Ok. leaving the previous Idea behind. I'm settling for mixed servers (my server as primary and godady's as secondary) Under godaddy's DNS control I only have: A record of mydomain.com to my public IP. A record of myserver to my public IP Also Godaddy has my server and one of its own dns servers set as primary and secondary respectively. Under my server's DNS settings I have: A records www, mail, myserver... all these records pointing to my public IP MX record myserver.mydomain.com CNAME pop3 and smtp pointing to myserver.mydomain.com I have my server and godaddy's as primary and secondary DNS server. It seems like, when I try to browse to "www.mydomain.com", I don't get the page unless I add A record www to the godaddy DNS zone. Also "intodns.com" tells me it didn't find any MX records or www records when I have them binded in my server.... And intodns.com tells me godaddy's dns server is primary and mine secondary.
