this is what google is saying.............
Over the last 24 hours, Googlebot encountered 1 errors while attempting to retrieve DNS information for your site. The overall error rate for DNS queries for your site is 100.0%.

You can see more details about these errors in Webmaster Tools.

Recommended action
If the site error rate is 100%:

Use a WHOIS tool to verify that http://www.dublincarpentry.com/ has a proper whois record and that nameservers are configured for the site. If not, contact your domain registrar to update your whois records.
Using a DNS lookup tool, verify that the nameserver's name can be resolved to an IP address. If not, either update your whois record to contain an IP address for your nameserver, or update the DNS records for nameserver.
Using a DNS lookup tool, verify that http://www.dublincarpentry.com/ can be resolved to an IP address. If it can't, update the DNS record for http://www.dublincarpentry.com/ on your nameserver.

If the site error rate is less than 100%:

The most likely explanation is that your nameserver is overloaded. Contact your hosting provider and discuss the configuration of your DNS server and the possibility of allocating more resources to your DNS service.
If your site redirects to another hostname, another possible explanation is that a URL on your site is redirecting to a hostname that has a DNS problem. Consider checking the links to which your site redirects and make sure that the sites in your redirect links don't have any DNS issues.

The most likely reason is that your domain was suspended, but since you've now verified the domain, you can check it again.

garrett5537,

I think you may be inappropriately using the term sub-domains when referring to something else. Can you clarify what you are clicking on or referring to?

:Edit Domain Contact Information

Please review the domain registration contact information as listed in the WHOIS database and make changes as necessary. Click the 'save' button to save your changes. Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*).

Domain Name: dublincarpentry.com
Apply this contact information to all domains in my account.

ok so all i can do is check the contact info on this domain, there are two sub domains before i open this :
dublincarpentry.com
Site
dublincarpenters
Change Site Association
Subdomains
www
dublincarpenters
View
site
dublincarpenters
View
add a new subdomain
Domain Control
Edit contact info
Edit your nameservers
Edit Domain Locking
Advanced DNS settings
Email your authorization code
Delete Domain

There is no option to open up these two domains to check the contact info for each one ,,, i thought it would be in view but that brings me to the web page

The subdomains do not have separate contact information. As long as you update the contact information the domain name, that is all that is necessary.

Link sharing may or may not be a good idea. A good rule of thumb is to try and get as many backlinks as possible, but it is generally best if you get them from sites that have higher traffic, and higher page ranks than your own, which can be difficult. Can you clarify your question regarding external DNS?
