Subject: How to control own domain/zonefile ?
Ok, say I register foo.com, and I have my own linux box with
installed, and I want to use that to control my own domain,
using zoneedit.com or whatever DNS applet a registrar might
other words, I can setup a zonefile easily enough, but that
so long as one manually points nslookup or dig to said linux
How do I make it world accessible, so to speak? I know I can
name servers for the domain via the registrar control panel?
Is this all
there is to it? I get the feeling there is more. And what if
registrar doesn't have such an applet?
I doubt this is possible, but is there any way to manually
domain myself withotu going through one of those registrars?
most cost only $10 USD, which makes me think that it doesn't
them anything, thus making profit on all those $10
Basically, eliminate the middle man. I mean, how EXACTLY does
registrar register the domain you pick via their website?
I also want to be able to control reverse dns (PTR records)
normally one cannot when using a registrars.
I know there are "ROOT" name servers out there that control
TLDs, and so I figure there must be a way to directly
register a domain
in the area before the TLDs, or how ever the registrars do
Sorry, I know, I'm asking a lot of questions, but after doing
a lot of
searching, I can't really find much clarity on the matter,
someone can really clear this all up for me I hope.
