setting up bind


Ok I want to setup my domain name to use the primary nameserver for the domain, example:

domain: example.com

primary dns: ns1.example.com

Ok so godaddy wants me to point my DNS to a custom name server, but how do I point it to a hostname that doesnt already exist until I point it to my nameserver? If I put the IP in it says invalid input on their website, what gives?

I've emailed them and they are clueless. What you are looking for is a glue record but from what i've seen godaddy doesnt support them. I emailed them a few times and all they've done is respond with a canned email saying to look at their docs. Their docs say nothing of this. I basically gave up.

What i ended up doing is finding a free service that will be a backup dns server to me, and then set that server to pull updates from my dns server. After that i told godaddy that my primary dns server is the free service ones. Sort of a workaround but it does work.

hehe ya I was actually thinking about having my friend be primary and have him slave off mine then when my record for ns1.example.com is a known record I'll try putting it in their damn set nameserver webpage.

I guess thats what we get for going with the cheapest registrar

i run bind 8x so im not sure it will work under 9 but here is the syntax i use:

zone "foo.com" {
type slave;
masters 10.1.2.3;
file "db.foo.com";
};


that should go into your named.conf file.
