What is DNS hosting?

A: DNS (Domain Name Service) translates domain names (like www.unixhub.com) into numbers that computers can understand.  To register a domain name, the Internic (the Internet domain names authority) requires that you have two DNS servers connected to the internet at all times. Here is an example of an old (defunct) DNS table.

If you would like to register a domain name, you are required to have two DNS server names at the time that you register your domain name.  THIS IS WERE I COME IN!  I can provide you with two DNS servers to use for your registration.

What can I do with a domain name?

Ok, cool, what do I have to do?

There are two options:  Full service and self service.  (NSI registrations are good for two years)
Full Service ($120):
    If you don't want to deal with the Internic and their convoluted forms, I will do everything for you.  Just send me the domain name that you want and any IP addresses that you want associated with the domain name.

Self serve ($30):
    Send me $30 and I will provide you with the names and addresses of two DNS servers.  Then pick and register your  domain name from an IANA Registrar Domain Name Buyers guide. yourself.  Once the Registrar has registered your domain, I will update my DNS with your information.

You can contact me at barnesr@unixhub.com with any questions or a registration request.
