Question Config registar DNS to point to my public IP for web site


I have Apache 2.0 running on FC 2. There are 2 web sites running on the web server. Site number 1 is registered and DNS then points the web address to which knows my static IP address.

Site number 2 is registered. I want to point DNS queries to my Static IP address. How do I do this without going through

I use and for site 1 and 2, respectively. How do I tell "here is my web server over here!" only has setting for DNS server by name, not IP. My router runs DNS, but does not have a host name. I have NAT pointing to my internal DNS server, but I can't see it from the Internet.

Anyone have any tips on how to direct DNS queries to my web sites?

If you have an internal DNS server and have allowed port 53 from your router to your internal DNS server, then people should be able to query your DNS server - unless your ISP has blocked inbound port 53. To check, telnet your external ip address to port 53 to see if you get an accepted connection.

As for to point to your ip address, forward your ip. Do they have an option to forward to your router's ip address?

have them setup with your static ip.

Setup a DNS server on your box and make sure to portforward tcp/udp 53 to it.
Setup your zone for

Hope that helps.
