The issue is that I am unable to nslookup/ping any domains I setup in the data file for TinyDNS. I have 2 name servers registered through my domain registrar to ns1.minecraft-cheats.com and ns2.minecraft-cheats.com with 2 IP addresses pointing to the same server (the server with the TinyDNS on it). Here is the layout of my /var/dnscache/tinydns/root/data file:
Zminecraft-cheats.com:ns1.minecraft-cheats.com:2011070501:4800:1800:604800 &minecraft-cheats.com:18.104.22.168:ns1.minecraft-cheats.com:3600 &minecraft-cheats.com:22.214.171.124:ns2.minecraft-cheats.com:3600 =minecraft-cheats.com:126.96.36.199 =www.minecraft-cheats.com:188.8.131.52
When I use dig on the domain here is the results:
[root@ip-184-168-110-107 root]# dig minecraft-cheats.com ; <<>> DiG 9.3.6-P1-RedHat-9.3.6-4.P1.el5_5.3 <<>> minecraft-cheats.com ;; global options: printcmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 62345 ;; flags: qr aa rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 2, ADDITIONAL: 2 ;; QUESTION SECTION: ;minecraft-cheats.com.

I am aware it isn't very safe to post the real IP and domain name but I really don't care right now.
When I edit the data file I am running 'make' and then restarting the TinyDNS service.
Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? Yes, I have waited hours for propagation to occur so I do not think that is the issue at the moment.
