I've registered domain: denisit.net

In the registrar's setting I pointed that name servers are

ns0.xname.org ns1.xname.org

At xname.org, I created A record for the domen:

denisit.net. IN A

After 24h I can't resolve any of my domains.

It seems like servers have not renewed records. What am I doing wrong?


dig denisit.net reveals a SERVFAIL. Although a whois lookup reveals, xname's nameservers, it looks like none of the records are served.

Can you try an alternate DNS hosting service like pointhq or zerigo ? Both of them have free plans.

  • I'll try to and public results. Thx. – Dennis Mar 14 '12 at 9:13

Actually, there is no answer for NS for this zone :

$ host -t NS denisit.net
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

So your registrar didn't active your zone in his DNS. In addition, xname servers didn't know denisit.net.

$ host -t NS denisit.net. ns0.xname.org
Using domain server:
Name: ns0.xname.org

denisit.net has no NS record

So double check your configuration, there is a problem on both sides !

  • It seems like I missunderstand something: $ dig denisit.net +trace denisit.net. 172800 IN NS ns0.xname.org. denisit.net. 172800 IN NS ns1.xname.org. it looks like NS answer is correct? – Dennis Mar 14 '12 at 9:04
  • This might also help you to understand: intodns.com/denisit.net – Ladadadada Mar 14 '12 at 9:19

XName DNS-hosting died, unfortunately

Even when their NSes online, servers don't reload zones on change,e-mails did produce any reaction.

When I was thinking about moving I selected between DNSHat & DNSexit, use now DNSexit (4 NSes, zones reloaded in minutes after change, SOA not editable, format of serial doesn't follow standard de-facto). DNSHat leave still not tried
