This tutorial series shows you how to set up custom DNS servers using PowerDNS on Ubuntu 14.04. At the end of this series you’ll have two nameservers running under your own custom domain.
PowerDNS is an advanced, high performance authoritative nameserver compatible with a number of backends. In this case we will use MariaDB to store our zone file records. At the end of this tutorial, you will have a working PowerDNS nameserver that you can use to host DNS for any number of domains.
In this tutorial we will learn how to set up PowerDNS in a master/slave configuration with automatic replication from the master DNS server to the slave. This tutorial is the second tutorial in our PowerDNS series for Ubuntu.
