    Many nameservers, one box

    Hey guys...


    I haven't every really messed with BIND or DNS so bear with me...

    I have my own dedicated server (if you haven't figured that out yet, LEAVE NOW) and want two domains with their own nameservers. How can set it up so:


    ns1.domain1.com \ ___________
    ns2.domain1.com / xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy

    ns1.domain2.com \ ___________
    ns2.domain2.com / xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy


    Where x IP is the same, and y IP is the same.



    I know its possible, as it can happen in reseller specific hosting. I understand it is better to use x and y for domain1, and v and w for domain 2, but I don't have the extra IPs.

    You don't have to assign an IP to a nameserver if you don't want, you can point a nameserver to an IP but you must register that nameserver at your registrar, some registrars don't allow multi-nameserver on a single IP but I know Enom does.

    Actually, Verisign was the last holdout on that (as far as I know), and they changed their policy sometime last year. You should have no problem aliasing multiple nameservers to the same IP Address.

    Actually, DomainNameSystems.com still requires it. I was with them before I became an OpenSRS reseller and they wouldn't let me point two different nameservers to a single IP.

    Can be done

    Step1 - make a copy of named.conf for the 2nd IP on your machine.
    Step2 - Under options section of it specify IP address to listen to and he root directory.
    Step3 - Make the correspopnding root dir.
    Step4 - Create another user (as it should'nt be run on root).
    Step5 - Just run the named command specifying the named comand and the user.

    Hope it helps. Or PM me to have a detailed expl.

    Bye
