At the moment I have a couple of domain names, one run entirely by yourselves on Server 23 which over the last two years has been fantastic. Rock Sign The other just used to link to my home IIS which I used for a simple University project, this is done by using ZoneEdits free DNS services. Now I’m out of University I’ve put it to other uses and decided it would be better to have its own dedicated machine and while I’m there it might as well have its own DNS.
I understand most of the principles involved but, what I don’t understand is what I enter into the DNS properties of my domain. The whole idea is to convert the domain name virtual-eye.co.uk to the IP address 184.108.40.206. What I don’t understand is why most DNS servers are at NS1.domainname.com and such, surely that’s complicating things and making the machine have to run two DNS lookups? And how am I meant to set up the DNS for virtual-eye.co.uk and also NS1.virtual-eye.co.uk on the same machine.
I’ve looked through a lot of guides and tutorials on DNS but no one explains in enough details, they’re aimed at the curious not someone who is trying to implement it themselves. Mad!!!
I’m sure someone here can help me to understand the principle as long as they have the time to write the reply. :hug:
Thanks for any help,
I’m going to be using Windows Server 2003 DNS and IIS.
