Dnscheck [ns1.dreamhost.com]: failed


#1

This is the following email I have got from the registra for the domain name bookmarking.it

Dear Customer,

The DNS change requested for this name could not be completed. The servers
are not configured to IT specifications (see error message below).

Please submit a new request once the zone file has been correctly
configured.

My questions here are;

  1. Is it my responsibilty to correctly configure the zone file? and if so, how?

  2. What is the reason the DNS check is failing? Is it on the side of the registra or dreamhost?

If you can’t fix it, Outsource it!

I know that on that date, there was an issue with NS2:
http://www.dreamhoststatus.com/2006/11/30/ns2dreamhostcom-down-for-short-while/

Now that the DNS servers are supposedly back to normal, can you run the test again?

Well I have basically logged into the registra, and re-submitted the DNS details the check was conducted by the registra. When I did a DNS check it gave me the details for the loading page over at http://www.instra.com. Therefore I guess I will try out again after 24 hours and report back here. Thanks to the advice

If you can’t fix it, Outsource it!
