Because I'm relatively inexperienced in working with a VPS, please bear with me for this question.
I am currently in the process of migrating my website from NearlyFreeSpeech to prgmr, and all I have left to do is set up nameservers on my VPS and transfer the domain. Here is where I run into trouble.
I've tried looking up how to create public DNS nameservers on Google, but the little information I found wasn't so useful (setting up private nameservers is all I get). So far, I've created a new nameserver in
bind and set up a zone file for it, but it doesn't work, so I'll probably scrap it.
Here's what I need to know: is there any documentation on how to do this? Is there a guide or tutorial I can follow to do what I need to do? I'm looking to set up two nameservers (
bind, and then set them as the nameservers for my domain on NearlyFreeSpeech. So far, everything I've found has been less than useful, so any information on the topic would be a great help.
As an addendum: I have very little control over DNS in NearlyFreeSpeech (I can't edit the config file directly, only use a preconfigured web page to manage it), so please take that into account...
