    I'm trying to do an addon domain to my account and keep getting:

    Sorry, the domain is already pointed to an IP address that does not appear to use DNS servers associated with this server. Please transfer the domain to this servers nameservers or have your administrator add one of its nameservers to /etc/ips.remotedns and make the proper A entries on that remote nameserver.

    I did a whois on the domain name and the name servers (primary and secondary) both point to x10hosting.

    Any suggestions or clues to what could be wrong?

    Looks like the x10hosting nameservers are having some trouble.

    You could try removing, and re-adding, the domain as a parked domain...

    Day 2+ ... Is there anyone official from X10hosting that monitors these forums?

    Yes, but as you can imagine, most of their time is occupied with paid support.

    1. Are you sure you spelled the domain correctly?
      1. benoittouchte.com - I tried several sources for any record of that domain, and it looks like it is still unregistered.
      2. benoittouchette.com - is pointed to x10 servers.
    2. When you try to park it, what is the error you are getting?

    I've had the domain for years so i know its registered.

    I get this error no matter what i try:

    "Sorry, the domain is already pointed to an IP address that does not appear to use DNS servers associated with this server. Please transfer the domain to this servers nameservers or have your administrator add one of its nameservers to /etc/ips.remotedns and make the proper A entries on that remote nameserver."

    Still happening as of 10 minutes ago.

    you have posted two (2) domains in this thread - which one are you trying to set ?

    as posted above - for domain [ benoittouchte.com ] - I also tried several sources for any record of that domain, and it is still unregistered - IF you are trying to set it you need to register it

    and as posted above - for domain [ benoittouchette.com ] - I 'see' the DNS-NS records set to [ NS1.X10HOSTING.COM ] and [ NS2.X10HOSTING.COM ]

    Right now set to use x10hosting name servers so of course it won't resolve to an ip till i can do it as an addon here but its not working with the above error since the beggining of the week. I even waited 24hrs to make sure it would propagate the first day before posting here when i switched to the x10hosting name servers.

    Wow! Sure am glad i don't have a paid account here, nearly two weeks since that thread was started and no resolution. Guess i really should look elsewhere for hosting in that case.

    part of what I 'see' at URL [ http://adboards.org/ ] - is "The Sponsored Listings displayed above are served automatically by a third party. Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers. In case of trademark issues please contact the domain owner directly (contact information can be found in whois)."

    Your domain [ adboards.org ] is set and working now (for me)

    EDIT - I now 'see' domain [ adboards.org ] is at a other host
