DNS, Dynamic IP address and and ISP
If somebody can read through this long question and help me out, I would be grateful.
I have RH 7.2, installed, up and running. I am connected to the internet via DSL. It is all working beautifully.
I want to register a domain name, but host the domain in my pretty Linux box, with web server, email, ftp and all the other goodies. This is where I start having problem, since I do not fully comprehend its implications.
These are things that I think I need
1. A domain name. I can register with any company (not necessarily my ISP). The average price of a domain name registration I have seen is $35/year. Not bad if no hidden charges....
2. I need to run a DNS on my machine. I am ready for this since I read "Nicolai Langfeldt (dns-howto(at)langfeldt.net), Jamie Norrish and others "
The big question is.
Do I need a Dynamic DNS provider, since my IP address is going to be dynamic.? OR I will be okay with points 1 and 2 above?
What else do I need to host my domain?
Any advice would be appreciated
