    Is BIND9 necessary if I'm currently resolving my servers domain using NO-IP?

    I have the server setup to statically connect to my router, however my IP address after the router is very much dynamic which is why I'm currently using NO-IP.

    The general plan is to set the server up for Virtual hosting.

    Can anyone give me a general run down on how to use Quota for limiting a Virtual users space?

    Thank you!

    Put the /home directory on its own partition and then setup user and group quota's on that

    All the virtual users you create should have a home directory on that partition in that way u can set quotas for them

    If you deliver mail to the spool file in /var consider setting quota on that partition as well.

    Thank you for the information, I was actually concidering trying to put users into a /var/public_html/$USER/www directory but I think just using the default layout of linux might be the better bet. Plus it seems that its supported more that way.

    You wouldn't by chance know about my bind question?
