comment backuppc - how to backup remote (over the internet) clients?
@Scott: When you are editing the hosts configuration, the first screen is BackupSettings, and its first field is ClientNameAlias. That is "the alias".

comment DNS Configuration Help for dedicated hosting server
@Ubuntu User: First use /etc/init.d/bind9 stop. Then after a couple of days you can shut it down. You could also reconfigure you bind server as a caching only server. Your mail server doesn't depend on your bind, although it may be suggested. If you are receiving and filtering mail a local DNS cache is useful.

comment Use-case for iptables rule
@Michael: There may be a NAT rule for LAN based packets sent to the external IP (web, mail server, etc.). This would count those packets.

comment DNS Configuration Help for dedicated hosting server
@Ubuntu User: GoDaddy should be your SOA as they will be your authoritive name servers. Only A records should point at your name servers. The SPF records go with the A records they follow: mydomain.com, www.mydomain.com, and mail.mydomain.com. They allow mail from the MX (mail), none, and self. The MX record applies to mydomain.com.

comment DNS Configuration Help for dedicated hosting server
@Ubutu User: I would remove the double slashes from the first two nameservers. This will enable your providers nameservers. Add double slashes in front of the last nameserver. That nameserver will fail when you shut down the bind service.

@Ubuntu User: I added a suggested transitional db file and info on setting up at GoDaddy. GoDaddy won't use your db file, but you need to enter the information into their web interface.

comment DNS Configuration Help for dedicated hosting server
You need to ask your IP provider to set the PTR record for your mail server's ip address to point to mail.mydomain.com. They need to resolve as fbh described. Unless you have a globally routeable IPv6 address don't include an AAAA record. An unreachable AAAA record will make you unreachable from some (most) IPv6 capable systems. Unless you have another DNS server, you should use Godaddy to handle your DNS.
