[sorry if this is duplicate; i can't see that it went through the
i have a domain that i host off my own computer but for which i use a
friend's nameservers. right now, those nameservers are down with an
unspecified ETA of getting back up, and i'm thinking this would be a
good excuse to figure out what's involved in doing my own nameserving.
i have two questions:
1. if i can't contact my friend, but i own the domain, i should be
able to switch the nameservers i use without him having anything to
do with it, right? just checking to make sure i understand this.
2. any advice on which dns server package i should use, if i'm to do
it myself? i seem to recall hearing the praises of DJBDNS sung,
and i don't want to start a religious war, but i'm curious if there
is a recommended beginner's straightforward DNS package out there
that i should definitely use over all others.
