One thing I must mention. I have had dns admins look over some of my zone files and have gotten a royal chewing out for some things I see in this zone file.
@ IN SOA malaria.borgnet.us. hostmaster.borgnet.us. (
00000005; Serial Number (not a date)
21600 ; Refresh every 6 hours
3600 ; Retry every hour
1728000 ; Expire every 20 days
21600 ) ; Minimum 6 hours
IN NS malaria.borgnet.us.
IN MX 10 engram.borgnet.us.
IN A 18.104.22.168
The NS and MX records shouldn't give away the real hostname of the computer running it.
IN NS ns0.borgnet.us.
.borgnet.us. IN A 22.214.171.124
ns0 IN A 126.96.36.199 ; IP of the nameserver
In this case there is an "A" record to define where ns0 is and you point your ISP or registrar towards ns0 at the IP 188.8.131.52 This will give glue between the two yet not give away your host name "malaria". The same is true of MX.
IN MX 10 mail0.borgnet.us.
mail0 IN A XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX ; IP of the mail server
The least I can do is save someone from some of the ass-chewings that I received.
