Can use host dns but not my dns


I have a dedicated server being hosted by a company.
I am having a problem resolving my domains by name using the DNS supplied by my ISP. When I use the DNS of the company hosting the server I can resolve the domains by name. Anyone have any suggestions?

try some of the dns-servers outside if they can give a right answer to your request.
check your dns db.files for notify-no or similar.

else: version? bind9?

sl mritch. :-( no dns-expert.)

you need to check the zone files for your domain. Check options like "allow-query" , "view", "acl" ..

Check what name servers (primary and secondary) have been set up for your domain. It may be that your hosting provider has restrictions on who can and who cannot use their DNS servers.
