I recently switched hosts which also switched my IP. The transition went perfectly except for DNS. DNS, also known as "black magic" has become my biggest PITA. Background: -I have a wildcard record for ns1.example.com and ns2.example.com. -All my domains (except one) use those two nameservers What I have done: -Setup Bind on new server with dupe config and zone files (pointing to the new IP) -changed all the IPs in the old zones to point to the new IP I thought that'd do it (not knowing anything) but it didn't. Since then I've been trying one thing after another to try to get it to work. -I added allow-transfer to named.conf for each IP. -I updated the serial in the zone files -I've drank lots of beer hoping that I would knock myself out long enough to have the problem fix itself All my sites remained reachable through the old DNS servers pointing to the new IP with the exception of my .net domains. My .nets went down completely and I had to go back to using my registrars DNS servers and manually point them to my IP. They were returning NXDOMAIN...? Posting here is my last resort and any help would be much appreciated. Since this would save me on two hosting bills I would be willing to throw a few US dollars your way... i know they're not worth what they used to be but c'mon. Thanks.
