Hello,

I currently have access to DNS services of a dedicated server. I need a secondary DNS to backup the server. If you have a dedicated and you can provide secondary DNS for me please contact me. In return I can set-up my server to act like secondary DNS for you.

My server is located in The Netherlands

Regards,

Dreas van Donselaar

Dreas,

Maybe you'd like to check out free secondary DNS at http://www.centralinfo.net - it might be of use if you don't get any responses (which would be surprising).

Centralinfo

Centralinfo.net does not act like a slave as far as I know. I would have to add each domainname manually. I also think there is a 20 domain limit at centralinfo.

I am sure there are many people out there that would also like to have a secondary DNS located elsewhere than their primairy DNS.

Regards,

Even if I could find you someone willing to trade DNS servers (they provide you, you provide them), it would have to be set up manually. I am not sure how to get it so that you don't have to do this (always wondered really)...

If this might be of interest, let me know and I'll see who I can dig up.

I am not a DNS expert but I think you have to add a slave zone to the DNS server. This slave zone will automatically gets it's information from the primairy DNS.

Hmmm, slave zone you say eh? Greek to me, will have to search for info unless anyone has a link to something on how to slave zone stuff... I always wondered how that end was accomplished. NOW, I still do

Yeah, you'd set up the slave zone/NS through BIND. You just need to copy named.conf, db.127.0.0, and db.cache from the primary NS, then you edit named.conf and db.127.0.0 to pull the slave records from the slave NS as necessary.

Chicken, try and borrow a copy of DNS & Bind (by Albitz and Liu, publisher : O'Reilly) from somewhere, then check pg.209, 213-214, or look in the index. There's sufficient info to get you working on it and the rest of the book is a gem.
