Some of your nameservers listed at the parent nameservers did not respond

I am in the process of bringing up my very first virtual private server (Windows 2003) and have DNS woes.

If you look here you'll see them:

I do not have anything yet running at my site: not even "index.html".  Could this be the problem?  I don't know what directory to locate such a file, as of yet.  (InetPub?)

I believe I have configured everything okay regarding my domain (externally to my site), but need to build a connection between the domain and a website (internally).  I use Plesk.

Could someone advise me on how to get past this impasse?

    both name servers have the same ip?

    also it sounds like the dns domain is missing NS "name sever" records. Also each should have an A record.

    if you right click the domain is dns admin be sure that the name servers are listed, you should list them on that screen with thier public ip addresses.
