Q. I've 3 corporate domains registered with Go Daddy. Recently we setup our own nameserver using BIND9 under Linux. My setup is as follows:
However, when I try to change nameserver using Go Daddy domain control panel, I get an error that read as follows:
Errors were detected.
How do I configure my server to avoid errors?
A. Go daddy verifies your nameserver before making any changes to domain. There are two steps to avoid error.
Step # 1: Make sure your nameserver configured properly
Login to each nameserver and type the following command:
$ host example.com localhost
OR remotely test the same from your own computer, enter
$ host example.com 18.104.22.168
$ host example.com 22.214.171.124
$ host example.com 126.96.36.199
$ host 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206
You must get a valid answer from each of your nameserver including reverse dns (PTR).
Step # 2: Register nameserver hosts with Go Daddy
To set up your own Domain Name Server (DNS) service, you need to register your own hosts IP before changing domain name. This is common practice usually done by ISP admins. Go daddy provides the same feature via control panel.
a) Log in to your Go daddy Account Control Panel / Manager.
b) Select My Products section > click Manage Domains.
c) Click the domain (example.com) for which you want to create a host.
e) In the Host Name field, enter the host name you want to register. For example, enter ns1 as hostname.
g) Click OK to save the changes. Repeat above steps to add all your nameserver IP addresss.
h) Now you can change nameserver without a problem.
