Reverse DNS entries for MX records

You need to setup Reverse DNS for your IP. Like 103.230.57.65.in-addr.arpa vortechhosting.com.

How do I fix

NS.HOSTINWORLD7.COM.
NS2.HOSTINWORLD7.COM.

NS

You don't have name server records for
NS.HOSTINWORLD7.COM.
NS2.HOSTINWORLD7.COM.


Thats what it is telling you.. In your dns you can make a NS Record like this

NS.HOSTINWORLD7.COM. = 127.0.0.1
NS2.HOSTINWORLD7.COM. = 127.0.0.2

Its not an A record but an NS record not sure how you do that in Plesk it should of done ti for you i think

Lame nameservers ERROR: You have one or more lame nameservers. These are nameservers that do NOT answer authoritatively for your domain. This is bad; for example, these nameservers may never get updated. The following nameservers are lame:
207.218.xxx.xx


I am lame haha

Blah, it warns me about stuff that doesn't even matter. I have reasons for setting the TTL to 5 minutes.
