Easy DNS Server

Postby Pat1991 » 2019-09-25 09:18

Hello,

I have a VPS where I want to install tons and tons of Wordpress blogs on different domains and subdomains. No experience with managing a server, so I'm keeping it simple.
Got Apache and SQL installed (correctly I hope), and now I need a DNS server. Since I want to install loads of domains I need something that I can easily manage...maybe something with web interface?

Seen some tutorials, most use a console based approach. Too difficult for me...

... can you recommend something more handy, along with a tutorial on how to install and use it?

I think you need cpanel or a cpanel alternative...

Why bother? Doesn't your domain registrar offer a free DNS service for your domain names?

As far as I know I have to setup a DNS server there. I don't think they do URL redirects.

You could use this:
https://www.namecheap.com/domains/freedns/

They also have premium DNS hosting for less than $5 per year.

If you set up your own DNS server, it's extra unnecessary work for you. And anything you set up is almost certainly going to be less reliable than a professionally-managed service.

You can't get much easier than this. They have an easy to follow interface. Also, it is free for smaller accounts.
