Operational help needed. Must register DNS server. Money available.
Details below. Note that the more you read the stupider you will get.
Facts: I own WETWORK.NET, registered with the register.com registrar.
I own LETOH.COM, registered with network solutions registrar.
20-oct I register a domain LETOH.COM with network solutions,
and attempt to use the nameserver "server.wetwork.net"
which is under my register.com domain wetwork.net.
Network solutions says to [NIC-991020.1545c]:
ERROR: Name Server <SERVER.WETWORK.NET>is not registered
20-oct I send in a host template [NIC-991020.15848] but NetSol
The <WETWORK.NET> domain is non-existent.
First register this host through the host registration
process or choose a different name-server.
AT THE SAME TIME I get another mail message from them:
All Host Forms must be submitted from the e-mail address
of the current host contact...we have sent a notification
message ... which they did not send anywhere I can tell.
22-oct I sent mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and asked them to fix this.
26-oct Netsol says:
The problem with your HOST registration was that you were
trying to register a host but the TOP-Level part of the host
is not a registered domain, i.e.WETWORK.NET.
26-oct I wrote netsol and said:
Wetwork.net exists.. just not with your registry.
However, I wish to use mail.wetwork.net as a DNS server
with your registry future domains. Please register the host asap.
27-oct Help@internic.net says to send in a host template and
includes one in the message...
27-oct I submit the host template [NIC-991027.75ef]. I also
follow it up to help@ with:
991027.75ef duplicates 991020.15848 as per your request.
27-oct Once again I get the 'All host forms must be submitted
from the email address of the current host contact...'
27-oct I forward the mess back to help@internic [NIC-991027.14981]
I forward a copy to kimh@ with header
Subject: 1. I submit host form. 2 you reject it.
3 I ask for help. 4 help says submit host templte. I DO.
Here's the rejection again. Please fix
27-oct help@ responds with:
