I am building a Fedora Core 6 LAMP server following the guide from http://www.howtoforge.com/installing...dora_core_6_p1
I have registered and purchased a TLD: broadyswebdesign.com. I would like to host this as the primary site from this server. I also have a static IP address issued from my ISP
My query is reference nameservers. I just can't manage to get my head around it and understand it.
When following the guide from HowToForge it stated that on install I had to insert the Gateway, Primary DNS and Secondary DNS. Also to set the Hostname.
Following the HowToForge guide there are some examples of the Hostname, Gateway, Primary DNS and Secondary DNS. These are:
Gateway: 10.1.1.1 (My DLink Router)
Primary DNS: 184.108.40.206
Secondary DNS: 220.127.116.11
My questions are:
1. What is the "SERVER1" in front of the server1.broadyswebdesign.com"?
Can this be anything e.g zues.broadyswebdesign.com? What does this name mean? Is it the hostname?
2. The Primary DNS and Secondary DNS server IP Addresses. Where did these numbers come from? The two numbers above are an example that is used in the HowToForge guide. What DNS server IP addresses should I enter.
Also my Linux server has an internal IP address of 10.1.1.2. Is there anyway of me being able to view http://www.broadyswebdesign.com
inside my home network. When I try I usually end up at my router login page. If I try http://10.1.1.2
I end up viewing the correct page. (The Fedora test page).
Any help in helping me understand or a push in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
