Last Modified: 2012-05-10
My company has registered a lot of domain name and I would like to host the name servers in my company instead of park the domain name under hosting company.

1. If I use Windows 2003 or 2008, is it will be good to manage? any risks?

2. What are the popular solution for setting up the name servers.

3. If I split the DNS server to external and internal, are there any impacts?

4. Any website can learn what is network diagram and is flow? Because I have no experience on this.
