i just wanna ask that is there any free software that i can use to build a dns server i my own computer which i'm using a dynamic ip address connection. because i need it to point my domain to my own computer which i want to use it as my server. Thanks...
no, i mean i wanna set the dns services in my own computer because if i use those services you mention, i'll have limited bandwidth. so i just want to set up my own dns services so that my domain name i bought can straight away directed into my computer. or if i want to point the domain straight to my computer without going through other's services, what software i can use?
Remember, i had a dynamic ip address... so please help... thanks...
i'm using winxp & linux.
You really shouldn't run a DNS server with a dynamic IP address.
A: Get a static IP from your ISP
B: Set up a network with a separate DNS server that connects through your current PC to the internet, but has a static IP.
cvkien, are you intending to access your computer within your LAN, or from the Internet?
Free DNS services for dynamic IP mapping do not post a bandwidth issue. You only updates the free DNS service whenever your dynamic IP changes, which is not that frequent.
Clarify, and I am sure someone out here will be able to offer some help.
