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?
Run your own web server (unlimited disk space! :)
Run your own mail server and have a really cool e-mail
address (like email@example.com)
Run your own mail list server
etc etc etc
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):
Each domain name is a separate request
If you would like to run a web/mail/news/etc. server
from your home or business, you MUST have a static IP address (not DHCP; i.e. Dynamic IP) (this will
probably cost a little extra from you ISP).
I am more than happy to help anyone
out with special request. My regular job is a Networking/UNIX consultant
for one of the "big three" US telco companies. There is nothing that
I can't do, it's only a question of cost :)
DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY: This service may be knocked off line by Acts of God or Internet outages due to, but not limited to: fibre optic cable cuts, bad Internet backbone routing policies, network failures of backbone providers such as BellAtlantic, Primus, UUNET, PNAP, Sprint, WORLDCOM, etc. I will not assume any liability for any of these. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
with any questions or a registration request.
The details of this service:
I will provide DNS service for up to
5 IP addresses and/or host names per domain name (Of course, you can have multiple names for a single server. I'm not going to be real picky about this. But if you ask for 253 host names or IP addresses for a single domain it will cost more).
I will update your domain information
as many times as you like as long as you don't get ridiculous with request.
