    Nameserver Problem

    I currently have two reseller accounts:

    1) Onshore with iFuse hosting
    2) Offshore with The Peak Host

    For the onshore hosting I always used to use the nameservers ns1.superwebhosting.co.uk & ns2.superwebhosting.co.uk and that worked perfectly fine. Now that I recently bought offshore hosting I wanted to use the nameservers ns3.superwebhosting.co.uk & ns4.superwebhosting.co.uk

    To get these nameservers to point to their respective reseller accounts I put all the nameservers with their ips onto the domain superwebhosting.co.uk but now that has made the domain use the nameservers ns3 and ns4 but I want it to use the nameservers ns1 and ns2

    Any solutions to fix this problem would be appreciated!

    You need to add A-Records to the domain not NS records and you need to set up additional child nameservers at your registrar.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Sorry I'm a bit of a newbie to domains. Could you explain how to do that or provide me with some good links please?

    You would have to login to the domain registra basically where you registered that domain at, then go to nameserv registration, setup the ns3, ns4 , etc and aim to the ip's you wish, you then have to lgin to the hosting end of your account for that domain and add A records!

    Yeah I got my host to do that for me. The only problem that remains now is that I have four nameservers on my superwebhosting.co.uk domain and instead of it using the ns1. and ns2. nameservers it uses the ns3. and ns4. nameservers hence not displaying my website

    So go to your domain registrar and remove the ns3 an and ns4 nameservers from the domain.

    Ok that's easy enough but how do make the ns3 and ns4 nameservers point to my reseller? By the way I'm using 123-reg if that helps

    I queried the DNS Servers for your domain and I see that you have it set up on ns3 and ns4 - you need to go to your domain registrar and change it back to ns1 and ns2.

    Code:
    [email protected] [~]# dig superwebhosting.co.uk
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.4.3-P3 <<>> superwebhosting.co.uk
    ;; global options:  printcmd
    ;; Got answer:

    I did a look up on NS3 and NS4:
    Code:
    [email protected] [~]# dig a ns3.superwebhosting.co.uk
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.4.3-P3 <<>> a ns3.superwebhosting.co.uk
    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    ns3.superwebhosting.co.uk. 14400 IN     A       93.174.93.130
    
    [email protected] [~]# dig a ns4.superwebhosting.co.uk
    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    ns4.superwebhosting.co.uk. 14400 IN     A       93.174.93.131
    Assuming those are the right IP addresses all you need to do is add those IPs as child nameservers at your domain registrar and you should be good to go.
