Thread: Domain Names

  1. #1

    Default Domain Names

    Hello all. I am new to openSUSE and have little experience with linux. I have dabbled in the past with Redhat years ago and Gentoo for a short while.

    I am all about learning things and need a point in the right direction.

    I want to host a shoutcast radio program for a friend. I got that all setup and working (exept cant figure out how to get server to start at system startup-but thats a different topic)

    Anyways, I want to host a webserver as well to go along with the radio station. I got apache running, PHP going and Mysql going..All without a hitch

    I have never used BIND or have any experience with domain names. I started reading about it but it said i would need a box for my webserver and 2 boxes for nameservers... Problem- I only have one.

    Can i run BIND on the same box as Webserver? or if there is something better i should look into please inform

    thanks all

    Yes, of course. But why two boxes for nameservers? Get someone else to be your secondary if that what you mean.

    You tell the domain registrar to point to your nameserver to resolve names in his domain. However you need a static address for the nameserver. And registrars will require a secondary.

    You can also outsource domain name resolution you know.
