View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing bind9 in ubuntu

August 28th, 2012, 11:42 AM
Hi i am trying to get bind9 to advertise my websites I have registered 2 domain names with crazy domains.com.au last night at aprox 9 pm.

They have still not come up and I am beginning to think I have done something wrong.I have set the master names in the name.conf.local file like so.

// Do any local configuration here

// Consider adding the 1918 zones here, if they are not used in your
// organization
//include "/etc/bind/zones.rfc1918";
zone "mjcmelectricalservices.com.au" {
type master;
file "/etc/bind/db.mjcmelectricalservices";

zone "micksblog.com.au" {
type master;
file "/etc/bind/db.micksblog";

and i have created two .db files as in the name.conf.local like so.

; BIND data file for local loopback interface
$TTL 604800
@ IN SOA mjcmelectricalservices.com.au. root.mjcmelectricalservices.com.au. (
4 ; Serial
604800 ; Refresh
86400 ; Retry
2419200 ; Expire
604800 ) ; Negative Cache TTL
@ IN NS ns.mjcmelectricalservices.com.au.
@ IN A
@ IN AAAA ::1
ns IN A

I have not created a reverse lookup zone as you can see as i am told that is not needed.

I have created an exception port 53 UDP and TCP in my firewall and port forwarded port 53 UDP and TCP in my router.
Crazydomains.com asked for my NS so i said


Have I done anything incorrect is there something else i need to do or am I just being impatient.

Thankyou mick463
