Question

Making my dns root

by --Anonymus / October 10, 2014 5:14 PM PDT

Hi cnet members a few weeks ago I asked how to make my dns root. Well now I am going to ask again, but now I really want to make it, and I will get any software needed, and almost all hardware needed. And I want to do it myself.

The task of a DNS root server is to facilitate the communication between DNS servers and synchornize the data those contain. So it's best to first implement your own network with at least 2 isolated stand-alone DNS servers before starting to think about coordinating them by adding a root server.
What's the current state of your network? How many DNS servers do you have?

We went over the DNS ROOT question. Having your own DNS is well discussed so why not do that now?

I still dont know how to do it. I tried BIND9 but couldnt find the source code for windows.

BIND9 is not going to make you have a root server.

Did you start simple by adding what you want to the PC's HOSTS file?

As you know, what's in the HOSTS file trumps the DNS. Let's hear that you knew that.
