First of all, Happy new year to you all.
I am not a DNS guru at all, and since 3 weeks now I am trying to create my own Name Server to be used with my domain, however I am always failing to accomplish that.
Can someone help me and point me to the right direction?
This is how my setup looks like now. Let say my domain is domain.com
Domain name is registered via Godaddy. I am using http://freedns.afraid.org/ where I can create all record needed to point domain to my server. So at this stage, Name Servers for the domain.com is setup to use the one from afraid.org
Al working with this setup.
However, I would like to set this up to look more professional, so I want to have a name server like NS1.DOMAIN.COM
I have found similar articles related to I_MSCP, but for some reason did not work for me: How to configure DNS for a target Domain
This is what I tested with.
Under Godaddy, manage DNS for the domain.com, I have created two hostname. NS1 and NS2, which pointed to my server.
After a while, I was able to ping NS1.DOMAIN.COM and the correct IP was displayed.
Once this hostname was confirmed to work, I have changed the DNS of domain.com, and pointed to use my own CUSTOM nameservers, the NS1.DOMAIN.COM and NS2.DOMAIN.COM
I waited 48 hours for the change to take affect, but then nothing worked anymore.
I was still able to ping NS1DOMAIN.COM or NS2.DOMAIN.COM
However I was unable to ping DOMAIN.COM. ping was not able to resolve the domain.com
On my server, DOMAIN.COM is correctly added. I also tested and created DNS ressource record such as A, MX records for this domain, but did not fixed the issue.
So based on above link: Usage of i-MSCP DNS server (You've choosen bind9 for DNS server during i-MSCP setup) -> This is how my setup looks like, but still not working.
Can someone help me out and let me know what I am doing wrong?
