DNS Help - Been trying to do this for months

Ok someone has to be able to help me here.

I have the latest webmin, and i have bind

i have a domain name called

thedigitaldream.co.uk

i have one server, just one as im poor

so the one server is gunna be the dns, email, web and ftp server. Its only for a small site anyway so it will be fine

Right, i have set the hostname of the machine to srv1

i have created a master record using webmin and this is what i typed :

domain name/network : thedigitaldream.co.uk
Master Server : srv1.thedigitaldream.co.uk

ok so is this correct so far???

now then, i know you have to create address records for that master record. but what do i type there. all i want is so that my domain name loads my site, thats it, thats all i want.

so i have created the master record, which i think i have done right. so what do i need to create in address records to get it to work???

please i really want this to work, its been months and i have had the domain since june the 7th and thats how long i have been trying to do this

so please, someone must be able to help me, i have searched google loads, i was on google for about 5 hours straight one day, but nothing

What version of BIND are you running?

8

Have you registered your name server as the primary and secondary name server for you domain? (when registering you will need to register a primary and secondary nameserver - but these can be the same machine). The people whom you bought your domain from will be able to help changing the nameserver registration for your domain.

Have you setup /etc/named.conf? If so can you post the contents here.

yer i have given the details to my registrar

thats all done, but i just need to setup dns but i cant do it, and i am using webmin to do it

there is no point in me posting the contents of the files, cos i havent set it up at all, thats what i need help with

i have webmin, and i just want someone to help me with it as i just connot find any tutorials out there to help me with it, i've been looking for like 3 months

is there not anyone who can help me, im begging, as i have had a domain name for months and i want to use it.

People are trying to help you... You don't need to beg, just answer their questions and post details.

First of all, what is your domain? and the IP addresses and names of your nameservers?

A lookup of mx records for thedigitaldream.co.uk shows the following:

> set type=mx
> thedigitaldream.co.uk
Server: which1.mydomain.com
Address: 10.14.1.20

thedigitaldream.co.uk preference = 10, mail exchanger = thedigitaldream.co.uk

thedigitaldream.co.uk internet address = 81.97.225.82

But it doesn't show the correct nameserver(s). It shows root servers instead of his nameserver(s) (although that may be a problem on my side - someone changed my ARIN DB nameservers ).

If that is his server, it also doesn't allow smtp (connection refused).
