I have domain registered with godaddy. I had set up custom hostname on godaddy and used same nameservers for the domain. ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com (both hostnames are pointing to same ip)

Now I had configured my server with Centos 7 and centos web panel. Below are data of few files which is necessary for setting up DNS. The problem is with DNS that nameserver is not working. Please help me solve this issue. IP: 142.54.176.130 and Domain: getfreereallikes.com

  • Your /etc/resolv.conf is mostly irrelevant here. You should indeed as you show always use dig with the @ flag to query a specific nameserver. – Patrick Mevzek May 2 at 19:08
  • Two tools that can be useful also: named-checkconf to check your whole configuration, and named-checkzone to test a specific zone, and make sure its content is ok. – Patrick Mevzek May 2 at 19:09

You set up an authoritative only name server by disabling recursion with recursion no;

That means that your name server will only respond to queries for the domain names it considers itself authoritative.
That is a good thing!

The only domain names, "zones" in bind jargon, that you declare are:

zone "ns1.getfreereallikes.com" ...
zone "ns2.getfreereallikes.com" ...

Therefor a query for www.getfreereallikes.com will be refused as that is not a domain hosted by your name server.


You probably don't need separate zone files for ns[1-2].getfreereallikes.com and your intended config should probably be:

zone "getfreereallikes.com" {type master;file "/var/named/getfreereallikes.com.db";};

  • @user521817 Please post your updates inside your first post not as comments, with full details (did you change the zonefile path? Did you restart bind? etc.). Also "both hostnames are pointing to same ip" is not a good idea. Are you absolutely sure you need to handle the DNS service for your domain? Why not use a specialized provider for that (either your registrar or a third pary) as it seems you are starting on that and hence playing with production zones is not a good idea, you should try to start learning on local toy zones to understand how the DNS and bind work. – Patrick Mevzek May 2 at 19:06
  • @user521817 Also did you look at your logfile? REFUSED from the nameserver clearly means it will not process the request, based on its current configuration. This should be marked in the logfile with some extra data that could help you. Note that your title is wrong, the nameserver DO reply, just with return code REFUSED. It is different from a server not replying at all (timeout) or a nameserver not reachable (refused connection at the IP level). I edited it. – Patrick Mevzek May 2 at 19:07
