need help with virtual host and some dns questions
I'm a newbie to Linux and first time trying to set up my own web server.
I have been doing lots of reasearch over the net for the past two weeks.
Here is what I accomplished so far:
Installed Linux 9
Loaded webmin and usermin --- awesome program! btw
I am doing all this testing within an internal network, no internet connection yet. This is what I'm having problems with now.
I am trying to test setting up virtual hosting. I added the 2 virtual host names to the httpd.conf file but I have no clue on how to set up a DNS record on the server. Can someone please give me the steps?
I also have some basic questions regarding DNS server. Since I don't have a static IP, I must use one of those dynamic DNS hosting services. If so, do I still need a local DNS server for my emails and virtual hosts?
What I really mean is can I still run my own webserver and email domain without running a DNS server off my server?
Thanks in advance. I'm sorry for being such a newbie but I am trying.
