VPS and DNS Setup - Newbie question
I run several sites, and instead of paying for several webhosts, i decided to go for a VPS.
I have a VPS running CentOS and Direct Admin. The VPS has 1 ip assigned to it.
I have done the following: (for testing purposes, i currently only have on IP, but I plan on "renting" another one over the next couple of days once I have all my issues figured out)
- My domain registered at godaddy has had two nameservers registered, NS1 and NS2 pointing at the IP Address of the VPS.
- My domain has it's nameservers set to the NS1 and NS2 I created.
The problem I am seeing now is that when i Ping NS1 and NS2, it does not resolve. Any domain that has it's nameservers set to these nameservers do not work either.
any help here would be much appreciated!
you need 2 IP's for private dns AFAIK, e.g
ns1.dot.com would resolve to XXX.XXX.XXX.XX1
ns2.dot.com would resolve to XXX.XXX.XXX.XX2
In DirectAdmin, for the DNS records you have for your domain, check that you have "A" records for NS1 and NS2.

And FH-VM is correct -- you CAN have a VPS where both nameservers point to the same IP.

Yes I forgot to mention that you need to add them as host in godaddy.

Thank you for your advice so far. One of the issues was that the DNS Service (named) was not kicked off, and had to manually start that up.
Currently I am having some issues still. When i go to MYDOMAIN, I get a webpage that gives me the following message: Apache is functioning normally
When i go to directly to the directory: IPADDRESS/~iluvmusic the website shows up fine.
I am guessing I am still missing something in my directadmin or setup.
Any further ideas?
