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


Hi,

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 dyndns.org 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 dyndns.org?

I use Register.com and web.com for site 1 and 2, respectively. How do I tell web.com- "here is my web server over here!" Web.com 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?

Thanks,

Vince

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 web.com to point to your ip address, forward your ip. Do they have an option to forward site2.com to your router's ip address?

Setup dyndns to have two other hosts.

ns1.domain1.com
ns2.domain1.com

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 domain2.com.
Set web.com to point to ns1.domain1.com and ns2.domain1.com as the authoritative nameservers for domain2.com.

Hope that helps.
