Thanks for the good examples Tony.  

Nice to learn your "+noall +answer" dig syntax also.

What is a domain registrar with good support, that can guide me through
getting this to work under linux (fedora 24 and bind 9.x)?  I can buy a new domain
if need be.

My current registrar may respond with a different person, for each mail
for a given single issue, and I'm getting inconsistent answers.  They will not
tell me any of their log error info; not sure if they even look?  They ignore
several of my questions.  In fairness they are sincere and trying.
