Question

Bind on own server instead of OC control panel

Posted March 8, 2014 3.2k views
I'm experimenting with a VPS server hosted on digitalocean. I want to run Bind and bypass the DNS settings on the Control Panel. So here is what I've done so far: 1.) Went to GoDaddy (my registrar) and created NS1 & NS2 both pointing to my same IP since I only have one server on digitalocean. Now I need to do (this is a question)? 2.) Install Bind? 3.) Configure Bind? Then I should be able to control my DNS from my server and not have to worry about the DNS control panel? I'm new here (about 2 weeks). I would just rather have more control over my DNS than control panel offers. Does this sound like it will work? Randy

Don't know if this is relevant but I did something like this . I have a domain with linuxConsulting. I just used their ns control panel and just added a hostname under my registered domain with them and added an A record with the droplets IP address . Makes getting to the droplet easier. Hope I didn't
do something heretical . Don't want lightning to strike.
