I am new to the whole DNS things but this is what I have done so far.

I have setup a master zone using Bind DNS and I am using zonomi.com to host my salve zone.

Following zonomi's documentation I have created two name servers on my primary zone which are as below:

  1. ns1.abc.com //pointed to my VPS server
  2. ns2.abc.com //pointed to zonomi's name server

But still I get an error message in zonomi's control panel saying that I am not using their name servers. I have also updated my domain to use these name servers. But can't figure out what I am doing wrong here..

Thanks for your help in advance.


If you want to use "vanity" names, create CNAME records for gandalf.example.com that point to realname.example.com. Don't mess with the way DNS works.
