Hi guys, I am just looking for a little help with my BIND settings to be sure that it is all working correctly.
I am currently using a vanity nameserver, my webserver domain names are used but point to the DNS of the datacentre the server resides in, my vanity nameservers ar: ns1/ns2.webhostsheffield.com
On Virtualmin the DNS gets setup for each domain but in the nameserver settings I see:
bikechatter.net NS - Name Server pixel.webhostsheffield.com. bikechatter.net NS - Name Server dns1.sheffielddatacentre.com. bikechatter.net NS - Name Server dns1.sheffielddatacentre.com.
pixel.webhostsheffield.com is the FQDN/Hostname, I see no mention of the vanity nameservers there and am wondering if I am using the onboard DNS of Virtualmin properly.
So far for each of the domains I host I am having to enter their records manually into the datacentre DNS control panel, what I would prefer is to use the automatically generated DNS records in Virtualmin - can I do this or am I missing a part of how the system works?
In my mind the DNS of the Datacentre should be looking after the nameserver/FQDN aspect and then the server takes over with its own DNS.
Next up, why would the Virtualmin DNS be automatically generating records for the dns1/2.sheffielddatacentre.com when the nameservers are setup as my vanity ones? I want to avoid overcomplicating the DNS issues and causing errors as a result.
