Dns help

By birzes ·
I own a registered domain called adminsoncall.com... I had is hosted by a we b host for a while but i figured I would put it on a dedicated server box that I lease . I changed the ns names at my registrar to ns1.adminsoncall and ns2.adminsoncall . I set up the web service and added the host header name of adminsoncall.com and www.adminsoncall.com
I created a forward lookupzone called adminsoncall.com and a reverse lookup zone.



Here is the wierdest thing I have going so far

if I do an nslookup 207.106.122.42 it comes out adminsoncall.com
if i do ns lookup adminsoncall.com , I get nothing
If I go to www.adminsoncall.com I get nothing
If I go to ns1.adminsoncall.com I get a index.html that I put in the sites dir
i get the same thing if I go to ns2.adminsoncall.com

I am suspecting I am close but how close I am is unknown at this time.

Any ideas

I use my registrars DNS servers: dns19.register.com
dns20.register.com

I then point my domain name to my IP address. My DNS server is set up like yours.

When you went to your registrar and registered your two name servers, did you also provide their IP addresses? If not, go back and add or change the names to the appropriate IP addresses. In the zone file, you will need an "A" (address) record for the domain itself, in order to do "nslookup adminsoncall.com". You shoulld also have a MX record, to handle your e-mails.

It appears that the reverse lookup is fine, which is why "nslookup 207.106.122.42" works.

Which server is handling your PC's DNS queries?
