I dont see your name server listed for your domain in the WHOIS database..

are you wanting to use homelinux.net as your DNS server?  what is the 
address of your DNS server.. also.. I agree.. check with your ISP to see if 
they are blocking UDP port 53

The Registry database contains ONLY .COM, .NET, .EDU domains and
Hostway Whois Server Version 1.0
Domain Name: zdashi.com
   Registrar:   AAAQ.COM
   Whois Server: whois.aaaq.com
   Referral URL: http://www.aaaq.com
   Name Server: ns-bsd.homelinux.net
   Name Server: a.dns.hostway.net
   Status:      ACTIVE
