I ask this knowing the answer is 99% likely to be "no, that's not the point of NS at all," but hey, I'm not a true webmaster so thought I'd check.
I would like to set up one root domain with two nameservers (not for redundancy) so that I can manage different sets of subdomains in two different places. Example:
Location 1 (DNS registrar)
A example.com 0.0.0.0 A a.example.com 0.0.0.1 A b.example.com 0.0.0.2 etc...
Location 2 (NAS)
A x.example.com 0.0.0.3 A y.example.com 0.0.0.4 A z.example.com 0.0.0.5 etc...
Is this possible? If so, how? Or have I lost all semblance of sanity?
Why I want to do this
I have some various hosted websites and I manage their DNS through my registrar. I recently set up a NAS at home and love it, and have bunches of personal services running on it and will definitely add more.
I would love to be able to manage the DNS for the services running on the NAS from the NAS, it would just be more convenient... but I'd rather not do it on a double subdomain, e.g. if an
NS record for
n.example.com is pointed at my local NAS' DNS server, then all the domains I create on the NAS will be
I don't want to just manage all the DNS on my NAS, as I'm not confident in my ISP.
