    I recently setup a dedicated server that I will be administrating for a number of companies. Great setup. I have gotten the name server configured and provided I have the Nameserver IP in my DNS entries I can simply use the name. If I do not use the IP, and use the ISP(SBC) nameservers I can not access using name, only IP works. Also, I have a registered domain with network solutions and I pointed the IP at NS to the correct IP on my server. That works great.

    Do I need to make some DNS entries on my datacenters nameserver or will my nameserver and new sites I create slowly transfer through the net? If DNS entries are not needed would it help speed the nameserving process?

    I only ask you guys because hosting companies tend to answer the question in their favor.

    Thanks All! Love the Manager! I have been a windows user, although now I think I have the tools and knowledge to move onto Linux.
