There are a couple of issues, the first is that your DNS servers aren't working :

$ nslookup
> server 198.211.123.197
Default server: 198.211.123.197
Address: 198.211.123.197#53
> so-l.net
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

You should review your /var/log/messages and other error logs to see why NAMED/BIND isn't starting. If there is a config error it will be displayed there and you can troubleshoot.

The second is that your domain isn't pointed to the nameservers you specified, which is ok for now, since your DNS servers aren't yet responding correctly:

Domain Name: SO-L.NET
Registrar: GODADDY.COM, LLC
Whois Server: whois.godaddy.com
Referral URL: http://registrar.godaddy.com
Name Server: NS19.SUPERDNSSITE.COM
Name Server: NS20.SUPERDNSSITE.COM
