Hi,
I'm setting up my own web and mail server, so I'll be able host web sites... The question is: how can I set the DNS's so my domain points to my server IP?

Thank you.

Dear fountaintechies,

You can set the ip of your server to your domain as an address.
The DNS look like this:

domainname.com IN SOA ns1.nameserver.
[email protected]
{
serial: 2003103002
refresh: 28800
retry: 7200
expire: 3600000
minimum ttl: 86400
}
domainname.com. IN NS ns1.nameserver
domainname.com. IN NS ns2.nameserver
domainname.com. IN A serverIpaddress

.(Dot)is a must after the domainname.

Regards,
