Setting up an OpenVZ VPS DNS Server in CentOS 5.306 Sep 2009
Here is my quick-and dirty way to build DNS servers using OpenVZ, CentOS and Bind/Named. This assumes you are creating a new server via OpenVZ. Although Bind is easy to admin with the configuration files recently I have found it is easier to simply admin the zones with Webmin. This setup will create the VPS, install Bind and install Webmin.
Create the VPS:
From inside the VPS I install bind and webmin
Now I simply visit webmin’s panel and tap in any new zones (or copy over our zones from another box).
OpenVZ and virtual serving makes this time-consuming task of bringing new boxes up a simple task![
