Bind on own server instead of OC control panel

March 8, 2014 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

This article will show you how to setup and configure the BIND DNS Server on CentOS 6.
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.
