    Request for general DNS and WHM/DNS guides(manuals,FAQs)

    Hi all,

    We're soon gonna switch to WHM controlled DNS servers so I wanted to read something about it and be prepared if(when :eek: ) something goes wrong. Please tell me if you know any good tutorials/guides/books/sites/whatever source of information on the subject. Thank you so much.

    I'm sorry I didn't mean flash tutorials. I meant more like text information(books etc).

    You don;t need a tutorial, WHM manages DNS pretty straightforward.

    Unless you don't have a good understanding of DNS and how it works (Zone files, master/slaver servers, transfers, queries, TTL, DNS caching, Authoritative servers, etc...). I'd suggest a more thorough introduction, for example DNS and Bind by O'Reilly ( http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/dns4/ ). If this is what you need, you need much more of the theory side than the practical side (the interface for DNS that WHM provides).

    To someone that already understands DNS, the WHM interface is pretty straightforward.
