I purchased a domain at and tried it DNS and getting lots of errors and finally change my nameservers to my server DNS i.e. NS101.VPSLAND.COM and NS202.VPSLAND.COM and created a domain in my plesk panel (Marked DNS & Mail required). After adding my domain to my plesk panel of my server I opened DNS records of that domain and found DNS records are automatically generated to my needs as following / 24   PTR    CNAME  CNAME   A  A A    A    NS    A    MX (10)    A    CNAME

Finally I waited for a week for I am unable to use my domain. Also in DNS lookup I cannot find any records to my Server except name servers of VPSland. Do I need to add VPSland namesevers anywhere in Plesk panel? If so where? Can anyone assist me where the mistake is?...

NS101.VPSLAND.COM and NS202.VPSLAND.COM don't report that they are name servers for You need to configure both to be authoratative for your domain.

Your problem is the domain isn't found on the nameservers

$ nslookup NS101.VPSLAND.COM
Server:     NS101.VPSLAND.COM
