Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
But what Í REALLY wanted to learn was how to set up a DNS server.
I am not sure you NEED a dns server, but if your REALLY want to learn how to set one up, here is a guide that can point you in the right direction quickly ht*p://howto.lycos.com/lycos/series/1,,6+36+26095+24860,00.html. If you want a GOOD guide, I would recommend the book published by O'Reilly entitled DNS & BIND.
As said on their website:
'A domain name under SE is delegated to own name servers when one or several NS-posts in the domain name is placed in the SE-zone. A NS-post is pointing out the name of the name server which shall be responsible for the domain name. It is not recommended to have fewer than two name servers. The servers should be placed on different places on the net and on geographical different places.'
