DNS entry to access old version of website

I’m in the process of rebuilding my website, and using a new host, but keeping my original domain name. So I’m just updating my A record to point to the new host. Is it possible to create another A record so that I can still access my old website (e.g. www.mysite.com/old) which resides on the old host, while accessing the new site on the new host using mysite.com and www.mysite.com?

Is there a public DNS server that is free yet dont snoop my search history?

This is the last thing Google that I have. And I want to get rid of it. I can’t use my ISP DNS because it is a piece of garbage.

I have one more question related to this. I have a VPS with 2gb RAM and two cores. I run my PHP, Mongo, Nginx on it. Do you think setting up DNS on my server would survive lots or page requests?

reverse dns sec for users, not isp's clarification

As a user with a domain name i have setup dnssec in the forward zone. When i get to do reverse zones [.in-addr.arpa or the ipv6 one] obviously there is conflict with my isp and the arin/apnic/ripe etc view of the zone.

So i think that reverse dns with dnssec is impossible unless i can get my isp to swtich on dnssec at there end.

Is it possible to bypass this myself rather than ask nicely for something that clearly wont happen as most people dont care. I have non signed reverse dns entrieswith my isp.

Or am i doomed to forward zone dnssec only. I see that it is possible but many links are dead links or assume i am an isp not a user and so dont have the required access.

Am i wrong to be negative in my view

Interview For DNS Company

hey all,

I am interviewing for a company with a heavy focus on DNS. I am entering into my first interview this Thursday for a Technical Support Analyst position, and I am trying to be as prepared as possible. As I search for material to help add a bit of depth to my knowledge base, I feel like there is way too much to isolate what I’d be expected to know. I have a Network+ cert, and have read DNS & Bind and TCP/IP by O’Reilly and I have a few handbooks like NMAP Cookbook and Red Team Field Manual. Any advice on topics or tools that one would be expected to know?

Thanks
