Personal Nameserver Guides

Below are links to tutorials on how to configure personal nameservers at various registrars. A personal nameserver allows you to use your server to do your DNS hosting. It is not vitally imprtant the domain you choose to serve as your nameserver so long as you have control over it and do not let it expire. The records themselves are generally created as and, however you can use whatever you see fit (i.e. ns100, ns101, etc.). Having two nameservers is considered standard, however more can be created as desired.

The idea behind configuring a personal nameserver at the registrar is that you create the aforementioned ns1 and ns2 records, for example, and you map each of those records to an IP address. The IP address in this case is the IP of your server with NDC Host, and it can be the same for both nameserver records.

The initial configuration process mentioned in the articles below only needs to be done once for the domain that is selected to serve as the personal (aka “master”) nameserver. Once this is done, you use these newly created entries as nameservers for your other domains as normal.
