ping so-l.net Unknown host: so-l.net

};

logging { channel default_debug { file “data/named.run”; severity dynamic; }; };

zone “.” IN { type hint; file “named.ca”; };

include “/etc/named.rfc1912.zones”; include “/etc/named.root.key”;

server 198.211.123.197 { }; zone “so-l.net” { type master; file “/var/named/so-l.net.hosts”; };


here is /var/named/so-l.net.hosts:

There are a couple of issues, the first is that your DNS servers aren’t working : <br> <br>$ nslookup <br>> server 198.211.123.197 <br>Default server: 198.211.123.197 <br>Address: 198.211.123.197#53 <br>> so-l.net <br>;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached <br> <br>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. <br> <br>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: <br> <br> Domain Name: SO-L.NET <br> Registrar: GODADDY.COM, LLC <br> Whois Server: whois.godaddy.com <br> Referral URL: http://registrar.godaddy.com <br> Name Server: NS19.SUPERDNSSITE.COM <br> Name Server: NS20.SUPERDNSSITE.COM <br>
