I have a dedicated server from Valueweb, and I'm having a hard time setting up a sub-domain.
Well, I set it up fine, but the sub domain is inaccesable. Why is this??
My control panel tells me that the install of the subdomain was successful, and I can FTP to it just fine. It's just that when I enter it into my browser, I get an error page that says improper DNS. I thought you didn't have to mess with DNS settings for a subdomain. PLEASE help!!
whe you say improper DNS, what is the exact message, remember that a sub domain has to resolve just as any other, have you given it time to do so. It is usually quite quick but sometimes it cn take a while.
A little case study. When on VDS, i had several subdomains that refused to resolve two weeks, or resolved interchangingly (from different providers) and temporary (in various intervals).
This case was resolved by updating all DNS zones after any change to any zone (cumbersome, yea), and now it seems to me that the problem was in the different nameservers (pointing to one an the same IP) used on my DNS server, the registrar's one and the provider's (recorded with different TTL).
After changing to dedicated server, the first thing I did was to unify all nameservers of the sites everywhere and all technical values. I got much help from the www.dnsreport.com
