..which makes it difficult to properly troubleshoot.

  
$TTL 1h

    ns1    A    1.1.1.1
    mail    A    1.1.1.1
    www    A    1.1.1.1

What could be the problem?
    

If you are going to host authoritative DNS for mydomain.com. on a name
server host under the same domain, for example ns1.mydomain.com., then
you need to seed the process of finding your authoritative name server
via a glue A record at your domain registrar - this A record for
ns1.mydomain.com. gets pushed up to the com. TLD servers, so that
recursive resolvers around the Internet can find the correct name server
to ask, "where is mydomain.com.".

  

Thanks for the reply!  I've investigated this at my domain registrar, and ns1.mydomain.com did get pushed to the .com TLD servers (or root servers)

Also, so that it'll be easier to troubleshoot, I will be using my actual info (oh no!)

The domain is CD-EXPRESS.COM
NS1.CD-EXPRESS.COM already resolves to my static IP of 208.127.75.221

My domain registrar said that I need a primary and secondary server assigned, so I created NS2.CD-EXPRESS.COM to point to the same IP 208.127.75.221

my bind settings is as follows (I've removed comments with a "//"):
********************** NAMED.CONF start ***********************************************************

        type hint;

*QUESTION:
Is the line comment for a bind configuration file, including the includes, a "//" or ";" or ":"??  I've seen the semicolons and colons in some bind configurations as well

I'll be happy to get ANY HELP.  Thanks a lot!
