Correct DNS settings for a domain name.

Specs: Windows XP
Hello,

Firstly, I am sorry if I am on wrong category.

I would like to ask something about DNS servers. First, what is the difference between DNS servers which are used for connecting to the internet and DNS servers for domain names which are used for pointing servers as I know.

Secondly, I would like ask about a DNS configuration,

For example I have a domain name, xxx.com and here are the DNS records of it,

xxx.com NS ns.xxx.com
xxx.com NS ns2.xxx.com
ns.xxx.com A IP of server
ns2.xxx.com A IP of server
www.xxx.com CNAME IP address

I think this should be enough a site to work.

But I wonder, if I want to use this domain's dns for pointing another domain to another server, what I need to do? (I also could not understand what I mentioned here. :) )

Hope I could explained my question.

Thank you.
:)

hi webmaster61. I think your first question was asking what is the difference between the dns of say a hosted website, and that of an internal server. If that is what you were asking, the answer is just location. They are essentially the same thing. They resolve names into ip addresses, but one is on your lan, and one is outside on your dmz or your web hosting service.

Now as far as your dns records for your xxx.com domain go... I think they might need some work

ns.xxx.com A IP of server <<is this pointing to a name server that belongs to your host or your isp? If so, you might want to change your ns records to point directly to the ip of those servers instead of to a subdomain of your domain
ns2.xxx.com A IP of server <<same with this

hi jowah.

Thank you very much for your reply. I think the first question is now better on me.

But actually, I could not understand the second one. Maybe I could not understand it because of my missing English. :)

Here is what I try to do,

There are two domain names; xxx.com and aaa.com, and they need to be on different servers.

xxx.com's DNS configuration is okay.

I want to point aaa.com to its server, by using a name server of xxx.com .

Namely, xxx.com's a different name server(which is not used by itself) will point aaa.com to its server which is a different one.

Hope explained it clearly.

Thank you. :)
