Glue at parent nameservers 7/7

SUCCESS Parent nameservers know A records for your domain, Very good !

NS

Mismatched glue 7/7

SUCCESS The DNS report did not detect any discrepancies between the glue provided by the parent servers and that provided by your authoritative DNS servers.

Nameservers A records 7/7

SUCCESS Nameservers do include corresponding A records when asked for your NS records. This ensures that your DNS servers know the A records corresponding to all your NS records.

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 5/5

SUCCESS You have 4 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
admin.dnsnameserver.org.dnsnameserver.org
Serial
2011042200
Refresh
10800
Retry
180
Expire
2419200
TTL
3600

Serial agreement 0/7

DANGER Some nameservers have a different soa serial number That can occur because of recent master update (slave have not loaded master zone yet) or the is a problem in DNS.
There is serial 2011042200 at nameserver(s) (50.18.159.133 50.18.159.170 50.18.158.140)
There is serial 2011102200 at nameserver(s) (50.18.159.140)

SOA MNAME 3/3

SUCCESS SOA (Start of Authority) record states that your master (primary) name server is: dpns1.dnsnameserver.org That server is listed at the parent servers, which is correct.

Serial value 1/1

SUCCESS SOA serial number is: 2011042200 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 1/1

SUCCESS SOA Retry interval is : 10800 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 : 180 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 : 2419200 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 : 3600 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.
