Help setting up Domains

Posted on 2011-03-03

I'm working with someone who has purchased their own domains. a .com and a .org. He wants both of them to point to

I have the site on my server under the domain My DNS are &

He has told me that he has set up the DNS for both and to point to my server. But when I looked it seems that they are both redirecting to his server at &

Before I tell him anything I'd like to have someone else check it out and make sure that I'm not making a mistake. Are & pointing to & Or are they going somewhere else?

ID: 35026976 uses ns1 and as name servers. uses ns761 and as name servers.

Those are the name servers you'd set with your registrar in each case.

Well, I am getting both of those domain names pointing to & which probably just means it has not propogated.

I traced the delegations via the root name servers, authoritative answers all the way through.

Propagation certainly has the potential to impact then, the .com veresion looks like it hasn't been changed yet (if they're all going to which could be delays with the registration agent.
