The domain name system (or DNS) is a system allowing to establish a link between an IP address and a host of a domain. (see DNS on wikipedia)


DNS Creation

good to know

You can register your domain using the registrar of your choice. Just know that TuxFamily have all our domains registered by gandi and that we really like their services. We are now going to consider for the rest of this page that you own the domain myproject.org.

Some simple steps

  • log into the panel
  • select the group that will receive your new DNS
  • Use the "create" button in the DNS section of the menu.
  • Fill up the "domain name" field. In our example, myproject.org
  • Then, as usual, you will have to provide a description for our dear moderators ;)

How to configure and manage your domain name

On your registrar web interface

Depending on the registrar you have chosen for your domains, the configuration method will change. This is why we can't provide detailed steps for this configuration. You may have to educate yourself using your registrar's help pages. You will need those informations :

  1. DNS Server 1 : ns1.tuxfamily.net
  2. DNS Server 2 : ns2.tuxfamily.net
