new domain to home server


i registered my domain 'f0xy.net' 3 days ago, and created two custom nameservers pointing to my home IP adress ( ns1.f0xy.net and ns2.f0xy.net ). I left them for 24-48 hours, and when i now check on http://whois.sc/f0xy.net , the namservers have been set and everything is pointed to where it shoudl be. but now when someone types f0xy.net in their browser, it does not pick the domain up.

after i installed red hat 9, i have not touched the bind config, all i know is that its running.

what do i need to do to make the domain work with my server ( btw i can access the server fine with foxy.sytes.net ) .. do i need to add it in the hosts file or something?

thanks

digi

The IP of your computer hosting the web site needs to be on everyone elses ISP DNS. The site works fine using IP address of your computers.

The IP you saw above is likely that or your domain server. For instance, I use domainsite.com, and if I ping my web address is will return domainsite.com's IP rather than my home IP.

Have you made sure that your domain server has URL ofrwarding enabled, and that your URL points to your HOME IP address? I'd confirm this, as it kind of sounds like this may be the problem.

All this being said, I am admittedly NOT an expert here. I have just been through this when setting up my webserver...

Good luck...

well i created ns1.f0xy.net ( pointing to 82.33.155.48 my home ip ) and ns2.f0xy.net ( pointing to 82.33.155.48 my home ip again ). then in my domain config i have the primary and secondary nameservers set as ns1.f0xy.net and ns2.f0xy.net . bind is running and port 53 is forwarded to the server at home.

what do have to add to the named.conf and anything else?

thanks

Ok, a little confused

Are you going to host the domain off of your own domain server?


With most registries if your going to host your domain on your domain server they require at minimum two ip-address. However, saying you have set up two name servers ns1 and ns2 what does your named.conf and zone files look like? here is what you should do if you want to host your own name server.

It is recommended that you at least have two ip-address.

with your register you need to choose to domain hosting tab. That there will give you the option to set the ip and name your nameservers.

example

----.yourdomain.com
22.22.222.22

----.yourdomian.com
22.222.222.23

whereis ----- is where you should enter ns1/ns2 or whatever your going to name your name-servers. I think what your doing is setting the name server to your name servers without actually setting them to be hosted on your box. I just tried dig, nslookup is crap, and got nothing. so your zone is not correctly setup. once you get that far, and wait 24-48 hours, test your nameserver with dig.

dig yourdomain.com @ns1.yourdomain.com
