No nameservers returned for my domain

0

Doing the following query for my domain returns nothing:

$ dig +short NS test.org
$

While the NS record in Route 53 seems completely normal:

test.org.
NS
ns-107.awsdns-13.com 
ns-1815.awsdns-35.co.uk 
ns-725.awsdns-26.net 
ns-1061.awsdns-04.org

172800

I have no idea what the error could be. Any help would be appreciated.

Odd. None of the nameservers you listed above have any records for that domain (no NS, no SOA).

Was your DNS automatically configured when you registered the domain with Amazon? If you created it yourself, did you make it a Public Hosted Zone or a Private Hosted Zone?

I added a public zone for the domain to my account, which generated these NS records:

web11.org.
NS
ns-1363.awsdns-42.org. 
ns-323.awsdns-40.com. 
ns-1978.awsdns-55.co.uk. 
ns-845.awsdns-41.net.

172800

dig @ns-323.awsdns-40.com web11.org

;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
web11.org.              900     IN      SOA     ns-1363.awsdns-42.org. awsdns-hostmaster.amazon.com. 1 7200 900 1209600 86400

So that seems to be working fine. (I've since deleted the zone).

I suggest you start over. Remove the Hosted Zone for the domain, create a new one, and use the newly generated nameservers from the NS record to configure the domain's nameservers in the "Registered domains" section.

Did you configure the addresses listed in your NS records to be your nameservers at the domain registrar?

Yes, the domain is registered at AWS so I use the following nameservers:

ns-885.awsdns-46.net
ns-212.awsdns-26.com
ns-1819.awsdns-35.co.uk
ns-1275.awsdns-31.org

Can you post the domain name? I'm assuming it's not actually test.org.

web11.org

Hi,

The name servers for the web11.org hosted zone don't match the name servers for the domain registration. You can just do the following:

  1. Get the name servers for the hosted zone. See "Getting the Name Servers for a Public Hosted Zone" in the Route 53 Developer Guide:

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/Route53/latest/DeveloperGuide/GetInfoAboutHostedZone.html

  1. Update the domain registration to use the name servers that you got in step 1. See "Adding or Changing Name Servers and Glue Records for a Domain":

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/Route53/latest/DeveloperGuide/domain-name-servers-glue-records.html
