DNS problems

August 1, 2013 4.6k views
Hi, In the past days I successfully configure my vanity Host Names. Yesterday after few days I enter to my webpage and I see that I can't enter, I check the NS, and from Mexico (where I live) and it resolve to my droplet, and from my droplet on (NY1) it can't resolve. But it's weird, because cuponice.com,.net,.org,com.mx,.mx,.biz, etc... are to ns1.noticiasgam.com & ns2.noticiasgam.com and only cuponice.com & .net works the other doesn't work (have the same NS). I already check with support with digital ocean and they said that because I have my own hostname they can't help too much because I need to configure it. Also I talk with Godaddy support and they help me checking the NS configuration and they said me that are correctly configure, they recommend me to reset my DNS zone file. I already destroy the DNS and do it again and it doesn't work. Any ideas? I have installed CentOS, with VPS cPanel. My hostname its s1.noticiasgam.com

This is yours name servers:
Domain ID:D165892632-LROR

This is not DigitalOcean. Check your domain settings.

Hi nightflash, no because I want vanity name servers

Hi Pablo I just change it and do it like the guide Vanity Nameservers, but now my problem it's that cpanel detect the domain to digital ocean IP and my server IP it's different, so I can't park domains, cpanel said me that the domain it's on another server. The only way to solve this it's with branded name servers right?

This has come up before, but I can't find the thread right now. Try typing the following into your web browser (or Google):
cpanel nameserver site:digitalocean.com

and search through the various old threads; and you should (hopefully) find the workaround.
If you want to use cPanel, you have to use your own nameservers. See "Branded nameservers": https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-create-vanity-or-branded-nameservers-with-digitalocean-cloud-servers

You don't need two VPSes, just use the same IP address for ns1 and ns2.

Have you tried, this?
  1. Logon to WHM;
  2. Select Tweak Settings under Server Setup;
  3. Put checkboxes next to both: Allow Creation of Parked/Addon Domains that are not registered;
  4. Allow Creation of Parked/Addon Domains that resolve to other servers (ie domain transfers);
[This can be a major security problem. If you must have it enabled, be sure to not allow users to park common internet domains.]
