Installing MyDNS-NG & MyDNSConfig On Debian Squeeze

Installing MyDNS-NG & MyDNSConfig On Debian Squeeze

This tutorial will describe how to install and configure MyDNS-NG and MyDNSConfig 3 on Debian Squeeze. MyDNS-NG is a DNS server that uses a MySQL database as backend instead of configuration files. The advantage is that MyDNS simply reads the records from the database, and it does not have to be restarted/reloaded when DNS records change or zones are created/edited/deleted. A secondary nameserver can be easily set up by installing a second instance of MyDNS that accesses the same database or, to be more redundant, uses the MySQL master / slave replication features to replicate the data to the secondary nameserver.

To do this, you need one server with ISPConfig 3 installed and a Fast hosts account.

BIND is alternative software for translating domain names into IP addresses. Because domain names are alphabetic, they are easier to remember. So if we will browse the Internet we don’t need to remember IP addresses. For example, the domain name www.yourdomain.com might translate to 192.168.0.1.
