DNS Configuration for domain name RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there, 

    I am new with this story. Could someone tell me how do I have to configure the Domain Name Provider records to tell this domain name to use my private DNS Server? Is it only a host A record with my external IP Address? If yes, do I need to forward the Port 53 to the internal IP Address of the DNS Server? thanks! I appreciate your help!

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your question.

    I don't quite understand what you mean. Please correct me if I misunderstood your question.

    The solution I can give is to use  DNS policy for split-brain deployment.

    Please refer to the links below:

    Use DNS Policy for Split-Brain DNS Deployment

  • Hi Travis, 

    thanks for your answer. I am sorry if it was not clear. What I need is really basic. What you sent me is talking about more than a DNS server and what I need is just the most basic structure to create a Homelab. I just need to point the domain name I just bought to be controlled from my Windows DNS Server. I want to control DNS from my DNS Server and not from the website where I bought the Domain Name. Would I need to forward any ports in the firewall as well?

    thanks for your help!

    Carles.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Your problem has nothing to do with the firewall.What you need to do is point the DNS server address of the domain name to your own DNS server.

    First, First, you need a public IP for the NS(Name Server).

    Second, you need to register your DNS server(NS) with the ISP.

    Last, point the DNS server address of the domain name to your own DNS server.

    Please modify it according to the features of your domain provider.

    Best regards,

    Travis

  • Hi Travis, 

    many thanks for your answer. Just let me check, to be sure:

    1- I have the public IP address of my DNS Server.

    2- I created a ns register into the domain name provider (website).

    3. Point the DNS server address (the one in the Provider(website)?) of the domain to your DNS Server.

    Thank you!

    Carles.
