I'm in need of networking expert help.
I have a server (CentOS) with private nameservers. The nameservers are pointing to my server. I have several domains that I set DNS to point to my private nameservers. I am using webmin for server configs and editing some configs with vim in /etc/.. Using bind8 (with webmin module) for domain names to resolve correctly and sites to be accessible by name and not ip.
This setup is working fine, however I want to get rid of BIND and having all the zones on my server. Instead I would like to manage all the zones by 3rd party management tool (GoDaddy Premium DNS). This way I can have all the zones in one place and have multiple servers in future with 1 central place for zones etc.
What do I need to do this? and how? I have few ideas but do not want to mess with it unless I know for sure... Some domain are live and are getting good traffic. Have to do it as fast as possible.
Here are some of my ideas:
- There are A records for private nameservers under my main domain. E.g. ns1.example.com & ns2.example.com. Will changing the IP Address for this A record to 3rd party DNS Server IP work? And then configure zones there... Basically instead of doing directly to my server it will go to 3rd party DNS server and then to my server.
- Set up DNS resolver on the server to use 3rd party server... If this is the case, where do I start.
