How can i setup DNS server on my Centos 5.1

Post by fiftyCENTos » 2008/03/04 08:05:39

Hello Guys!,
I am a newbie baby in the world of Linux. Actually this is my 10th "bloody" day in studying and configuring CentOS 5.1. I was tasked to setup DNS server using Centos 5.1. Can anyone help me or give me some important basic tips for this task. Thank you and wishing to hear from you all guys soon!
By the way, this is also the 10th day that I completely dumped windows OS!!!! I am starting to love the tricky and complex world of Linux!

Start by reading the [url=http://langfeldt.net/DNS-HOWTO/BIND-9/]DNS Howto[/url]. Continue with the BIND Administrator Reference Manual that's included in the bind package.

Dnsmasq is another option. It can serve as a DNS server, a DHCP server, or both.

on this subject, as I too am doing this as a first timer....

situation: going to use standalone web server, going to colocate it in a datacenter and not at my house.


problem: should I put it in the colocation place first and then set up the dns and websites...since I cannot really do the ip addresses or tests until I get them and install it at the datacenter....OR.......... could I set it all up and test it here, using my ip address my router gave me and then change it to the proper ips once I install it at datacenter.


confused...thanks for any help

One can start by not hijacking a thread and instead posting a new question.
