- What is a glue record? 4 answers
I have a couple of domains (
def.com, ... ,
xyz.com) and I have a dns server (
ns2.example.com). All my domains use
ns2 dot example dot com as their name servers.
example.com uses Godaddy as its name servers. So far so good. Now I'm thinking whether I can use
example.com as its own ns servers? Could it cause any problem if I use a dns server to resolve itself? Can there be any chicken-or-egg paradox?
Thanks for pointing me to the glue record, but the answer to glue record still does not make much sense to me.
I found this article about Glue record that seems to make more sense to me: http://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/10297/DNS-Glue-WHAT-and-WHY.html
I recalled that when I started to setup my own dns server. I put in 3 records as Host Names in Godaddy, which is a 3 record map like this:
NS1: 22.214.171.124 NS2: 126.96.36.199 NS3: 188.8.131.52
Are these records considered glue records?
