    Default Domain/DNS questions concerning DynDns Account

    Hi,

    as I'm pretty fascinated about the overall functionality of zimbra I'm trying to set up a zimbra home server for my family,
    by now a combination of postfix/dovecot/procmail/spamassassin is handling this job.

    So far I understand that with zimbra I additionally need an own dns server and a domain with correct A/MX records set.

    What I have so far is:

    - a server sitting behind a router which means a need a splitdns configuration
    (Split DNS - Zimbra :: Wiki)
    - a dyndns account pointing at my home server (xyz.homeip.net)
    - a so far unused domain hosted by strato

    The question now is how to bring this all together.
    At strato I can specify mx and a records for my domain,
    but only with IP's and not with domains like in my case xyz.homeip.net.

    Could someone give me some tipps how to handle this problem?

    Regards,
    Flo

    Your understanding is correct, you'll need the services you've described above. If you don't have access to the DNS configuration then I'd suggest using an account at DNS Hosting, domain name management and registration, dynamic DNS, secondary DNS and managed nameservers by easyDNS (it will cost you something but worth it) and set your DNS records and domain via their easy-to-use configuration panels. I have no association with easydns other than as a satisfied customer, you can also find other similar services on the web via google.

    Hi,

    thx for your answer.

    Just to get it right:
    you mean their Dynamic DNS Service (Dynamic DNS: Map a Domain Name to Operate Internet Services on Home Computers) ?

    Regards,

    Just to add a second DNS company, one which I have used for the last couple of years, is DynDNS: Dynamic DNS, E-Mail Delivery and Other Services . As Phoenix has said others are available.

    Yes, it's part of their basic DNS server that also allow you to manage your own DNS records for your domain. If you have a domain registered elsewhere you may need to modify the records so that it uses the easydns service or you can also move the registration to easydns (depending on the tld you use).
