Hi Milleman,

Before doing the stuff below, add A records for your name servers:

A    ns1    123.456.789.12
A    ns2    123.456.789.12
If that doesn't work, try this....

Even though you setup DNS records, you still have to setup your glue records with your registrar. is registered with someone, so go to that someone and make sure you set this for

Name Servers:

Also, the ns1 and ns2 servers must be available publicly, which means they will have some IP that can be seen by other external computers.

If your name servers are not on the Internet, check out They provide name server services at no charge.

My guess is that's your problem, since you can reach them via IP ping.
