Problem: You are using CPANEL with a third party slave DNS, and you see in your /var/log/message that external zone transfer are denied. Oct 19 13:05:08 your_server_name named[18147]: client slave_DNS_IP#59149 (your_web_site): view external: zone transfer ‘your_web_site/AXFR/IN’ denied Solution: Edit /etc/named.conf, and replace allow-transfer    { “NONE”; }; with allow-transfer    { slave_DNS_IP; }; Then reboot your DNS server with service named restart and you should be ready to go !
