    I am trying to install the Unbound DNS Server by following the guide here ->

    I am a little confused about the configuration. What I am trying to do is host my "" on my own server with ip address. So, I need to create 2 name servers like this:

    So, in my unbound dns server configuration file, I have the following setting. Is this correct?

    Is this correct? Or have I gone wrong somewhere?

    When I try to run the unbound dns server, I get the following error:

    # unbound -c /var/unbound/unbound.conf
    [1221350442] unbound[7648:0] error: bind: address already in use
    [1221350442] unbound[7648:0] fatal error: could not open ports

    I already opened port 53 tcp/udp on my iptables firewall like this:

    # iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 53 -j ACCEPT
    # iptables -A INPUT -p udp --dport 53 -j ACCEPT

    So, any idea?

    It's alright, i gave up on it. My site was down for quite some time while i was trying to figure out this nameserver, so I used Godaddy's "TotalDNS" feature and got it sorted.
