"DNS Ready: OK To Delegate"


New Member
one again - sorry I haven't found an answer in the other threads.

for my domain "s v m a i n . d e" (without the blanks, thing server maintanence .de)
I like to have an secondary Namesever entry at Zoneedit.com

I had create this domain after login and
I have entry this entried in named.conf of my BIND DNS server, how I has been informed:

zone "example.de" in {
type master;
file "master/example_de.db";
allow-transfer {;; };
also-notify {;; };
notify yes;

But the domain info shows that:

Domain Type:Secondary DNS
Application Type: Nameserver Delegation
DNS Subscription:NONE
Active Portfolio: NONE
Date Added: 08-Sep-2017

Assigned to User: "me"

Domain Status: DNS Ready: OK To Delegate

The primary server info on zoneedit shows the right status. It points to the IP of my server where is a bind runing and this should be the primary DNS.

In the cache overview in the zoneedit website, for this domain, are the RRs, like I has been set on my primary DNS server in the zonefile. So it looks all correct.

But, I do not understand what I have "to delegate" now - and how can I fixed that.

Thank all for you answer and your help

hi there

the domain seems fine as set to secondary DNS... its still set as:
"DNS Ready: OK To Delegate
as zoneedit nameservers are not yet delegated at the domains registrar.

you will need to contacg the domains registrar and add:


If you can please let me know wnce thats complete I can set the domain to active

ahh .. it has not yet reached the .de root servers:

dig @s.de.net ns svman.de

; <<>> DiG 9.8.3-P1 <<>> @s.de.net ns svman.de
; (1 server found)
;; global options: +cmd

;svman.de. IN NS

svman.de. 86400 IN NS robotns2.second-ns.de.
svman.de. 86400 IN NS ns1.first-ns.de.
svman.de. 86400 IN NS robotns3.second-ns.com.

perhaps contact the registrar again to see if the request was received properly

I'm having this issue and read the thread, but I don't understand how it was fixed. solutionsmga.com is my new domain and I get the 'ready to delegate' message.

the domain would have been set as active at midnight tonight ... its cosmetic.. DNS will still function as long as zoneedit servers are delegated.
I have set it to active for you now.
