Resolving domain name with www record

It looks like a case of serial problems...

The two servers listed for are:        172800  IN      A   172800  IN      A returns:       10800   IN      A, with a serial of 1 returns no A record for, but the zone 
has a serial of 3

Additionally, the authorities listed are:

;; AUTHORITY SECTION:       10800   IN      NS       10800   IN      NS

I can't find records for either of those servers on or

This doesn't match up with what you have registered.

I'm not sure how your setup is, and whether you have something to warrant the 
different NS records there, but (I'm assuming is your master, 
and is your slave, based on which has the right data) 
you should be able to update the serial for the zone on to 
something higher than 3, and have the zone transfer over automatically.
