External websites and domains - split zone woes

by Scosby Friday, February 19, 2010

This is more for my own reference, but this is a great blog post by Ace Fekay for split zone domains. A split zone domain is one where your externally hosted website has the same name as your domain (internal name).

Who's your DNS daddy?

by Scosby Monday, May 11, 2009

Ok, you can skip this if you don't have a DNS server at your disposal...and everyone should have one at home, at least...but I digress.

I have been forwarding to OpenDNS for some time now, and I am completely happy. You should go get a free account and here are a few reasons why.

  • SmartCache ---- awesome stuff.
  • Parental controls --- man, I know I'm getting old when this stuff is getting more exciting. But this is really awesome and highly configurable!
  • Typo correction - personally, i've fat fingered too many .com as .cmo

If you're skeptical, it's ok. You can forward to their DNS servers free and w/o an account. Works fine that way too, but then you lose out on the smartcache and the conficker protection ;)

Happy resolving!
