Parent

NS records at parent servers

ns1.syd1.hostingplatform.net.au
ns2.syd1.hostingplatform.net.au
[These were obtained from a.gtld-servers.net.]

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

NS

Mismatched glue 7/7

Skip glue checking. Make sure the nameservers domain is good standing Check syd1.hostingplatform.net.au

Nameservers report identical NS records 7/7

SUCCESS The NS records at all your nameservers are identical.

Nameservers respond 10/10

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 7/7

SUCCESS All your nameservers are also listed at the parent servers.

SOA

SOA record

SOA record is:
Hostmaster email
servers.vip-servers.com
Serial
2017082510
Refresh
86400
Retry
7200
Expire
3600000
TTL
86400

Serial agreement 7/7

SUCCESS All your nameservers agree that your SOA serial number is 2017082510 That means that all your nameservers are using the same data.

SOA MNAME 3/3

SUCCESS SOA (Start of Authority) record states that your master (primary) name server is: ns1.syd1.hostingplatform.net.au That server is listed at the parent servers, which is correct.

Serial value 1/1

SUCCESS SOA serial number is: 2017082510 This 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 0/1

WARNING SOA Retry interval is : 86400 seconds. This seems too big;. (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 : 7200 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 0/1

WARNING SOA Expire time is : 3600000 seconds. This seems too big;. (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 : 86400 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.
