Host names and Nameservers not resolving to my own DNS server
I've talked to support and they claim I did it right and that in "2 hours" it will propagate but the 2 hours are long since gone and I'm up against a deadline. Can someone give me a sanity check on whether I've set up the host name and nameservers settings right? Even though their Tier 2 support says I did right, I still wonder. Here are my settings:
ns1 > x.x.x.x (IP address of my DNS server hosted in AWS)
ns2 > y.y.y.y (IP address of my DNS server hosted in AWS)
ns1.example.com (no IP address listed here)
ns2.example.com (no IP address listed here)
What I want to accomplish for my example.com domain, is to have GoDaddy publish the nameservers as ns1.example.com and ns2.example.com and then also resolve them to the appropriate IP addresses. It's been over 48 hours but no dice.
Note: Domain names and IP addresses in this post have been changed to protect the innocent.
Re: Host names and Nameservers not resolving to my own DNS server
If you've put in the correct nameservers in the Domain Management tool and it still hasn't propagated, I would contact AWS on this one. It sounds like maybe the nameservers they provided to you were not authoritative or perhaps a glitch has occurred on their end. As long as you put in all the info correctly, there shouldn't have been an issue.
