I now use a VPS to host free clients and using zonedit.com to manage DNS. (I use zonedit because my ISP gave me just a one IP for my VPS. )
Anyway back to my topic
I configured my cpanel to use zonedit nameservers and changed my A record to use my VPS's IP. Now it is functioning and no issues with it. I can see my homepage.
But the problem occurs when i create client accounts via WHM. Even after 24 hours creating the subdomains(domain.mydomain.com) from my control panel, the web browser is showing me "page not found error". As i know, the subdomains are activated instantly. But what is the issue with me?
Do i have to set a A record with *.mydomain.com to forward them to my IP? Or have i forgot something? Or i have to create my own custom nameservers to host my clients?
And if i want to create two custom nameservers with one IP, can i do it?(without big downtime when using it.)
Kindly reply is totally appreciated.
this is wat u should do.
create these few A records.
ns1.yourdomain.com to ur IP
ns2.yourdomain.com to ur IP
(since users will want to point their domain to ns1 and ns2)
then you will have to create a wildcard A record:
*.yourdomain.com to ur ip
if you need to use your domain for email, then do this
point MX yourdomain.com to ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM with priority 0
to use google apps as your email service.
hope this helps
Anyway if someone points their A record to my IP, then it will work fine. No? Can they see their own website listed in my IP?
@CS Squad - I am not sure i can create custom nameservers in zonedit.com And even if i want to create two nameservers for my 1 IP, my domain registrator won't let me do that.
Anyway can't i get a help with failover ip's?
If they point their A record to your ip it will work.
it will work, coz wat u will do is just pointing ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com direct to the IP.
so zoneedit will treat it like a subdomain only.
but in fact, it will be a fully functioning NS for ur users to use
