The two domains I am working with on my SOHO home server are 1)  and 2)

I setup first and configured BIND9 for it on the same 

To try to troubleshoot I configured on the same box, 
however it uses Zoneedit for DNS. works as expected. does not work which uses my local BIND9.

I've tried everything I can think of.  I've tested the config files, run 
dig, and verified port 53 is open.

I took the zone file for from my VPS that runs Plesk 
and previously hosted  I forgot to change the IP 
addresses in the zone to my SOHO box and the website on my VPS was 
accessible.  When I changed the IP addresses in the zone file to my SOHO 
box the website quit working.

I assumed this meant I had an Apache issue and that is when I added to test Apache.  I've checked apache several times...  
And I just checked it again.....

The server I am using is an old i3 laptop that I upgraded with a SSD.  
It has 4GB RAM.

I am using Ubuntu 20.04lts and BIND9.

My connection is a commercial/business Internet connection provided by 
my cable company for home office usage. This connection does not block 

I followed the Ubuntu 20.04 server manual to configure BIND9 and I have 
searched the Internet for more information.

If you need any additional information let me know.

Thank you for your help!!
