I am a newbee and I just got a DS. I have created 2 nameservers on it with 2 IP addresses assigned to me. I have registered both the nameservers with my registrar. I used Cpanel/WHM to create nameservers on my DS box.
Then I poined my domain name with my registrar to my nameservers and when I use my domain name in the broswer, I can successfully open the site.
However, the firsttime I goto my site, the home page opens after a lot of delay. But once it is open all the other pages open really quick, including the home page.
This makes me believe that the DNS resolution is taking a lot of time. Can anyone help me as to what might be going wrong and what I should change to fix this?
I can provide more info if required. Also, is having our own nameserver on the DS a good idea? or should I use the hosting companies nameservers?
Took off 8 points for having no glue at a parent server [adds 2 extra packets to lookup].
Took off 6 points for having no glue for ns1.domain.org [adds 2 extra packets to lookup].
Took off 10 points since ns1.domain.org is an open DNS server (if abused, your DNS may be inaccessible, and over usage could result in slowdowns).
