Hi, thanks for the quick reply.

DNS is handled through the Linode DNS control panel, so on the box, as it were.

The 'any' request outputs this:
Code:
dig example.com @109.74.192.20 any

; <<>> DiG 9.8.1-P1 <<>> example.com @109.74.192.20 any
;; global options: +cmd

(I've replaced the sites domain name with example)

The 'mx' request outputs:
Code:
dig example.com @109.74.192.20 mx

I also did the same for the FQDN, which uses a separate domain, 'any':
Code:
; <<>> DiG 9.8.1-P1 <<>> server1.mydomain.co.uk @109.74.192.20 any
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;server1.mydomain.co.uk.	IN	ANY

;; ANSWER SECTION:
server1.mydomain.co.uk. 86400 IN	A	178.79.180.209

;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
mydomain.co.uk.	86400	IN	NS	ns2.linode.com.
mydomain.co.uk.	86400	IN	NS	ns1.linode.com.

mydomain.co.uk.	86400	IN	NS	ns4.linode.com.
mydomain.co.uk.	86400	IN	NS	ns3.linode.com.

FQDN 'mx':
Code:

I don't really understand the output of these, but I'm not seeing anything that screams out at me as a blatant error?
