DNS Subdomaining Win2k

Hi there,

I'm hosting serveral sites on my server including the DNS for them.

So far I've not had any problems with 'normal' domains in the format

www.example.com     where www is the host.  I just put the entry into the DNS MMC, set the nameservers and all done.

However now I'm required to host a domain:  www.bedandbreakfasts.eu.com - this has a subdomain on the .eu domain.

What should my DNS config be?   Even on the machine itself the name resolves to the registrar.

The problem is not with the config on your server, its with the fact that the owner of eu.com owns the namespace.  They have to set up a record in their nameserver that points bedandbreakfasts.eu.com to your DNS server.

From there, you'll be able to set up the www name for that subdomain.

Ask the owner of the eu.com domain to add a new domain to there config named bedandbreakfasts.eu.com and then pointing the NS records to your DNS servers. You only have to create a new domain on your server named bedandbreakfasts.eu.com and you're ready to go...

Thanks.   But thats not it.

The nameservers are correctly set in the domain-manager.

It the double-subdomaining that I don't know how to do in the DNS MMC control panel in Windows 2000.

Single subdomains like  www. or ftp. etc not a problem.

But www.bedandbreakfasts.eu.com which is effectively two...

Any ideas

Just to make sure we're talking about the same thing:

bedandbreakfasts.eu.com is the subdomain, www is a A record in that sub domain. Or do you mean that www.bedandbreakfasts.eu.com is the sub domain.

Martap..  Thanks for clearing that up.

I need to subdomain the eu.com with bedandbreakfasts and then put a A (host) record in that subdomain pointing to the IP I want to host the site on.

I think thats correct.  

I've been able to add host records for normal domains but cannot see how to create this subdomain in the MMC and then put a host record on top.

Well then, my first comment still stands. Just right click on your DNS server and choose New Zone. Then Standard Primary for the Type, and were you should type in Zone Name you type bedandbreakfasts.eu.com. Tada, you have a new domain and treat it like any other.

It looks like Centralnic is hosting eu.com just like it would any other top-level domain.
As such, if entering bedandbreakfast.eu.com in the dns zone name does not work, you need to verify with centralnic that their eu.com name servers for bedandbreakfast.eu.com point to your name server hosting information below their name servers.  Other than that, setting bedandbreakfast.eu.com as your dns zone name should be all you need to do.

It seems that bedandbreakfast.eu.com is hosted by udagnet.net, if this is not you it will never work. You need to contact centralnic to point to your DNS servers.

Non-authoritative answer:
bedandbreakfast.eu.com  nameserver = server1-ns3.udagdns.net
bedandbreakfast.eu.com  nameserver = server1-ns1.udagdns.net
bedandbreakfast.eu.com  nameserver = server1-ns2.udagdns.net

server1-ns1.udagdns.net internet address = 62.146.28.82
server1-ns2.udagdns.net internet address = 62.146.33.101
server1-ns3.udagdns.net internet address = 62.146.33.102

I've put in the nameservers into the 123reg.co.uk control panel.

However it does seem to be taking some time to come over....

That however is a separate issue because I can check the name resolution etc on the box itself before hand.

Even tho I use 123reg.co.uk it does look like centralnic are the hosts

I've uploaded a screen-grab of the DNS MMC...  What am I missing?

I can't see your screenshot, Bendencko, for I think very obvious reasons.. Can't you put it under another site?

oh sorry, I overlooked that..

You're DNS configuration within MMC looks fine. You should be able to resolve www.bedandbreakfasts.eu.com now LOCALLY! (Not shouting just emphasizing :) )

Maybe you if that's now working, try to restart the DNS service, just to be sure.

the name server at udagdns.net shows that the page is hosted at 213.61.105.210.  You need to contact your registrar and have them change the dns servers from server1-ns1.udagdns.net
server1-ns3.udagdns.net
server1-ns2.udagdns.net
to your nameserver that is hosting the bedandbreakfast.eu.com zone.
