    Can you ping any other domain from that system?
    If not your network setup is incorrect

    It looks like your nameserver (DNS) is not set.
    You will need to add a working nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf

    Try using the one from your provider.

    resolv.conf should look something like this
    xx.xx.xx.xx should be an IP from a working nameserver

    When all is done ok, you should be able to ping, and update

    ive done this,

    when i goto my conf file i get this info

    nameserver 208.XX.233.53
    search 208.XX.233.53 localdomain

    should i change the second line also?

    you're nameserver is probably down or not responding to queries .. anyway, change it to another ip (or add one).

    you could add some free ns servers

    the "search.." line is optional

    hi, mark,

    i have changed my NS back to my IP and it is still not working, i have also enabled Bind Dns Server in hyperVM as it was disabled

    i also noticed when i login to SSH it used to show my IP it shows my old domain name

    [email protected] ~]# wget

    it USED to show

    [email protected] ~]# wget

    ive also uninstalled Webmin as it WAS installed and i was able to wget ..

    [email protected].233.53 .... and .. nameserver 208.XX.233.53

    so you got yourself as dns server? What are the forwarding nameservers?
    If your server can't find an ip, it'll use the forwarders, if none specified, no ip will be found ..

    just set resolv.conf like this:
    nameserver YOUR_ISP_NAMESERVER

    that's it, not your own ip, just the isp's ..

    hehe, i've never said DHCP :)

    Anyway, the problem that exists now is that your server can't resolv a hostname (f.e. to an IP address .. that's when DNS servers come in.

    can you output the content of:
    - /etc/resolv.conf
    - /etc/hosts
    - ifconfig

    and paste them in your reply.

    Also: What ISP is your server connected to? Or is your server located in a datacenter? if so, what's the name of the datacenter?

    search localdomain

    oke it's what i expected ;-)

    Your nameservers are:

    Service FQDN IP Address
    DNS Server #1
    DNS Server #2
    DNS Server #3
    DNS Server #4

    open /etc/resolv.conf and make it look like this (remove the "search" line):
    then ping f.e.

    should do the trick

    Well, if you can ping (which is the DNS server, then you should be able to ping other things as well).

    try this:


    if you don't have that cmd, try:

    [[email protected] ~]# host
    Using domain server:
    Aliases: is an alias for has address has address has address has address
