say one purchased a domain e.g. “ThisDom.Net”
currently using aliases you can easily use an email-address such as
however, several zones / domains are involved totally:
- ThisDom.Net itself of course
- sub.ThisDom.Net the main mail domain
it would be nice to have 1 single zone for everything instead of these 4 zones.
But I also understand this creates some trouble with glue records and what not.
using BIND , it is not too hard to “serve root @ home” and consequently serve a TLD with everyting we need for MiaB in it.
But MiaB does not employ BIND , instead it used a simpler nameserver.
has someone tried to work on a single-zone setup maybe ?
it seems promising in terms of simplicity. That is – if it does not introduce too much stressing us out power-users and admins.
I dreamt of having the complete setup in a single portable zone file .
cloudns.net offers to import/export those zonefiles very handily. This is limited to their zones while DNS in MASTER-MODE: if one uses their dns-servers in slave mode, no such zone files can be made use of. bummer!
instead one must struggle with all those APIs. I mean desec.io has a workable API but not all DNS-record-types are fully supported as of now. so migrating amongst registrars is very painful.
Having to work with 4 or more zones might introduce extra troubles for first time users or even power users.
I always prefer KISS = Keep It Simple, Stupid!
