The NS record is the root of the domain, such as domain.com, the A record is a record for a specific host, such as www.domain.com.

You'll need to make sure the folks that your authoritative name servers that host your domain name has got the NS record for your domain and the A records for the hosts of your domain. This is probably hosted by the "orlando web hosting" company or its parent comany.

First step is to find out who hosts that domain DNS and second step is to make sure those records exist.

sardiskan,
I have access to the DSN settings.
I just need to know that to add or correct specifically.

 Host Record type Value
 xx.xxx.xx.xx / 24 PTR cfcug.com.
 cfcug.com. NS ns6.orlando-web-hosting.net.
 cfcug.com. NS ns5.orlando-web-hosting.net.
 cfcug.com. A xx.xxx.xx.xx
 ns5.cfcug.com. A xx.xxx.xx.xx
 ns6.cfcug.com. A xx.xxx.xx.xx
 www.cfcug.com. CNAME cfcug.com.

TIA

Well you simply need to add the NS and A records.

For example, if I have a domain called stuff.com I would need to create an NS record that points to the nameserver that hosts that domain, such as ns6.orlando-web-host.net or whatever

THen you'd need to create an A record for each host on your domain, such as your web server, email server, FTP server, or whatever.

you would add a A record of www.stuff.com that points to the IP address of that web server.

sardiskan,
I already have this I think above...
cfcug.com. NS ns6.orlando-web-hosting.net.
cfcug.com. NS ns5.orlando-web-hosting.net.

I already have the A records for the email server, ftp server and web server I just did not show them for conciseness.
You said I need a A record for www.cfcug.com do I not already have one since www.cfcug.com CNAME cfcug.com and cfcug.com A to ip address.
Could you specifically type what I need to change or add using my example above ignoring the web server, email server and FTP server? I just need the records relating to the domain name.
TIA

Oh I see, you already have the DNS information in. I did an nslookup on my system, the cfcug.com domain gives me an ip of 66.232.24.73. Is this correct? I looked closer at the DNS entries and everything actually looks right. So now I'm not sure what the problem is.

If you have all of your hosts as A records, nothing is missing. Why do you think something is missing?
