    DNS Help


    Hi,

    I have a 7.1 redhat linux server
    and I just bought a domainname.
    Can someone please tell me or point
    me somewhere that will show me what I
    need to do to be able to have
    my domain ex) www.mydomain.com be
    able to be accessed from the web.
    I am quite comfortable with running
    my own web server. But other then
    that I guess I need to use bind,
    and then point my domain name
    provider(verio) to my local bind server?

    Thanks so much!

    First off, start here and learn how to post a descriptive subject title. This is DNS forum, we all know you need help in DNS, so using DNS Help is absolutely useless.

    >> Can someone please tell me

    Can't tell as there are too much to tell, unless you have something specific.

    >> or point me somewhere

    >> I am quite comfortable with running

    You need TWO static IPs or be able to find someone to do secondary for you.

    >> I guess I need to use bind

    BIND is the most insecure and shi_tty software on earth, don't use it if at all possible. Start here then here to find out more.
