DNS Lookup Explanation

Mar 14, 2007

I want to know how serious following nameserver problem can be in reality:
[url] ?

From DNS timing someone could conclude it's a slow hosting.

Can anyone explain above results "accurately" ? I still don't know what's "good" result in DNS timing: A or F?

The problem is that
[url] loads slow (5-10 seconds on T1 connection), here's a speed test. I'm aware images and scripts contribute to slow site loading.

My question is: Beside removing some images from the Home page, is it any reason to change the hosting (regarding DNS tests).

Domain Parking - Wildcard Domain Name Server (DNS)?

Nov 5, 2008

We have a lot of unused domains that we'd like to setup domain parking for.

To keep it simple, we'd like to just change the namesevers to and (not real nameservers!) and the domains would then automatically show a simple web page.

We use cpanel servers and are wondering how easy this is to do? I've seem mention of wildcard dns? Is that the answer?

Reverse Domain Name Server (DNS) ARPA For Domain On VPS

Jul 6, 2007

I have a vps with dedicated ip's for my domain names.

I read that in order for mails coming from my server not be picked up as spam, i need to add reverse ip entries.

Now i have already added the glue nameserver records on my godaddy control panel, -> ->

But do i need to speak to the datacenter to add the reverse dns entries for my domain on their nameservers? What about if i host my nameservers offsite, but then have my webserver/mailserver etc inside the datacenter? Would i need to request the datacenter where the nameservers are hosted to add the reverse ip entries for the domain, and then the request the same from the datacenter for my web/mail servers to add the reverse entries?

Is it really required?

Domain Does Not Resolve :: Domain Name Server (DNS) Issues

Aug 14, 2008

I've been having some DNS problems with one of my domains for quite some time now. The domain does not always resolve - some go days without being able to access the site.

I ran a simple BASH script to show what I mean. I replaced my domain with "" and the IP with "".

# for i in `seq 1 15`; do host; done has address mail is handled by 0
Host not found: 2(SERVFAIL) has address
Host not found: 2(SERVFAIL) has address
Host not found: 2(SERVFAIL) has address
Host not found: 2(SERVFAIL) mail is handled by 0 has address
Host not found: 2(SERVFAIL)
Host not found: 2(SERVFAIL) has address
Host not found: 2(SERVFAIL) mail is handled by 0 has address mail is handled by 0 has address mail is handled by 0 has address mail is handled by 0 has address
Host not found: 2(SERVFAIL) has address mail is handled by 0 has address mail is handled by 0 has address mail is handled by 0 has address mail is handled by 0

Has anyone experienced a similar problem? I have gone over the DNS records countless times and see no problems. The site is hosted on my own dedicated server.

Primary Server Using Script To Upload On 2nd Server Without A Domain

Oct 20, 2007

i am currently with a host, hosting my important sites. I am now going to purchase some space from another host purely for storage purposes and bandwidth usage as they are within my budget.

Now i have my primary domain with my main host, and i would like to have a script or link from my current host which leads onto my 2nd host for users to upload their images or files. Now i have a problem, the second host that i will have will not have a registered domain attached to it, but rather it will be just storage.

I would prefer to have a subdomain from my primary host pointing to my second host. The problem is where will the subdomain point to? Or will it even work that way without having to purchase another domain?

Using Domain Name Server (DNS) And A Backup Server

Mar 4, 2007

I currently have two VPS servers, each with 2 DNS names running on them as follows: (on Server A) (on Server A) (on Server B) (on Server B)

I have websites running on each server and I would like to have something set-up so that when one server goes down, the other server displays a nice page saying the website is unavailable currently and will be back shortly - you know, something nicer then the normal "Server Not Found" default messages.

What is the best way to do this?

If I have CLIENTDOMAIN.COM and put them on Server A and they use all 4 DNS server names, will the top two DNS names always be used by people finding the website, and the bottom two choices only be used if the top two can't be found?

I believe I have to create an account on Server B for them as well, just only placing the temporary page within the account, rather then a whole copy of their website. Correct?

