    subdomains not resolving??

    excuse me for coming off as a newb, but none of the subdomains on my site are resolving - even one that is the 'domain' for a CPanel account. do you mind taking a look at the dns and pointing out anything that might be wrong (i added them through CPanel)?

    also i should note that i don't think it's a propogation issue since the subdomains were in the zone before i pointed the domain to the appropriate nameservers. and when i did point the domain, it took minutes for it to propogate - which astounded me.

    here is the file (where 'abc' is my domain and '0.0.0.0' is my site's IP):

    Code:
    ; Zone File for abc.com
    $TTL 14400
    @       14440   IN      SOA     ns1.abc.com.   webmaster.abc.$
                                            2005053111
                                            14400
                                            7200
                                            3600000
                                            86400
                                            )
    
    abc.com.       14400   IN      NS      ns1.abc.com.
    abc.com.       14400   IN      NS      ns2.abc.com.
    
    abc.com.       14400   IN      A       0.0.0.0
    
    
    
    localhost.abc.com.     14400   IN      A       127.0.0.1
    
    abc.com.       14400   IN      MX      0       abc.com.
    
    mail    14400   IN      CNAME   abc.com.
    www     14400   IN      CNAME   abc.com.
    *       14400   IN      CNAME   abc.com.
    
    ftp.    14400   IN      A       0.0.0.0
    
    
    ns1.    14400   IN      A       0.0.0.0
    ns2.    14400   IN      A       0.0.0.0
    
    server1 14400   IN      A       0.0.0.0
    sub1    14400   IN      A       0.0.0.0
    www.sub1        14400   IN      A       0.0.0.0
    sub2       14400   IN      A       0.0.0.0
    www.sub2   14400   IN      A       0.0.0.0
    sub3     14400   IN      A       0.0.0.0
    www.sub3 14400   IN      A       0.0.0.0
    sorry if it's difficult to read... does anyone see something wrong? what else could cause this to happen?

    thanks!

    p.s. - www, server1, and mail all work correctly -- even before i added the wildcard CNAME entry.

    www worked before you added the cname entry... hmmm. Are you sure you're modifying the correct DNS server?

    try www.dnsreport.com to see what it says.
