Cool About networking (DNS and regular)

Hi!

Everyone can have a site - http://<your-IP>.
Can be done with Apache or other.
I have a LAN, few computers connected.
One server (with Internet), other clients (without Internet).
On the server computer I run a web server and
a DNS server. So client computers can have access
to my page http://www.doma.net.
That's all localy made (access possible only on my LAN).

And now a question.

How can I make this public?
By >>public<< I mean if I want
>>http://www.doma.net<< on the internet,
not just on LAN.


I'm learning about computer administration (DNS,DHCP,Mail etc...),
so I'm very curious.

well you have to register the domain with a registration company. You can usually do that for about a buck to 5 bucks a month. Hope this helps (Or did I misunderstand your question?)

But I have a DNS server. I don't need to register (I think).

the servewr can store all your data/files/etc., but i believe that you would need to register the URL, or else other people would not be able to access your site (although you may be able to avoid this by just using a static IP address. not sure though.). Someone correct me if im wrong

Yeah, you'd need to register the URL with the IP of your Server so that they connect and can be used. You can get to your server through the IP if its on the internet now anyway; but for an address you'll need to register.

Then where are all the URLs that are assigned to IPs stored? On computers of course. But which?
If I type for example http://www.google.com ,
where will internet browser look, to which IP is google.com assigned to??

Well you'd have to find out which IP it is, and once you have the IP, you could type that in instead of "www.google.com". As for the URL's, those are just names assigned to an IP. that (in a way) redirect you to the IP, but in the URL bar it just covers it with the word to make it look nicer...

google and yahoo use multiple servers usually, when you do a dns request
it transfers you to the least busy server.
This is a secondary dns server transferring to the least busy server. The primary entry google.com is registered.
The list is maintained by Network solutions. Usually some DNS server somewhere along the road resolves google.com to it's IP.

you can get the ip quickly by resolving it with a ping request

gman24]$ ping google.com
PING google.com (216.239.37.99) 56(84) bytes of data.

You can also watch packets when you connect to it.

On linux you can use dig


gman24]$ dig google.com

If your asking how it is resolved it uses a dns nameserver.

Network solutions is the company that keeps the main domain list. This list is usually mirrored.

many companies work with Network solutions, that's why you can register from other compainies not just Network solutions.
