- How are child nameservers resolved? 2 answers
In a domain name registrar you have the option to set name servers as such: ns1.example.com, etc. and you don't have to specify the IP address of the name servers.
Well, what if I create a set of name servers and have them set as someone else's domain?
What is stopping the domain name from resolving to the lookalike DNS servers I just created ?
Say you have a domain, peanuthead.com. You go to digital ocean and create two name servers with BInd9: ns1.peanuthead.com and ns2.peanuthead.com. you go back to your registrar and set your name servers to ns1.peanuthead.com and ns2.peanuthead.com. this means when you go to peanuthead.com it will query thoes dns servers.
What if someone randomly creates two name servers that you created, ns1.peanuthead.com and ns2.peanuthead.com? what stops the domain peanuthead.com from querying those name servers created by someone else?
