Hope this is the appropriate forum to post to. I was just wondering how long it might take for my custom DNS that was set-up to populate? The main domain resolves and I am even able to ping both name servers from my connection at work and at home.
The problem I am having is trying to change my domains to those of my custom DNS. I have this problem with NetSol and GoDaddy. Since I am unable to put in the IP address I have to rely on the name only. I get an error from both registers. I can use the host's branded servers, but not mine.
It has only been ~48 hours since I registered the domain so I know I have to wait a day or two more, but after a week or so if it does not work what might need to do?
It has been a week all ready. I found out my problem. I needed to add the NS and IP with my register. NetSol and Godaddy don't make it easy, but I found out that both can be done. You can not just change your NS without first adding the name and IP somewhere in your registers GUI.
If I can ping both all should be set on the host side. My bad for posting this. My mistake, but at least others might be able to seach for this same problem.
