Hello,

I got two virtual machines with two different providers, both have windows server 2003 standard edition loaded.

I wish to host my own dns for my domain names, can i do that without installing active directory? I mean simply install only the dns service ? and how would the primary nameserver transfer to the secondary nameserver when updates occur?

Yes, you can have your own dns architecture without active directory.

First configure zones on first machine and on second dns configure secondary zones. This secondary zones are a copy from primary. To finish, configure replication between primary and secondary dns.
