We are a small business with several branches around our country, trying to improve intra-office communications.
In order to host a mail server at our head office we have upgraded our Business Broadband plan to a Static IP with Port 25 open, purchased two domain names (one for email and another for the public facing website) and set up a high end PC with a router.
Port 80 and 25 have been forwarded successfully. But we have a problem with the DNS settings of the domain.
We would like to set up the mail server using single static IP but the nameserver settings in our ISP's cpanel require two nameservers - how should we proceed?
as one of my frined 'flaflamme' suggested for free dns service provider (http://zonomi.com) and now for my domain :getdatxxx.in( x marked for privacy ) and my staic ip 121.243.xxx.xx
and dns settings goes like this is this sufficient ?
IP Addresses (A) Domain IP Address getdatacards.in points to 121.243.xxx.xx getdatxxx.in points to 121.243.xxx.xx
Mail Servers (MX) Mail Server Handles Email For Order getdatxxx.in getdatxxx.in 0
Name Servers (NS)
Name Server Domain ns1.zonomi.com handles DNS for getdatxxx.in ns2.zonomi.com handles DNS for getdatxxx.in Zone Configuration (SOA) Primary Name Server ns1.zonomi.com
DNS Host Master soacontact.zonomi.com
Secondary Refresh 3 hours Secondary Retry 1 hour Secondary Expire 1 week Default Record Cache Time 1 hour
please tell me whether this works for me and do i need to update this dns1 & 2 in my domain hosted control panel ??
