FREE DNS???





k_s_baskar
Hi,

I want to create mx records and ns recards but i did't have dns control for my domains (But i can able to change my nameserver records).

I came to know that some websites providing free DNS service even the domain was not purchased from them. (without transfering the domains from the current registrar). Can anybody suggest me best FREE DNS providers list?

Thanks in advance.

I don't believe you can set up a DNS server on a dynamic IP address, as the actual server's IP address needs to be registered with the Registry.

As I said above, I'd suggest EveryDNS.net. They don't have any bandwidth limit, you're just limited to a maximum of 20 domains, and 200 records (donating to them removes all restrictions).

i had just use everyDNS.net but i have s problem with setting up records. everytime when i wanna add a record, it will say error. and it say some kind like "dot quad needed..."
cvkien
ops... i think i had solve the problem. Anyway, i had another question, coz of i'm new to everyDNS.net, so, there are some features i still didn't know yet. So, i would like to know can i point my subdomain to http://sub.example1.com at the same time i make it dynamic domain? Just now i was trying to set it but it only can use either 1 isn't it?

So you want your domain to be normal (static), and a subdomain to be dynamic? Just add the subdomain as a new domain, and make it dynamic. For example, if you want sub.example1.com to be dynamic, you'd put sub.example1.com into the 'Add new domain:' box, and choose the 'Make domain dynamic.' option.

Hope this helped you Smile

Well first get a static LOCAL IP address. (All instructions are for windows XP)
1) Go into the Control Panel.
2) Bring up the network connections option.
3) Right-click on the connection which refers to the connection to your router and click "properties". If you have a wireless router, it will say "wireless".
4) Click on Internet Protocol then click properties.
5) Click on "use the following IP address" then fill in exactly what your dynamic IP was when you started.
6) Your "preferred DNS server" is probably exactly what your IP address was before as well, except that the last number is always 1. (correct me if I'm wrong here)
7) Now change the last number of your IP address to whatever you want as long as it's from 1-255.
8) Make Default gateway the same as your preferred DNS server.
9) Make the Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
10) Click OK.

Now just click on [this link] to find out what your public IP address is. This will be the one you need.

5) Click on "use the following IP address" then fill in exactly what your dynamic IP was when you started.

Just to clarify, this means your local IP address. It will be something like:

  • 10.x.x.x
  • 172.16.x.x
  • or 192.168.x.x


This will differ depending on your network structure. However, most home networks use 192.168.0.x or 192.168.1.x. To find your current IP address, click Start --> Run and type in 'CMD'. Once the Command Prompt window comes up, type in 'ipconfig' and press Enter. The output will be something like:
Code:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

        Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.2.0.1
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.0.0.0
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.1.0.1

In my case, I have the IP address of 10.2.0.1. Get your current IP address, and set your network adapter to always use this IP address (follow the steps by Fire Boar)

6) Your "preferred DNS server" is probably exactly what your IP address was before as well, except that the last number is always 1. (correct me if I'm wrong here)

Nope. The 'DNS Server' is the server used to look up domain names. This will be provided to you by your ISP (for example, mine are 203.12.160.35 and 203.12.160.36). If you don't know, use 4.2.2.2 (this is the root server, and should always work)

7) Now change the last number of your IP address to whatever you want as long as it's from 1-255.

Well, technically, it's from 1 - 254, and .1 is usually taken by the router. If it's a 10.x.x.x network, you can use 10.[anything].[anything].[anything]. Likewise, if it's a 172.16.x.x network (which is rare), you can use 172.16.[anything].[anything]. A 192.168.x.x network is 192.168.[x].[anything], with [x] having the same value on all of your network devices.

Cool Make Default gateway the same as your preferred DNS server.

Again, the default gateway is not usually the DNS server. On the ipconfig output (see above), you'll see the setting to use for the gateway Smile

Quote:
9) Make the Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0

The subnet mask depends on your network structure

  • Class A local address scheme (10.x.x.x): Subnet mask is 255.0.0.0
  • Class B local address scheme (172.16.x.x): Subnet mask is 255.255.0.0
  • Class C local address scheme (192.168.x.x): Subnet mask is 255.255.255.0

This is without taking into account subnetting (which is beyond the scope of this exercise)

Now just click on [this link] to find out what your public IP address is. This will be the one you need.

The one problem with that link is if you're using a proxy, it doesn't show the correct IP (for example, it shows 202.7.176.130 for me, but that's the IP of my proxy. I suggest you use http://whatismyipaddress.com/ , which will show output like:

Quote:

Proxy Server Detected!

Proxy Server IP address: 202.7.176.131
Proxy Server Details: 1.1 nme-pow-pr2.tpgi.com.au:3128 (squid/2.5.STABLE1)

Proxy Reports IP as: 220.244.2**.***
(Unable to confirm.)

In this case, the 'Proxy Reports IP as' is your real IP address.

I think that [url]dns.afraid.org[/url] is a good one overall ..

However It is not better than Zone Edit and uni.cc in my opinion.
