centos 4 & bind


Ive installed centos - Ive had a web hosting company lock the server down for me - but now I am stuck

Im about to move my web address - onto the server... ok straight forward enough - usually just tell my registrar the new name servers - but...

My server is collocated and so is using the name servers of the DC.

My question is - do I need to setup a 'named' service on my server and then point my domain to those name servers? ie

Does this mean installing bind?

Thanks for any light anyone can shed on this - the web hosting company have told me that it will take too long to do without CPANEL installed - and I really dont want to bother with CPANEL because its only really for one domain - the others will just be my blog etc...

Thanks in advance,

You shouldn't need your own name servers, and if you do want your own, you need two separate name servers (one primary, one backup). If your hosying provider/colo facility won't let you use their DNS servers, there's always something like zoneedit that you can use.

I'll have a go at using the DC's name servers

Then I suppose all I have to do is add a record in my httpd.conf?

Thanks btmiller
