    The link is not working for me. I have the same problem, though.
    These are the requirements:

    You must have two authoritative nameservers. You can verify if your nameservers are authoritative by visiting and entering the domain name and its nameservers to receive a reply. If the answer at ZoneCheck lists a non-authoritative answer at the top of the nameserver list, your nameservers are not authoritative. The nameservers in the domain name's zone file must match the nameservers you are trying to use, or your nameservers are considered non-authoritative.
    Each nameserver must be on a separate class-C network. That is, the first three octets cannot be the same. For example, and are valid.
    You must have a Start of Authority (SOA) refresh value between 10000 and 86400 seconds.
    You must have a retry value between 1800 and 28800 seconds.
    You must have a Time to Live (TTL) value between 180 and 345600.
    You must specify a Mail Exchanger (MX) record that resolves to a valid mail server for the life of the domain name registration, not just for the registration itself.
    Serial numbers for all nameserver zones for the domain name must match.
