How to set up your own DNS

Interesting piece that explains DNS (domain name system) in great detail and shows the hierarchy in which to set up a DNS server. This doesn’t quite give the actual commands but gives you a detailed look at how DNS functions and how to set up your own DNS server to work within the great inner-clockwork of the Internet.

  • I can give mad props for running your own DNS. I’ve been doing it for years… mainly because ISP’s DNS servers are crap at best.
    Yesterday Network Solutions (a.k.a. Versign) had a blip and killed off DNS resolutions through their name servers… so we’re setting up in house Name servers and regular DNS servers at work now. It really is pretty simple, you just have to be patient.
