Forum OpenACS Q&A: How to register public DNS
- I'm running openACS-3.2.4 with postgres 7.0.3. But It isn`t the problem!!
- I registered my domain name to www.2000domain.net
- I have a static IP (classless network with netmask 255.255.255.252)
- I counfigured my own DNS
when I attempt to modify the DNS information in "WHOIS" database they
always return me the answer:
Your Primary and secondary name servers are not set up yet. ... Here is the search result for your I.P. in the system:
Whois Server Version 1.3
No match for nameserver "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx".
- My ISP told me that every public DNS must be registered and I could register my DNS machine in www.networksolutions.com.
- Obviously I have been working on the previous point for a week without any success.
You have to make sure you register the nameserver not the domain name at this step.
This is the relevant section at netowrk solutions:
This form is used to register or modify a name server within your domain name. Only the administrative or technical contact associated with a domain name may request the creation or update of a host in that domain. Submit to mailto:HOSTMASTER@NETWORKSOLUTIONS.COM.
You may replace the coordinator, change host IP address, or change host name.

I am not sure if anyone else lets you do this registration. Check with the company that registered your domain name.
We are unable to process the Host Form below because of an error within the form. In particular, we noted the error indicated at the bottom of this message. ... ========================================================================= < Murat 60 Milano, Italia 20159 I> VALID: < Street/PO Box Address> < City>, < State> < Zipcode> < Country> =========================================================================
If your registrar won't let you do THAT, you need a new registrar.
Thank's to Dave and Jonathan
Another service that I have used is www.domaindirect.com For $39.95 you get registration plus a really cool interface that lets you redirect to ANY free webspace you can find such as the space that comes with dialup ISP accounts. You can hide your messy myisp.com/users/~its_a_me with www.greatstuff.com
Renewals are $25/yr including registration with the OpenSRS registrar. Part of www.tucows.com
