Hi Falko,

Do be honest with you, I now realize that I know FAR less about DNS than I thought I did. I believe it had something to do with the host companies making it easy on even those using VDS. The bottom line is that I want my clients to do what they currently do with my host reseller. They simple point their nameservers to mine, and the rest is handled on my end and my end alone. No need to deal with the domain registrars DNS EVER again. Only my nameservers, only my DNS. Here is the output of the command line you asked about (which shows one of Googles Global DNS, which is a good sign - even though it doesn't work!)
