Re: Be Broadband and Web Server
if you can get a static IP address...
if you can't I suggest that you do the same as I do.
I have a .co.uk name that I host a website from on a dynamic IP address.
I use no-ip.com to get a dynamic DNS resolution with the no-ip DUC that changes the IP address of the machine each time.
I pointed the DNS records of my .co.uk domain name to be ns1.xyz.no-ip.com and ns2.xyz.no-ip.com
I host my own DNS and have an alias record for my .co.uk name (something that I couldn't enter on the online one).
there are a few problems with this.
If my server goes down, so does my DNS so I'm screwed -but the sites no online either so that doesn't matter
if No-ip goes down I'm screwed...
though I could solve this by having an account with dyn-dns or someone simillar so my name server entries for my domain are
(of course you have to host your own DNS as well then -though I don't find that a problem).
I do this because with a BT business package a static IP address costs extra.
and since I have a free solution, I don't see why I should pay an extra £5 per month,
I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
