ERROR: One or more of the nameservers listed at the parent servers are not listed as NS records at your nameservers. The problem NS records are:
ns1.advantageprinting.net.
ns2.advantageprinting.net.

Missing Stealth Name Servers

FAIL: You have one or more missing (stealth) nameservers. The following nameserver(s) are listed (at your nameservers) as nameservers for your domain, but are not listed at the parent nameservers (therefore, they may or may not get used, depending on whether your DNS servers return them in the authority section for other requests, per RFC2181 5.4.1). You need to make sure that these stealth nameservers are working; if they are not responding, you may have serious problems! The DNSreport will not query these servers, so you need to be very careful that they are working properly.

advantageprinting.net.
This is listed as an ERROR because there are some cases where nasty problems can occur (if the TTLs vary from the NS records at the root servers and the NS records point to your own domain, for example).

You haven't posted a question, only an error message.  So what do you want to know?

Because it seems as though you might be trying to host your own DNS Name Servers which is generally a BAD idea.

Please describe what it is you are trying to do if you want help resolving your problem.

You still need to provide more information.  What exactly are you trying to accomplish?  What is your ultimate goal here? Are you trying to host your own public DNS for advantageprinting.net?  If so, why?

It doen't matter that you want to host multiple sites on the server.  But you generally DON'T want to host your PUBLIC DNS on the server that hosts your sites.  You want that to be hosted on a NOC level server that can consistently provide DNS resolution.  This is generally done by your domain registrar, or you can use a DNS Service for it if you like (such as http://www.zoneedit.com).

So... your ns1 and ns2 should point to PUBLIC servers.  Then, you would add HOST A records in the zone that point to the server you are hosting the sites and applications on.  As an example, please compare your configuration: (http://www.robtex.com/dns/advantageprinting.net.html) to mine (http://www.robtex.com/dns/techsoeasy.com.html).  You'll see that TechSoEasy.com points to 69.64.155.173 which is not the same place that the NS servers point to.  Yes, I currently don't use aliased name servers... ie, ns1.TechSoEasy.com, but I certainly could if I used www.ZoneEdit.com, and these would still be separate servers than where my web site and/or web apps are hosted.
