Hi there, first post!
Ok, this question is NOT intended to start a flame war, so please don’t think I am picking at something. I just have found no why on the subject of internal vs external DNS.
Some background, I have been in the hosting biz for nearly two decades, so DNS is not a mystery for me. Also, I have been in both camps (run my own nameserver and use others) and understand the general pros and cons in either case.
I have a client, a non-profit, that has been using MIAB for a while, and they are looking for help moving it to a new host and adding some redundancy. However, the documentation seems to strongly suggest internal DNS. On the other hand, it looks like the use of external DNS is a simple matter of duplicating the suggested DNS records the MIAB provides.
So, that said, what is the rational behind the suggestion for internal DNS? And what can I expect to break if we did external DNS? What am I missing?
Thanks, btw, for a great project, and great documentation!
