View Full Version : DNS problem on my dedicated server

09-09-2004, 10:31 AM

I hire a dedicated server (virtualtransat.virtualtransat.com) that hosts only one domain (virtualtransat.com).
When I ping virtualtransat.com, it works fine.
When I ping virtualtransat.virtualtransat.com, it returns "host unknown".
So I figure out that the dedicated server has no DNS setup (I can reach it using its ip address only).

This problem leads to a sendmail problem, at least I suppose so. When I send an email from virtualtransat.com (by the mean of PHP) it does return the email wit an error message : "reason: 553 <virtualtransat@virtualtransat.virtualtransat.co m>: Sender address rejected: Domain not f

What shall I do to have this fixed ?

Thanks so much if you can help.
Best regards

One of our technicians has responded to your ticket. It looks like it was a DNS error.

Sure it is ! virtualtransat.virtualtransat.com seems to have no name server pointing on it.

So now, what to do to fix that ?
Is it my reponsability or westhost's to configure such things ?

I really need a fast and efficient fix : meanwhile I can't have the mail facility ...
So I can't work and my customers are not so happy with it.

Thanks for any help that you will give me.
Best regards
