Hi!

I'm trying to delegate my free subdomain (onehalf3544.strangled.net) to ns*.he.net nameservers:
Code: [Select]
raspberry-pi% dig ns onehalf3544.strangled.net @ns1.afraid.org

; <<>> DiG 9.8.1-P1 <<>> ns onehalf3544.strangled.net @ns1.afraid.org

But all I get when trying to add this domain via dns.he.net web interface is this:
Code: [Select]
Zone failed validation test. ERROR: Delegation was not found. Please delegate to ns1, ns2, ns3, ns4 and ns5.he.net then retry. (strangled.net / onehalf3544.strangled.net).

Answers in this topic suggest that dns.he.net checks existence of whois record, which my subdomain does not have. OTOH, co.cc domains do not have(?) such records either and they work (as mentioned in that forum topic).

Ok, I've mailed dnsadmin@he.net and the problem was solved - I have successfully added my domain to the zone.
Don't know why this did not work at first, however.

Hi onehalf3544,

Im having exactly the same problem with my domain obtained through afraid.org.

When I try to register my jumpingcrab.com domain, I get the same error  :(

Any suggestion?
