Nameserver issues

I am hosting my own servers. I registered my domain through Yahoo!. I called Yahoo! and they registered my name servers and the advanced DNS configuration page shows ns1.austin-computer.com and ns2.austin-computer.com.
When I try to load my site, with ., http://www., or any subdomain, I get a server not found error.
I called Yahoo! and they told me I needed to setup a database on my nameservers to host things.

Both of my servers are running Windows Server 2003 R2. I have DNS configured on both, and NS1 is the primary domain controller for Active Directory.

It is not crucial that I have a domain or that I host my own DNS, but it would be nice if I could do it. My servers only run IIS, Active Directory, DNS, Ventrilo Server, TeamSpeak Server, Exchange Server 2003 (If I can get the send connectors to work), Symantec Norton Corporate and Print Services.

I can use the IP (75.9.47.39) to access most of that, but a domain is necessary to get Exchange to work.


Does anyone know anything about the name server database Yahoo! mentioned?
I hope I didn't leave anything out.

I suggest you call Yahoo again to clarify this or walk you through this at least.

You need to set up an (A) record on your DNS server in your forward lookup zone (create a reverse lookup for it at the same time), for the www and have it point to the IP of the domain. for subdomains you need to set up CNAME records or Aliases

Here's a summary of how to configure it

I have an A record.

I will try calling Yahoo! later after my dad wakes up.

I posted a graphic in the above post, but IIS is requiring authentication and I do not have any authentication settings set.

Does anyone know what could be causing this?

It must be enabled somewhere. :)
