    Does the server have a public IP address, or is it behind a router?

    Where are your domain name records hosted? If the computer has a public address, you need at least an "A" record that points its name to its address like:
    Code:
    www     IN     A    10.10.10.10
    If you have a mail server, your domain needs one or more "MX" records as well, directing incoming mail for the domain to the mail server.

    Beyond this is more complicated than I want to get into. This article is a bit technical, but then DNS is a technical subject: https://www.slashroot.in/what-dns-zo...d-its-contents
