Hello all I have set up my Bind DNS Server on debian Linux. The localhost is the DNS server. On the local network everything works fine. I can ping the various zones which have been created. I have a static IP address which I have registerd my domain name, DNS4you.co.za. When I ping DNS4you.co.za, it pings fine. Now I want to use my own DNS server to registar domains with our South African registrar. When I submit the form, the Registrar reports that No Records found in your nameserver for the domain you wish to register. Could someone help me here please?
My second POST:
I was perhaps not too clear. Firstly I had already registered dsn4u.co.za using a private company’s two nameservers. In other words, dsn4u.co.za points this company’s servers. This company in turn points to my fixed IP address.
Thus when you ping dsn4u.co.za it now actually point right down to my router. My router in turn now points to the localhost which is running the Bind DNS.
Now what I intend to do is add domains in my DNS server, eg: cakes.co.za, bread.co.za, fish.co.za. Once they are added, I will now submit to Uniforum (South African Registrar) my two nameservers as the Primary and Secondary for the respective domains (cakes.co.za, bread.co.za, fish.co.za.)
I assume that I will have to create something like: ns1. dsn4u.co.za and ns2.dsn4u.co.za
The end result is that I can host my own DNS server as well as my own multi homed webserver on the same premises. My problem is that how do I create these two nameservers? I believe that you should have two separate IP addresses, but they did inform me that you could do it with two IP addresses on the same network. And what records does the Registrar require. I hope that I have explained myself
My third post Hi Zeyne Thank you once again. Your question "Do you need your DNS server dns4u to be authoritative ( the one, which will point a domain into an IP) for the zone cakes.co.za? " Yes, this is exactly what I wish to accomplish, dns4u to be authoritative for cakes.co.za or any other domain I wish to register Cna anyone please help me here. I am stuck
