Resolving Domains Internally And Externally With Bind9 And Caching Nameserver

Resolving Domains Internally And Externally With Bind9 And Caching Nameserver

Some times, we are required to resolve our internal domains on a local nameserver and external (internet) domains on our ISP's nameserver. There are different solutions to this problem, but in this howto, we are going to solve it through configuring a combination of caching-nameserver and BIND 9.

How To Configure Dynamic DNS (Fedora Core 4 Setup)

How To Configure Dynamic DNS (Fedora Core 4 Setup)

In this howto we will learn how to build a Dynamic DNS Server. Normally when we configure DNS, we use static entries to resolve any FQDN. If we are using DHCP in our network which gives dynamic IPs to every computer that turns on or requests one, then it is not possible to configure DNS statically. For that we should configure our DNS with DHCP in a manner that whenever a computer gets a new IP, its FQDN will be automatically updated with the new IP in DNS.

[Debian Sarge] Installing A Bind9 Master/Slave DNS System

[Debian Sarge] Installing A Bind9 Master/Slave DNS System 

In this howto we will install 2 bind dns servers, one as the master and the other as a slave server. For security reasons we will chroot bind9 in its own jail.
Using two servers for a domain is a commonly used setup and in order to host your own domain you are required to have at least 2 domain servers. If one breaks, the other can continue to serve your domain.

How To Run Your Own Name Servers With ISPConfig And GoDaddy

How To Run Your Own Name Servers With ISPConfig And GoDaddy

This tutorial shows how you can run your own name servers for domains that you register with GoDaddy. Of course, this works with every other registrar as well, although the procedure might differ a little bit.

To do this, you need two servers with two different public IP addresses and with ISPConfig installed, and of course a GoDaddy account.

Traditional DNS Howto

Traditional DNS Howto

Linux system administrators should learn traditional DNS. Front-ends and quick templates to setup domain records have a place in managing sites. When confronted with DNS configurations already in existence, nothing can substitute for knowing and using the fundamentals.

The vast majority of users on the Internet have no clue about DNS. They may have seen the term when they set up their ISP connection, but they do not realize its connection to their lives. Simply put, DNS servers allow you to use friendly names in your browser, email or other Internet applications to perform tasks which require IP addresses.

Two-in-one DNS server with BIND9

This tutorial shows you how to configure BIND9 DNS server to serve an internal network and an external network at the same time with different set of information. To accomplish that goal, a new feature of BIND9 called view is used. As a tutorial it'll walk you through the whole set up, but initial knowledge of BIND and DNS is required, there are plenty of documents that cover that information on the Internet.

Replacing ms dns with bind9

Isc Bind 9 for windows


Replacing ms dns with bind9 is an better idea here is why:
1.It's really faster (noticed when i run first query on that machine and had lower latency)
2.Better security (windows2k is not supported with patches in future)
3.You can migrate easily to linux after that ;)

Download from isc.org unzip it and run the installer (bindinstaller.exe) from inside directory

OK, this is the last DNS article... for a while, at least.

This article will show you how to build a complete DNS System with Debian. This includes a Master server, a Slave server, DDNS, and a bunch of DNSSEC. I'll be using BIND 9 for the server.
