Hey Jermey,
I have a question I want to host my own webpage using apache, But I need someone to do DNSing. I noticed that you use GraniteCanyon for your dnsing. I am way new to this and I dont know how to sign up with them.
here is the example that they want from me: IN NS IN NS

; multiple RP records authorize others to submit zone changes
; from the email address in the first field after the RP
; This email address is in DNS-email format. That is,
; the '@' (at-sign) is replaced by '.' (dot or period.) IN RP IN RP IN TXT "Juan Valdez, NIC handle: JUAN123" IN TXT "Juanita Valdez, RIPE NIC handle: JUANITA"

; addresses for the canonical names
; Many emailers expect the name localhost to exist
; in a domain with this specific, reserved address.
; 127/8 or 127/ is the address of LOOPBACK-NET
; is reserved to mean this host on the LOOPBACK-NET IN A

; The IP addresses below are reserved for networks
; not connected to the InterNet. They are not routable by
; most publicly accessible backbones and are here as an
; example only. IN A

; some useful puns that cannot be CNAMEs because
; they are referenced by MX records, below IN A IN A

; an address for the zone itself IN A

; Aliases
; These create a nickname or alias for another name known
; to the DNS, the canonical name, hence CNAME. No other
; records may exist with a name the same as this alias.

; 'Java' is an alias for the canonical name, 'Navy.' IN CNAME IN CNAME IN CNAME

; MX records

; These direct mail delivery agents, like sendmail,
; at hosts which have agreed to accept email for us.

; This assumes that we've arranged with and
; to provide this email service for us in
; advance for

; The token 'EXTREF' directs nslint to allow external references.
; The token 'GLOBALOK' directs nslint to allow global records.

; MX records for a host to be treated specially IN MX 10 ; EXTREF IN MX 20 ; EXTREF IN MX 100 ; EXTREF

; global MX records for unspecified members of the zone

; MX records for email addressed to the zone itself IN MX 10 IN MX 20 IN MX 100 ; EXTREF

what should I change so it will work with me?

(sorry so dence) domain name is

You would want something like this:
Code: IN NS IN NS IN RP youremail.address IN TXT "Info you want to give" IN A IN A your.ip.address IN MX 10 whoever.does.your.mail IN MX 100 secondary.mail (if you have one)

; Finally any aliases that you want IN CNAME
