I have for a long time had my own "play-around" domain kaareskovgaard.net where I've had a minor blog running. I recently decided that I wanted to try to run my own server on it, and so I ordered a VPS for it. I have managed to relocate my site to the new server now, setting appropriate DNS records with my old providers DNS. However I would like to move the DNS to my server. I HAVE installed a DNS server on the VPS and tested that it works as it should (using nslookup and specifying which server to use).
Here is what I don't get though:
When I ask to change nameservers for my domain, and I change it to, say "srv01.kaareskovgaard.net" for my DNS - how is this going to be translated into an IP - when the record for this is on the exact same DNS server?
I suspect there's some reverse DNS going on here, but how does this work, and is there anything I need to do to make this work, and most importantly, is this possible at all?
