DNS set up question

OK, I have a VPS and have set up a nameserver and got it running. Now I have registered with godaddy. I'm then having trouble changing DNS at godaddy from their parking name servers to mine. Is there something I need to do so godaddy knows I have a and Thanks!

If it's already resolved, godaddy won't complain when you are adding the nameservers. If it's a newly registered nameservers from another domain registrar, allow some times for dns propagation.

You generally need to "register" your name server IP's. Although without more information on the problem thee is very little we can do for you.

Are there any error messages at all?

Have you tried contacting GoDaddy support? Remember you gave them money, don't be scared to use their resources.

When I try to update my domain name at godaddy with my IP address I get the following error. ( Error: pendmod: (550) Parent domain not registered; )

It looks like my DNS is up and running I can do an nslookup myname and it resolves it.

If you do a nslookup in local machine where the dns server is being run at, of course it would resolve, locally.

If you register the domain name at Godaddy, you also need to register your nameservers with Godaddy. This does not mean you need to purchase the nameserver domain name. You can simply login to your domain control panel at Godaddy, and register your nameservers for free. Read their documentation for more information.

Once it is registered, you can use the nameservers for all your domain name.

Check your nameservers to see if it's registered at:
