    Check tells me
    zone NS '' has no address records (A or AAAA)
    zone not loaded due to errors.
    But the are at least two A records on for domain. itself and another for www, as you can sie in teh copy of the file above.
    Again, I have 8 other Domains running fine on the same primary and secondary nameservers, some of them I added or modified A records in the last days successfully. The problem startet when I tried to modify A Records, after that went wron multiple times I deleted the domain an recreated it, sam Problem.
    Thanks for help

    When the NS records are a subdomain of the zone itself, then these ns records must exist as A-records in the zone. so when you have the domain with and as DNS server, then you must add ns1 and ns2 as a-record too.

    But in your case, the problem is different. You missed adding a dot at the end of "" in the first NS record and you missed adding a dot in the data section of the second NS record "".

    without these dots, the name is treated as a subdomain of the current zone.

    Oh thanks a lot, yes these Dots, I checked twice but oversaw the missing dots when recreating the domain. That does not explain the primary problem, not being able to modify the IP addresses of www and The domain exists sind min 6 years and worked fine all the time. But do not think about as ist works now. "You must not unterstand everything in the computer world" :)
    Thanks again
