I am in the process of moving from a linux webserver to a new Windows webserver, and I have been having trouble getting one of my sites to update and resolve to the new web server. To be honest I dont think I fully understand how DNS works. Below is my configuration, if you can provide pointers on how this should be configured to work correctly, then that would be great.
I have the domain mydomain.com, registered through Othello technologies. This is configured to use ns1.myname.com / ns2.myname.com, which is then registered through SimplyNames. I have configured ns1 / ns2 to resolve to the IP address of my new server, (registered through Webfusion) and indeed accessing ns1.myname.com in the web browser takes you to the correct web server. However, accessing mydomain.com still resolves to the old server.
I appreciate you cannot troubleshoot the problem from this information, but instead I would like to know how exactly each step should be set up in terms of NS/A records in order to correctly resolve in a situation where 3 different companies are used for registering and hosting the domains.
The Webserver is a Windows 2008 Server running plesk 10. Are there any additional configuration changes that need to be made in here in order to configure the server to run as a nameserver?
