Options other than my ISP's DNS?

I am in the process of reading up on VPN’s and in doing so, stumbled upon the importance of having altered DNS servers. As of now, my DNS server is provided by my ISP, and I would like to change this. In addition, I would like to begin using a VPN, but that is a topic for another day.

Does anyone have any particular recommendations when choosing another DNS? I am running OpenSuse 13.1, not that it matters. Thank you in advance; any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Low-maintenance split horizon DNS?

Currently several of our main domain names are manually replicated into our corporate windows DNS servers from our api-less DNS provider.

As you can imagine, over the years we’ve got loads of discrepancies between both zones, records existing on one side but not the other which is pain.

I’ve started to shift domains to existing externally only and removing our internal zones where possible, which has some success, but the exception to this is where we actually want record asymmetries, these are where we have private routes to various services we’d rather use internally.

I’ve actually mostly dealt with this issue via planning to keep only a single zone internally, On this zone I’ve created which exists both internally and externally. Externally it points to the public IP, internally it points to the corresponding internal routed IP.

So when I have a website I want to use different routes I create a CNAME for to which then handles the split routing without me having to host the zone internally.

The problem is that I’m left not knowing how to route because of how you can’t CNAME the root record.

How should I fix this issue?

pointing third party DNS to zpanel domain on VPS?

I’ve tried googling this for days and I honestly couldn’t find a legitimate answer. I’m running a VPS with Zpanel installed (CentOS 6.6) and created a domain. I want a third party DNS service, such as dottk or to point to my domain that I’ve created on ZPanel. I’ve tried using by changing the nameserver (on my zpanel) to that of DNS4s. That didn’t seem to work. I feel like this should be an easy thing to do, just don’t know why it’s not working.

Retrieve MX records using nslookup

One of my new kids on the block asked me a question tonight; “Jermal, how do I get the mx record of a domain?”

To retrieve mx record information we need to use a tool called nslookup which is available in Windows and Linux

The quick syntax use is nslookup [-option] [hostname] [server]

Example of its usage nslookup -type=mx

I hope this helps,
