setup multiple sites athome
Posted on 2009-04-21
I have a windows 2003 server with a static IP address at home and I was wondering about setting up DNS for the domains to use.
I have a primary dns and secondary dns servers created at my registrar but once I move the sites to my home server I will not have any control over the IP addresses for the dns servers ns1 and ns2.
My question is whats the best way to use my dns servers. should I ask my ISP to provide me with a second IP address to use for the secondary dns "NS2"? I need my dns to point to ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com.
the second question is, is using host header files the best way to host multiple sites on the same machine using the same IP address?
