    Hi,
    I have one server, and I am trying to setup something like this:

    host name: domain.com
    dns server ns1.domain.com

    now, during a lookup for domain.com, ns1.domain.com will be needed, which in turn again require domain.com.

    I am not sure how this can work.
    if I add ns1.domain.com to the dns server running on my server, how will it be resolved by someone?

    I read something about glue records, but it's not clear to me which server should accept the glue record for ns1.domain.com -> ip-address.

    can anyone shed some light on this? :)

    Thanks.

    The glue record has to be added by the company where you bought the domain name and not in your own dns server.

    Thanks Till,
    it's not clear to me how that would work.

    my domain is from goddaddy, and in the godaddy administration panel I can enter the host name for my dns servers, not the ip.

    so, if I put ns1.domain.com there, how will anyone be able to resolve ns1.domain.com ?
