dns servers?


hi, I run an apache 1.3 server, mysql and proftpd on debian 3.1 for a few friends, but the domains that they use are forwarded using frames to my IP address, so they are not able to type www.domain.com/folder. My registrar won't allow the use of IP addresses as name servers, so how can I setup domain servers for them?

Thanks

use a third party dns host, like zoneedit.com

Or ask the current registrar to play DNS for the domain.

TIP:
They need to create a wildcard A record pointing to your ip address.
that way you can enter everything before the domain.com and it all goes to your address. (e.g. www.domain.com -> your ip | blablabla.domain.com -> your ip.)
Also.. if you want to run mail for the domain... let de DNS admin create the correct MX records (pointing to your ip).
