Setting up a DNS Server for the webserver


Hey guys its me again, My web server has been going strong for a few months now and thats good. The problem I have is that on my domain that I bought, since I don't have a DNS Server I have to instruct my Domain to redirect to the servers IP and port, and this causes confusion among my users and makes webcrawlers go insane.


Server is running kubuntu linux and apache HTTP server and GPROFTPD FTP server.



Thanks

its basically setup to foward traffic to the domain to my servers IP so instead of my domain being in the address bar after you type in into the web browser, it fowards to my IP because of my lack of a DNS server.

That doesn't really add a lot, but have you looked at a commercial solution like www.zonedit.com? They will serve 5 domains for free as I recall (as nameserver that is)
