I'm trying to run my own DNs servers using myDNS. I went on the How To Run Your Own Name Servers With ISPConfig And GoDaddy tutorial and did everything in the first page, creating entries for ns1.example.com & ns2.example.com as well as example.com to a third ip where the web/mail server is. At this point I installed two machines with Debian+MySQL+myDNS+MyDNSConfig, giving them ns1 & ns2 for host names and example.com for domain name during the installation. I have checked it up and it's all running good. I can log into MyDNSConfig web panels and make changes. BUT - what to put it ? Do I need to create SOA entries for example.com on both machines before I start filling entries for the rest of my domains ? When I go into the SOA zones and press the create new zone, what do I put in the Origin field ? is this where I put new domain names for the first time ? (mydomain.com) before I create it's other records ? In the "name server" field it say : ns1.example.com on ns1 but ns2.example.com on ns2. (this are the default entries I gave). Is this correct or is it better to have the same name server default on both machines ? Thank you in advance for the help.
