I just thought I would share the issue I have been having over the past week, I have a domain host and a separate web host. I parked my domain, hometownnerd.com, on my web host’s domain so that I could start having my paid host provide my files instead of relying on my server, which is terribly under powered in both memory and CPU. Which in case you do not know what parking means, it is when you want to provide your files on more than one domain, say you have a domain name from your webhost called hometownnerd.zz.mu, which is not a domain you like, you can park your main domain hometownnerd.com on it and both of the domains will start to server the same sets of files with the only difference being the URL. So after parking my domain name I then needed to change the domain servers to my web hosts nameservers so that my site could be resolved, but I kept getting an error telling me to make sure the nameservers are set up and working correctly. I started to send requests for support to my web host and they just kept saying change my nameservers, but there is no real way to test to make sure the nameservers are doing their job so you need to assume it is working. I tried for a week to understand what was going on with my web host, thinking it was their fault. Today, over a week later, I send an email to my domain host asking about the error, within 1 hour they had told me the issue was their form to submit the changes was not working correctly and they set my nameservers manually for me. Live and learn, just wish there was a way to do a test to verify the nameserver would serve my domain name. I can test it when I have my domain name being served from my house, but on the web I guess there is no such check.
