Well, it would be useless to host your own DNS if you only have one IP. Plus, you are not on a permanent connection, so if your dial-up link is off, your DNS is dead. To answer your question, yes it is possible, but I see no advantage of doing it.

For ISDN modem recommendation, if you check on www.pcmag.com, Pc Magazine review a few ISDN modem while ago, also check www.pcworld.com. I cannot recommend a specific modem as I don't know what's your price range, what you need ... etc. Take a look at those sites, it will give you the details you need to make an informed decision.

Arrr, sorry, I forgot to said. I'm base on a ISDN permanent connection, not a on demand one. I want to host a DNS server because i want the capability to route multiples domain over this single line.

Is it really possible to host a DNS server with only one IP ? How should i do with the secondary DNS server ? Put it the same machine or must have others to help?
