How do I keep my site from loading when  http://ns.domainname.com is entered in the browser address bar?

I should see a "cannot load site" page, but instead it loads the entire website (ns.domainname.co/index.html, etc.).

Is there a setting in Plesk that keeps this from occurring?

Thanks in advance.

"http://ns.domainname.com" is translated by the browser into "http://ns.domainname.com/" which is the correct link to the default page on the web server which is usually 'index.html' but can be whatever is defined as a default document on the server.

Hi DaveBaldwin,

I tried to delete this question right after posting it last nigh, but the experts-exchange.com site had gone down for maintenance. I originally posted it because th company that assists with the VPS was struggling to find a solution. However, they did finally redeem themselves. The solution was this:

Since domainname.com is registered with the nameservers ns1.domainname.com and ns2.domainname.com, there is no problem in removing the nameserver record ns.domainname.com.

From within the Plesk control panel, We have now removed this nameserver record from the DNS zone file of domainname.com. Please note that this DNS change will take around 4-6 hours to fully propagate over the internet.


The DNS has since propogated, and the site is no longer loading when ns.domainname.com is used. in the address bar.

I'm not sure how to work the points on this--you've earned some just for responding, IMO.
