HELP! Change to exclusive IP to enable an SSL certificate causing nameserver problems
Posted on 2008-10-28
I am using a dedicated Linux server with Plesk Control Panel through GoDaddy. I am trying to enable my first SSL certificate which requres an exclusive IP address. I am running a nameserver on the dedicated Linux machine and (I think) am running into nameserver problems with the new IP address. Here is the layout:
ns1.domain.com. A Shared-IP-Address-1
ns2.domain.com. A Shared-IP-Address-1
TYPICAL DOMAIN SETUP THAT WORKS RIGHT NOW FOR SHARED IP:
domain2.com. A Shared-IP-Address-1
domain2.com. NS ns1.domain.com.
domain2.com. NS ns2.domain.com.
THIS DNS SETUP DOESN'T WORK FOR EXCLUSIVE IP:
domain3.com. A Exclusive-IP-Address-2
domain3.com. NS ns1.domain.com.
domain3.com. NS ns2.domain.com.
Every domain hosted on the shared IP (Shared-IP-Address-1) has been working great. Will my nameserver only point to domains on the shared IP since it is pointing to that IP only?
