Quite some time ago I recall going through a fairly long registration process through Network Solutions to register a primary dns server. It is my intent to continue managing DNS locally, but I do want to make sure that a new dns1.domain.com is indeed recognized and setup properly.
win2000 servers...exclusively btw.
My question are:
1. The domain itself is a CA domain (already setup), do I register the DNS server through my registrar or can I do it through another service like Network Solutions (as I did previously). The interface does not seem to exist there for doing this any more. Once the new primary is setup. it is my intent to update our hosted domains to the new primary and then retire the old one.
2. I have had a tough time finding an external secondary DNS service that we could afford. Is there any reason (besides redundancy) that I can not create an local secondary so that I at least have coverage if I loose my primary DNS server?
3. Any thoughts on planning out a strategy for this would be appreciated.
