Setup your own DNS server.

So I've got mousebaked.net registered, and I have an account at freedns.org for it, but unfortunately I forgot my log-in, so being able to actually configure my records is proving to be difficult. I don't really like freedns anyway.

 

I want to set up my BIND server to have records and just be able to maintain it that way, but I'm confused about a couple of things.

 

 

Can I make a record like "ns1.mousebaked.net" on one of my current nameservers, that points to the IP of my DNS server, which I could then place in my register's "Nameservers" section?

 

What is the deal with PTR registration? I know I can't really get it on a residential account, but do I need it for anything but MX or SMTP?

For low level, yeah, you can use your own machine. It can report correct address for sub-domains. But to force your primary domain address (mousebaked.net) to propagate, I'm pretty sure you still need some sort of a password. If you did not, it'd open huge security holes. Think of all the man-in-the-middle attacks you could pull if you can simply route connection through your own machines as if it was a gateway.

I'm not sure I know what you mean about needing a password. That is probably the part that is worked out with one's register in regards to PTR isn't it?

 

I might just try to find a better service than freedns.
