Nameserver problem with dedicated server. Please help.


Hi,

I have a problem with nameservers and dedicated server.

I have two nameservers that named as ns10.domain.com and ns11.domain.com and that nameservers are pointed to my server's IPs. I checked nameservers on http://registrar.verisign-grs.com/whois/index.html . It seems correct.

Also i filled all necessary field in cPanel during configuration. Everything seems fine but i can't use or ping to the nameservers.

How can i check the configuration is ok ?
How can i find the source of problem ?

I need to solve this problem immediately. I'd be really glad if anyone can help.

Thanks,
Tim

There are various tools you can use, like dig or nslookup.
There are also online tools like dnsreport (requires registration), or rodentNet

The fact that you cannot ping a host is not a real problem, because sometimes ping is forbidden from firewalls in between you and the host in question.

I'm really confused.

As i said i can check the nameservers on verisign page and it seems correct but i can't get same results with other tools. It's been 4-5 days. It should be OK.

Here, the records;

Server Name: NS10.WEBHOSTINGPLANET.NET
IP Address: 78.129.174.50
Registrar: GODADDY.COM, INC.
Whois Server: whois.godaddy.com
Referral URL: http://registrar.godaddy.com

Server Name: NS11.WEBHOSTINGPLANET.NET
IP Address: 78.129.174.58
Registrar: GODADDY.COM, INC.
Whois Server: whois.godaddy.com
Referral URL: http://registrar.godaddy.com

There is someting wrong but i can't figure out. Do you have any idea ?

Well both the hostnames and the IP addresses of your dns servers cannot be resolved. Perhaps you've setup a long TTL value.
Try to resolve your domain locally with dig, using these dns servers to see if it works:
Code:
dig domain.com @ns10.webhostingplanet.net

o_O

I disabled firewall
I stopped iptables
and voila! o_O

After i started iptables, enabled firewall and still working but just for me : p

I think i should add something to SELinux but i don't know what.
