comment Is it bad to use swap with SSD when running a server out of memory?
@BadrHari If it's swap thrashing it will suffer, if you have a situation where something can be swapped out but not be swapped back in in the near term it can be fine. (As the answer says, "RAM and SSD are orders of magnitude different in speed.)

comment Is it valid to have several IP addresses resolving back (PTR) to one name that doesn't match either of the relevant A records?
I think what is wrong, or at the very least in conflict with intended use, is that this name (if I read the question right) may not exist at all, much less be the primary hostname as per rfc1035 ("Address nodes are used to hold pointers to primary host names in the normal domain space.")

Well, already RFC1035 said "Address nodes are used to hold pointers to primary host names in the normal domain space." which implies the expectation of matching address records. (That is one of the early standards track DNS documents.)

comment Chrome on Android random red HTTPS
@LouisMatthijssen I don't see why it would care about the signature algorithm of a root certificate, though. I still hope that whatever information is visible when validation fails would include some hint as to what the actual problem is. (Both root certificates have the same key? Are you positive?)

comment Create 2 DNS names for 2 domains on one static IP - Ubuntu
A hostname and a zone are not the same, you're actually talking about zones. As for the formatting, there's obviously no requirement to have each zone definition on a single line (could be rather long for zone definitions where many options are set).
