What tasks need to be done when setting up your own NS servers?
I'm busy with this now but I assume the order would be as follows:
* Procure 2x VPS's (or more) and setup a DNS cluster with replication. e.g. PowerDNS, MaraDNS or Cpanel DNS. - * Add your domains and create DNS records on said cluster SOA / MX / A / CNAME etc - * Set GLUE records are DOMAIN REGISTRAR and point them to your IP's. e.g. ns1.yourdomain.com = your_ip_here and ns2.yourdomain.com = your_ip_here - * Set A records on your NS server to reflect the NS name choices above (is this necessary or does the glue record do this for you? e.g. do I need "ns1.yourdomain.com A your_ip_here" to be set on my DNS cluster or is that made redundant by the GLUE records at registrar level? - * Set reverse rDNS / PTR records on your VPS hosts where IP = ns1.yourdomain.com or IP = ns2.yourdomain.com (Is this done on the VPS host or do you set on your own DNS cluster?)
