I have some doubts about the DNS setup for mydomain I have a domain, which I'm not using yet, but is active I have a subdomain off this which i am using, the website 'seems' to be working ok Google picks it up, Bing does now, but took a while, 3 weeks approx
Reasons for doubts:- I've tried checking the subdomain at various sites, most of them say that there is a problem. @ http://www.dnssy.com i get the following:-
NS records at parent nameserver: Your NS records at your parent nameserver are: Provided by a.gtld-servers.net -> nameserver1 .............. Info
Nameservers listed at parent: No nameservers found at parent nameserver. ..........Fail
I've tried mail.google.com and get the same results, So my 1st thoughts were this must be ok. But now i have my doubts. Also email client only works when set to IMAP, does not work with POP3, tried various clients. also is very slow, with both domain & subdomain
My DNS from WHM is as follows
mydomain.com 86400 in SOA nameserver1. mydomain.com 86400 in NS nameserver1. mydomain.com 86400 in NS nameserver2. mydomain.com 14400 in A 188.8.131.52 localhost in A 184.108.40.206 mydomain.com in MX 0 mail.mydomain.com. mail in A 220.127.116.11 www in CNAME mydomain.com. ftp in A 18.104.22.168 mydomain.com in TXT "v=s******************" default_domainkey in TXT "v=D**********verylongcode" server in CNAME mydomain.com. webmail in A 22.214.171.124 mysubdomain in A 126.96.36.199 www.mysubdomain in A 188.8.131.52 default_domainkey.mysubdomain TXT "v=D**********anotherverylongcode" mysubdomain in TXT "v=s******************" Long hex number in CNAME verify.bing.com
Email Routing is set to Auto detect config: Local
i'm scared of changing anything in the DNS due to lack of knowledge and importance of DNS and cannot see any solutions for this on stack overflow or any other site
My questions are:- a) Do i need to add an entry to point the subdomain directly at the nameservers? ie
mysubdomain in NS nameserver1 (& 2)
b)Is there a problem or something missing from the DNS that will cause the email problems. c) Can someone give my DNS a 'health check' please.
Very grateful for any help with the above.
