I’m trying to configure my own DNS with Virtualmin for a domain that I registered through GoDaddy. However, after following the instructions of GoDaddy’s support staff, I still can’t successfully ping my domain. They told me that everything is configured correctly on the GoDaddy end and that my A-records look fine (see below) in the following note:
This seems to be an issue with the server. I show Godaddy has your nameservers setup correctly however it looks like the server many not be configured with these nameservers/domain. We would recommend reviewing the server to make sure the domain is configured properly on that side.
In my GoDaddy Control Pannel
I’ve configured both my nameservers as
and I’ve also configured my Host Names with my two ip numbers
In my Virtualmin Records file, I have
$ttl 38400 @ IN SOA NS1.UPSMART.COM. root.NS1.UPSMART.COM. ( 1387829375 10800 3600 604800 38400 ) @ IN NS NS1.UPSMART.COM. @ IN NS NS2.UPSMART.COM. UPSMART.com. IN A 22.214.171.124 www.UPSMART.com. IN A 126.96.36.199 ftp.UPSMART.com. IN A 188.8.131.52 m.UPSMART.com. IN A 184.108.40.206 localhost.UPSMART.com. IN A 127.0.0.1 webmail.UPSMART.com. IN A 220.127.116.11 admin.UPSMART.com. IN A 18.104.22.168 mail.UPSMART.com. IN A 22.214.171.124 UPSMART.com. IN MX 5 mail.UPSMART.com. UPSMART.com. IN TXT "v=spf1 a mx a:UPSMART.com ip4:126.96.36.199 ?all"
My question would be if anyone can think of something that I might me leaving out. Any suggestions are much appreciated.
Ah, I see an obvious problem with your zone. You don’t have address records for your two nameservers, ns1 and ns2. You need to have them both in your zone file, and in GoDaddy’s control panel as glue records.