VPS - IP And Domain Name Server (DNS)

Jun 30, 2008

I'm going to start to configurate a VPS and I have a few questions, please help me.

1- If I have a VPS and I want to have some domains there, Do I need private nameservers?
Is there any other way to go? (for example, could I use the DNS of my provider?)

2- How many IP Addresses do I need for a VPS?
I think if I have to use private nameservers I'd need two IP for them. Is it correct?

And if I want to have reverse DNS for my Host, I think I would need a IP address to be used on for that. Is it correct?

So, I would need at least 3 IP Addresses. Is it correct?

3- Is it possible to use a VPS with only two IP Address?
Many VPS providers give you only two IP Addresses. Could I use 1 IP Address for DNS and reverse DNS for my Host at the same time?

Is it not a problem with hotmail, yahoo, gmail, etc?

Domain Name Server DNS Pointing

Feb 10, 2007

Hello all, hope someone can help.

I have a domain incl. hosting ( and three extra domain names, , , (all three without hosting) who I want to point to

Before I bought the extra domains I asked the provider if I could point the extra domains to the “head” domain (
Yes, that was possible they said so I bought the extra domains.
I asked the provider to help with the configuration to point them to the head domain but they refused, I must do it by myself……………………..
There is no possibility they do it when I pay extra for it so I feel pressed to take also a hosting for the extra domains; then I can make a redirect on each index page.

All domain names have an own DNS control panel. I have full access to this.

The first picture is the DNS from the head domain.

The second picture is the DNS from one of the extra domains I want to point to the head domain.

What must I put where so the website from will appear when I write in the browser?
THANKS in advance!!!

(Sorry for my bad English, I’m Dutch)

Domain Name Server DNS Cluster

Jul 27, 2006

I´m running 4 servers on a cpanel - dns - cluster.

- 1 running cpanel (srv01)
- 3 running cpanel-dns-only (cluster01 - cluster03)

My DNS config is:

srv01 -
cluster01 -

I ´ve setup on srv01:
- cluster01 (synchronize changes)
- cluster02 (standalone)
- cluster03 (standalone)

On cluster01:
- srv01 (synchronize changes)
- cluster02 (standalone)
- cluster03 (standalone)

And on cluster02 and cluster03, I did something like that:
- srv01 (synchronize changes)
- cluster01 (synchronize changes)
- cluster03 (standalone)
- srv01 (synchronize changes)
- cluster01 (synchronize changes)
- cluster02 (standalone)

1. So, is that correct?

2. It seems that when I click on 'syncronize all DNS records on all the servers' only cluster01 and srv01 got all the DNS records. So is it normal?

Yet If I add a domain on cluster02 for example, where I need to add the DNS? cluster02 named.conf or on cluster01/srv01?

Domain Name Server (DNS) Hosting On A VPS

Sep 17, 2007

I need to make a dns hosting for a client of mine. He will change his domain name nameservers to point to my server.

His website is hosted on another hosting company. On my server I will create all the necessary CNAME and A records to point www on the server of the other company.

My problem is with the MX records though. Because my client owns a local mailserver, (I think it's MS Exchange server) I need to create a primary MX record to deliver all the mails to that mailserver. No problem till here.. But he also needs a secondary MX record in case his mailserver is inaccessible ,so all the mails have to be queued on my VPS and when his mailserver is accessible again to deliver all the mails.

Any idea of how I can configure my dns zones for that?

Domain Name Server (DNS) Changes With Subdomains

Aug 6, 2007

I currently have shared hosting, but am getting VPS with another company. I'd like to keep my domains on my original hosting and direct the domains to the new server. I've been reading and it doesn't seem that hard to change for a regular domain. The problem is I don't seem to understand how to do the same for a subdomain. I keep reading about the A record and CNAME, but just don't get it.

Does anyone have any experience with this. Do I just put the IP address for the new server in the A record? I just want to make sure I know what's going on before I order my new hosting and find out it's not possible or something.

I'm also curious if mail, like will continue to work. Or is there something I need to change for this as well.
