Dns Server Alive But Not Authoritative


Recommended Posts

Checking the DNS information for my site brings up the following for my domain:


DNS server ns1.totalchoicehosting.com [] is alive, but not authoritative

DNS server ns2.totalchoicehosting.com [] is alive, but not authoritative


Is this part of the propagation process that will resolve eventually (it's been over 72 hours since registration) or is there something wrong?


By the way, according to my Total Choice order information, these should be the correct servers.


Thanks for any help!

You are a reseller, right? You have to add that domain in through your WHM. Right now, the domain does not have an account on the server, so the name server can't possibly be authoritative for a nonexistent domain.


Let me know if you need some help with this ok?
