mpany (VPS)

    My webiste is:

    Current DNS servers of weloververs.net are:

    dns1.weloveservers.net - 192.227.137.3
    dns2.weloveservers.net - 192.73.235.107

    i need to sue my private dns server sthough

    ns1.superhost.gr and ns2.superhost.gr have to be to be the same ip addresses?
    Is this correct? Need to know what to point in registrar.

    I tried to alter my private dns to point to global dns servers into my registrar but all my websites fail to load.w
    What am i doign wrong?

    Please shed some light into the case,
    Thank you in advance.

    Hello,

    My domain registrar said the error is not caused due to their end,

    I don't know what csuse this DNS confusion but please look:

    They issued these commands

    $ host superhost.gr
    superhost.gr A 212.18.232.83
    $ host superhost.gr 8.8.8.8
    superhost.gr A 212.18.232.83

    and

    $ host -t ns superhost.gr
    superhost.gr NS dns1.weloveservers.net
    superhost.gr NS dns2.weloveservers.net

    gave me some understanding.

    What i dont know is why although in my domain registrar i manually used:
    ns1.superhost.gr
    ns2.superhost.gr

    to point to my VPS server ip address(that is 212.18.232.83 for both of them cause i only have one), superhost.gr and actuslly all fo my domains still want to use the old DNS servers.

    Can you please expain to me that and also help me resolve it?
    I would greatly appreciate the knowlenge your experience would provide me.

    Why do you have to manage your own DNS server for your domain?

    No. In fact they should be completely separate machines in completely different locations. For redundancy. Making them the same machine is pointless at best.

    Not according to DNS. You sure you made those changes? Saved those changes?

    Like I implied, that's bad. Don't do that.

    Code:
       
    
    $ host -t ns superhost.gr 
       superhost.gr            NS      dns2.weloveservers.net 
       superhost.gr            NS      dns1.weloveservers.net 
    
       $ host -t A www.superhost.gr 
       www.superhost.gr        A       212.18.232.83 
    
       $ host -t A ns1.superhost.gr 
       Authority section contains (1 record): 
       superhost.gr            SOA  dns1.weloveservers.net 
       root.dns1.weloveservers.net ( 
                               1429857292      ;serial number (version) 
                               10800  ;slave refresh period (3 hours) 
                               3600 ;slave retry interval (1 hour) 
                               604800 ;slave expire time (1 week) 
                               38400  ;negative response TTL (10 hours, 40 minutes) 
                               ) 
        !!! ns1.superhost.gr does not exist, try an authoritative server
    You said you want the world to ask ns[12].superhost.gr for the details of
    the zone superhost.gr, right? In order to do that, they must first
    know how to reach ns[12].superhost.gr and i don't know ow to provided this info
    to the DNS system.

    PLEASE DO HELP me resolve this. I'm about to go nuts

    I don't know who they are or what kind of UI they have.

    Try Google. Seriously. "<registrar> change domain nameserver". If that doesn't work, look for an FAQ. If you still can't find anything, contact them.

    I will say you are in good hands with requinix. But your idea of following anyone blindly on a forum is just plain stupid. You should take our advice with a grain of salt. Research to determine if our advice is good and teach yourself along the way. If you want to take advice blindly, hire a professional who can ask the proper questions and address your exact needs properly.

    With that said, who is your registrar?

    Thank you for your advice.

    Document Moved is my domain registar

    and the constant problem is: intoDNS: superhost.gr - check DNS server and mail server health

    the authoritave namservers dont get chnage to ns[12].superhost.gr but they remain what you seen in the link provided.
