    I have the 6.10 ispconfig godaddy setup,
    The nameservers ns1 and are setup and resolving via external whois servers
    dig seems to resolve this ok both at local host per domain and at the ns level

    I have 3 domains one of which is setup, these 3 domains resolve sporadically and not consistently,
    I have searched through the forums and have checked many of the settings you folks have kindly recommended to others but have not been able to easily resolve the issue

    as an aside the email works from outlook or from the domains very effectively but I cannot find any links to webmail and the / webmail address will not resolve

    Any thoughts would be appreciated

    Please run the following command on your primary and secondary nameserver and post the output:

    dig @localhost

    Well.. It does not work. ns1 and can not be reached.
    As it can not be reached, the ns does not work for

    Looks like you have set something wrong at godaddy for, or you need to wait a bit longer for the dns to resolve.
    When did you create ns1 and ?

    Last week theres been plenty of time, and it did resolve perfectly at one point or so i thought, I tested it from a remote computer and it resolved last week,

    Clearly i have altered something in the settings

    the name servers at godaddy are set to ns1 for the domain respectively and the host summary is also set to the same. I am assuming this is the correct settings.

    last altered on the 5th so lost of time to resolve, there must be an error on my part
