DNS Management Software

is there a good software out there so i can manage my DNS server?

i host website for my small soccer clubs for free  in win 2k server.  

Right now my internet provider hosts the dns server and forwards to my ip address.  so when i purchase a domain name i point to the address given by my isp then i have to send them an email and when they get the email they update it in their system.     is there a way that i can just forward for example from(godaddy.com) to my ip address and eliminate the middle point?

Your Win2K server can also be a DNS server, and should be more than enough for what you need. You just have to go into Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Windows Components, and select the DNS server (you may need your Win2K install CD )....and reapply your latest service pack.  Once you have configured the DNS service correctly, you would then have to update the registration of your domain name to indicate the IP address of your server as the name (NS) server for your domain.

However, I would recommend that you continue to use your ISP's DNS server.  If you change ISPs, you will still have to update the domain registration with a new IP address for your name server, even if the name server is your own server.  I don't think you will get any benefit from going though the trouble of maintaining your own DNS.

Did you set up your own DNS, or decide to continue using the ISP's DNS?
