NS records at parent servers

[These were obtained from a0.in.afilias-nst.info.]

Glue at parent nameservers 0/7

WARNING The parent servers are not providing glue for all your nameservers. This means that they are supplying the NS records (host.example.com), but not supplying the A records. That may cause some extra milliseconds in DNS. This will usually occur if your DNS servers are not in the same TLD as your domain


Mismatched glue 7/7

Skip glue checking. Make sure the nameservers domain is good standing Check awsdns-31.org Check awsdns-44.co.uk

Nameservers A records 0/7

Some servers does not provide A records for nameservers.
missing A record(s) for (ns-1272.awsdns-31.org,ns-1894.awsdns-44.co.uk,ns-492.awsdns-61.com,ns-577.awsdns-08.net) at nameserver
missing A record(s) for (ns-1272.awsdns-31.org,ns-1894.awsdns-44.co.uk,ns-492.awsdns-61.com,ns-577.awsdns-08.net) at nameserver

Nameservers report identical NS records 7/7

SUCCESS The NS records at all your nameservers are identical.

Nameservers respond 10/10

SUCCESS All of your nameservers listed at the parent nameservers responded.

Nameserver name validity 7/7

SUCCESS All of the NS records that your nameservers report are valid (no IPs or partial domain names).

Number of nameservers 2/5

WARNING You have 2 nameservers. You must have at least 2 nameservers (RFC2182 section 5 recommends at least 3 nameservers), and preferably no more than 7.

Lame nameservers 7/7

SUCCESS All the nameservers listed at the parent servers answer authoritatively for your domain.

Missing (stealth) nameservers 0/7

DANGER There are nameservers not listed at the parent servers:

Root missing nameservers 7/7

SUCCESS All of the nameservers listed at the parent nameservers are also listed as NS records at your nameservers.

Nameservers on separate class C's 7/7

SUCCESS Nameservers are in a different networks.

public IPs 7/7

SUCCESS All of your NS records appear to use public IPs.


SOA record

SOA record is:
Hostmaster email

Serial agreement 7/7

SUCCESS All your nameservers agree that your SOA serial number is 1 That means that all your nameservers are using the same data.


SUCCESS SOA (Start of Authority) record states that your master (primary) name server is: ns-1894.awsdns-44.co.uk That server is listed at the parent servers, which is correct.

Serial value 0/1

WARNING SOA serial number is: 1 This not appears to be in the recommended format of YYYYMMDDnn, where 'nn' is the revision. This number must be incremented every time you make a DNS change.

Refresh value 1/1

SUCCESS SOA Retry interval is : 7200 seconds. This seems OK. (Values about 3600-7200 seconds is good if not using DNS NOTIFY; RFC1912 2.2 recommends a value between 1200 to 43200 seconds (20 minutes to 12 hours)). This value determines how often secondary/slave nameservers check with the master for updates.

Retry value 1/1

SUCCESS SOA Retry interval is : 900 seconds. This seems OK. (Values about 120-7200 seconds is good). The retry value is the amount of time your secondary/slave nameservers will wait to contact the master nameserver again if the last attempt failed.

Expire value 1/1

SUCCESS SOA Expire time is : 1209600 seconds. This seems OK. (Values 604800 to 2419200 seconds (1-4 weeks) is good). RFC1912 suggests 2-4 weeks. This is how long a secondary/slave nameserver will wait before considering its DNS data stale if it can't reach the primary nameserver.

TTL value 1/1

SUCCESS SOA Expire time is : 900 seconds. This seems OK. (about 300 to 86400 seconds or 5 min - 24 hours is good). RFC2308 suggests a value of 1-3 hours. This value used to determine the default (technically, minimum) TTL (time-to-live) for DNS entries, but now is used for negative caching.
