I didn't go to college but I have a job at a internet solutions business. I am trying to setup the name servers but am having issues. I configured cpanel and apache for them but I just can't get the nameservers working.

This is the site affected: http://goo.gl/qFSd8
These are the two ips to the server: http://pastebin.com/5MLmc8dp

You need to setup the nameserver IP's at your registrar's website.  They should have a tool somewhere to configure them.  Just go there and punch in the IP's for them.

Recycle your old CD's, don't trash them!

According to the WHOIS info I see for the domain, it's nameservers are listed as ns1.sharics.com and ns2.sharics.com.  Neither of those will resolve to an IP for me.  Are those correct and should they be resolving to the listed IP addresses?

Also trying to query your listed IP's directly fails due to not being able to contact them.  Have you verified that bind is configured and running properly?  Do you have any firewalls or routers that may be blocking the connection?

To check if bind is running and configured, try querying it locally.  From the machines that are running bind, use dig yourdomain.com @127.0.0.1 and see if you get the proper response.  If both machines work with that, then next check for any firewalls or routers that may be blocking the connection.

Hmmm. Not sure what is wrong.
