    Run A DNS Service Like ZoneEdit

    I'm interested in setting up and providing my own DNS services for public use. I have two separate server machines and can easily put an extra NIC card or two in any machine, if required. What would it take to create such a service like ZoneEdit or EveryDNS?

    I know I'd probably need to register 2+ static IP addresses thru Comcast and open a whole host of ports on my router. How would I set this up in terms of software? Is BIND the right tool for the job with a control panel in Usermin/Webmin?

    Any recommendations, links or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Bind's the right way to go here, but the idea's a little wacky.

    First, I'm not sure I'd want someone with a Comcast connection hosting my DNS records. Second, it's only a matter of time until you "accidentally" change an A record and everyone who goes to "myexampledomain.com" gets goatse'd.

    If you're just out to learn how to configure/manage DNS, like I said initially, have fun with bind
