Re: DNS Configuration doubt

Hi darlock,

Its simply to find out what the problem is.

Do a whois on "EsNic" and see if it can lookup your domain name. If it is
there, then the problem is with the DNS servers (or maybe the DNS servers
aren't even listed properly there?). If it isn't there your domain isn't
even registered.

If it finds your domain name, use one of the listed DNS servers to do an
nslookup. If the listed DNS servers can resolve your domain, then you are in
the clear and it is your local bind that is messed up. If they can't then it
the DNS servers that set up properly for your domain.

Simple, eh? ;-)
