I am plowing ahead, trying to set up a web server. I want to host multiple domains on MY Server. (I am currently using someone else's to host 80+ of my client's sites).
I want / need my own ns record so that when a client enters my ns record into their DNS record that their domain name will go to my server.
I need help understanding and configuring and somehow registering NS & DNS records so that they actually will point to my server.
I have a domain name registered with network solutions, crestonehosting.com.
I have setup A records with ns1 & ns2 crestonehosting.com as my static IPs
see configuration example at
so now, with a test domain, wacreations.com, I have entered in ns1.crestonehosting.com as the first DNS record, and it accepted it. When I tried to enter ns2.crestonehosting.com, it rejected it. Reason - it is not registered.
so ... I need some help here trying to understand how to properly setup the ns records so that they point to the correct IPs
here is what I get with dig for crestonehosting.com - which makes me think - should I set myself up as the DNS server - my Server OSX software is supposed to do that ...
