    UK2 Dedicated server nameserver setup

    I have just got a new dedicated server from UK2, running directadmin.

    I 'am having problems getting externally registered domains (unipay.co.uk with reg-123.co.uk) to work on the server.

    Truthfully I'm quite new to the dedicated server route, however one of the sites i'm just launching demands it, possibly more than 1, so I don't have much choice.

    Anyways, this is what I've tried,
    Ive setup the nameservers via the reg-123.co.uk control panel to ns1.uk2net.com and ns2.uk2net.com

    and then added the domain in directadmin under the user admin,

    Do I have to setup the server as a nameserver also to host domains not registered via uk2, if so how is this done?!?

    Everything I've tried so far has come to a dead end, any suggestions welcome,

    Thanks,
    Mat

    1. check if your domain is enabled as a nameserver with opensrs (your domain provider)
    2. check firewall on DNS ports (like titandesign says) 53 tcp/udp ports
    3. check if bind is restarting after DNS zone changes
    4. wait for domain name replication, if you´ve added the domain an pointed out to your server so it should be working in a few ours depends basically on our register, (with enom I get 20 minutes of replication time)

    good luck
