    Your bind9 server is refusing queries
    Code:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: REFUSED, id: 26790
    Make sure you are allowing queries from external IPs (i.e. allow-query { any; }; )

    What is the code for that and where do I put it?
    I can ping the ip but traceroute to the domain returns
    theeducationchannel.info: Name or service not known
    Cannot handle "host" cmdline arg `theeducationchannel.info' on position 1 (argc 1)

    a line like below should exist in your /etc/bind/named.conf.options file.
    Code:
    allow-query { any; };
    Each of your zone definitions
    i.e.
    Code:
            zone "stellasmoon.com" IN {
                    type master;
                    allow-query { any; };
                    file "/var/lib/bind/stellasmoon.com/default";
    should have a allow-query as well - like the above example

    zone "stellasmoon.com" IN {
    type master;
    allow-query { any; };
    file "/var/lib/bind/stellasmoon.com/default";

    where should I insert this code?
    I thought all the bind files were in /etc/bind
    /var/lib/bind/ does exist but is empty

    I edited the code and put it in /etc/bind/named.conf.local

    Website doesnt resolve still

    that line
    Code:
    allow-query { any; };
    should be added to your zone definition - the above was an example on how it should be added
