    Hello everybody,

    I am trying to set up DNS server on my VPS that I recently bought,
    It's my first time configuring bind, and I am not an advanced Linux user.

    I've managed to get as far as :

    Code:
    [root@server]# /etc/init.d/named restart
    Stopping named: .                                          [  OK  ]
    Starting named:                                            [  OK  ]
    I get no configuration errors.

    The problem is my domain name which I bought doesn't translate to that server.

    I've set the right nameservers given to me by the hosting provider in my godday account


    But it still will not resolve.


    Here are configurations:

    named.conf
    Code:
    include "/etc/rndc.key";
    
    controls {
    inet 127.0.0.1 allow { localhost; } keys { "rndc-key"; };
    };
    
    options {
    /* make named use port 53 for the source of all queries, to allow
    * firewalls to block all ports except 53:
    */
    
    // query-source port 53;
    
    /* We no longer enable this by default as the dns posion exploit
    has forced many providers to open up their firewalls a bit */
    
    // Put files that named is allowed to write in the data/ directory:
    directory "/var/named"; // the default
    pid-file "/var/run/named/named.pid";
    dump-file "data/cache_dump.db";
    statistics-file "data/named_stats.txt";
    /* memstatistics-file "data/named_mem_stats.txt"; */
    allow-transfer {"none";};
    };
    
    logging {
    /* If you want to enable debugging, eg. using the 'rndc trace' command,
    * named will try to write the 'named.run' file in the $directory (/var/named").
    * By default, SELinux policy does not allow named to modify the /var/named" directory,
    * so put the default debug log file in data/ :
    */
    channel default_debug {
    file "data/named.run";
    severity dynamic;
    };
    };
    
    
    // All BIND 9 zones are in a "view", which allow different zones to be served
    // to different types of client addresses, and for options to be set for groups
    // of zones.
    //
    // By default, if named.conf contains no "view" clauses, all zones are in the
    // "default" view, which matches all clients.
    //
    // If named.conf contains any "view" clause, then all zones MUST be in a view;
    // so it is recommended to start off using views to avoid having to restructure
    // your configuration files in the future.
    
    view "localhost_resolver" {
    /* This view sets up named to be a localhost resolver ( caching only nameserver ).
    * If all you want is a caching-only nameserver, then you need only define this view:
    */
    match-clients { 127.0.0.0/24; };
    match-destinations { localhost; };
    recursion yes;
    
    zone "." IN {
    type hint;
    file "/var/named/named.ca";
    };
    
    /* these are zones that contain definitions for all the localhost
    * names and addresses, as recommended in RFC1912 - these names should
    * ONLY be served to localhost clients:
    */
    include "/var/named/named.rfc1912.zones";
    };
    
    view "internal" {
    /* This view will contain zones you want to serve only to "internal" clients
    that connect via your directly attached LAN interfaces - "localnets" .
    */
    match-clients { localnets; };
    match-destinations { localnets; };
    recursion yes;
    
    zone "." IN {
    type hint;
    file "/var/named/named.ca";
    };
    
    // include "/var/named/named.rfc1912.zones";
    // you should not serve your rfc1912 names to non-localhost clients.
    
    // These are your "authoritative" internal zones, and would probably
    // also be included in the "localhost_resolver" view above :
    
    zone "mydomain.com" {
    type master;
    file "/var/named/mydomain.com.hosts";
    };
    
    
    };
    
    view "external" {
    /* This view will contain zones you want to serve only to "external" clients
    * that have addresses that are not on your directly attached LAN interface subnets:
    */
    recursion no;
    // you'd probably want to deny recursion to external clients, so you don't
    // end up providing free DNS service to all takers
    
    // all views must contain the root hints zone:
    zone "." IN {
    type hint;
    file "/var/named/named.ca";
    };
    
    // These are your "authoritative" external zones, and would probably
    // contain entries for just your web and mail servers:
    
    // BEGIN external zone entries
    
    
    zone "mydomain.com" {
    type master;
    file "/var/named/mydomain.hosts";
    };
    };
    
    mydomain.hosts
    Code:
    $ttl 38400
    mydomain.com.	IN	SOA	mydomain.com.    master.mydomain.com. (
    			1332074464	; Serial
    			10800		; Refresh
    			3600		; Retry
    			604800		; Expire
    			38400 )		; Minmun
    
    ;	Define the Nameservers and the mail servers
    
    		IN	NS	ns1.hosting-nameserver.com.ua.
    		IN	NS	ns2.hosting-nameserver.com.ua.
    		IN	MX	10 mx1.hosting-mainserver.com.ua.
    

    I've installed http://www.webmin.com/

    And When I try to start BIND from there, it doesn't start.

    I've sent hours and hours on this :mad:,
    hope some people can help.

    Thanks.

    Did you check your domain on www.intodns.com?

    What are the outputs of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    and
    Code:
    netstat -uap
    ? Are there any BIND errors in your logs? Is your BIND server authoritative for your domain?
