Hi all, I am having a problem with a friend's domain I am hosting on my new dedicated server. I'm just wanting to see if I'm missing somthing in setting things up. Here are the pertinant details:
I recenlty purchased (leased actually) a dedicated server which uses CPanel (which I'm also new to). I have a number of domains myself registered through Dotster. Lets call my main domain "mydomain1.com" and others "mydomain2.com," "mydomain3.com," etc... My main IP address is like XX.XX.XX.X10
So I set up name servers as follows:
NS1.mydomain1.com IP: XX.XX.XX.X11 and
NS2.mydomain1.com IP: XX.XX.XX.X12
I registered these name servers with Dotster by going to my main domain and selecting "register nameserver" then I entered the above info and it said registration was completed successfully. I then added these two domain name servers to all my domains.
I also am hosting a friends domain on my server. Lets call his domain "myfriendsdomain.com" His domain is also registered with Dotster and he added my nameservers to his dotster account for his domain. Everything seems to be working fine for me, but for my friend, he has trouble getting to his web site at "myfriendsdomain.com" Sometimes, if he goes to http://www.myfriendsdomain.com he gets "Unable to Open Page", but if he leaves off the "www" and just goes to http://myfriendsdomain.com his page opens ok.
In setting up domains and nameservers, is there anything I may have left out that might be causing this problem? Why would he be able to get there one minute and not the next? And why would leaving off www. make a difference. We have tried different browsers with im and cleared cahce, deleted temp internet files, etc., but the issue persists. I'm just wondering if there is something I may be overlooking in setting up the nameservers? (Or somethign else)?
