What Nameserver should I use?
« on: October 23, 2020, 04:00:18 PM »
I am new to Linux and the CWP setup. I have used IIS for 20 years.

My question is what should I put in for the name servers. All my domain names are at GoDaddy and I have always used their DNS.

I host my own mail server, web servers, etc, onsite. I have 8 static IP's and all DNS is setup at GoDaddy. My Sonicwall routes external IP's to my internal, all is normal.

I have 5 websites running on my Windows IIS server all on the same IP. I have never setup any DNS internally and all has worked perfectly for 20 years. SO now the Nameserver thing in CWP has me very confused. can I disable that? If not what Nameservers do I use? please tell me how to do this the right way.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, John

The process is very simple.

First of all, enter the nameserver section through the centos web panel 2087 admin panel and set 2 nameservers.

http://prntscr.com/v5nnej
http://prntscr.com/v5nnzi

sample:

ns1.domain.com - Type your server's IP into the IP field.
ns2.domain.com - Type your server's IP into the IP field.

After the operations in the panel, go to your domain panel and create a subname server; Likewise, write ns1, ns2 and the IP address of your server next to it.

Finally, update your nameserver records.

ns1.domain.com
ns2.domain.com

If you can't, send me a message.

simple?
so if my server ip is 123.456.789.123 and my server fqdn is svr1.myserver.com
should i use ns1.myserver.com @ 123.456.789.123
and add a A-host record at godaddy to resolve ns1 to 123.456.789.123.
or since the domain myserver.com cant be added to the server do i need to add a domain to the system like hostingserver.com and add ns1.hostingserver.com @ 123.456.789.123 and again add a host record as above?
