Hi there, I am sure there is a simple answer to this one.
I have a client who's domain is registered with Yahoo. I have had to set up their MX records as well as 2 A records and 2 Cname records in order to get their site viewable on the web. Currently, my issue is the www.myclientsdomain.com
points to the server root wich is forwarded to our company's website. That ain't no good! Further, FTP functionality is spotty at best. Some clients can connect, some cannot all using the same settings.
Usually, using a domain registrar such as godaddy or netsol, everything is peachy. Just point the primary and secondary nameservers and my Plesk setup handles the rest to point everything where it needs to be.
Unfortunately, Yahoo wants to control virtually everything with regards to DNS, hence the modified records on the Yahoo domain registrar level. If I remove a record, it will automatically point that to yahoo servers. ARRRGH!
Currently I have the MX records set up and running fine. Some of the A records are pointed correctly as http://myclientsdomain.com
shows up for all parties.
I have the following set up for A records and Cnames in Yahoo:
A Record myclientsdomain.com 184.108.40.206
A Record mail.myclientsdomain.com 220.127.116.11
A Record *.myclientsdomain.com 18.104.22.168
CNAME Record ftp.myclientsdomain.com
CNAME Record www.myclientsdomain.com
HEre is what is active in the Plesk admin panel DNS settings for this particular domain:
22.214.171.124 / 24 PTR myclientsdomain.com.
myclientsdomain.com. NS ns1.mywebserver.com.
myclientsdomain.com. NS ns2.mywebserver.com.
myclientsdomain.com. NS ns3.mywebserver.com.
myclientsdomain.com. NS ns4.mywebserver.com.
myclientsdomain.com. NS ns5.mywebserver.com.
myclientsdomain.com. A 126.96.36.199
mail.myclientsdomain.com. A 188.8.131.52
ns.myclientsdomain.com. A 184.108.40.206
m. A 220.127.116.11
