Me and DNS

Thursday, March 08, 2007 Posted by Ismail Habib , 33 comments
Several weeks ago I had a problem with DNS (Domain Name Service). Because of some situation I had, I couldn't get the access to the ISP DNS Server. That's why I used to use some free DNS server somewhere else. I was quite happy with this until one time the DNS Server performed poorly. I experienced some failure names tracking and some downtimes. Since I use 80% of my life surfing in the net (Okay, I'm exaggerating...) this is quite disturbing. I tried to find some more free public DNS but none of them could satisfy me.

Frustrated, another idea popped up in my mind. Rather than using some external DNS Servers, why don't I just try to make one for myself? Being 100% aware that I couldn't create my own DNS software for my XP system, I tried to find some on the net (How did I do that without DNS Server?). Then I found a very good application called SimpleDNS and there goes my problem. Finished? not yet... SimpleDNS is not a free software, and it only gave me 15 days trial (actually it expired in one days, strange enough huh?). Therefore I tried to find an alternative: BIND. Unlike SimpleDNS, BIND is not that easy to use, especially when you're not in the mood to do that. Luckily, after some extensive search, I found Treewalk, a program that's perfectly fit to my requirements! It's easy, simple, and on top of that... it also free for personal use.

For you who want to find an alternative, I found this website: OpenDNS which I think quite promising though I never use it. My only regret is that I found this website quite long enough after I overcame my DNS problem... :P

  6. Crypto Vip ClubSeveral that are new to the cryptocurrency camp are shocked at the recent crash. All they've heard was how of these early adopters were getting made and shopping for Lambos. To a lot of experienced traders, this market correction was pretty obvious because of the skyrocketing costs over the past 2 months. Many digital currencies recently made many folks overnight millionaires. It was obvious that sooner or later they might want to require some of that profit off the table.

  18. Rapid Tone Evidence shows that being physically active delays the onset of chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer, as well as cognitive conditions such as dementia. You may have seen some of this research in action in the hit BBC series How To Stay Young, which was aired earlier this year. I headed up a team of experts who put a group of volunteers through a raft of tests to determine their ‘body age’ from their birth age.

  20. Have you been told that you have to take in fats included in any nutrition diet plans for losing weight? If you are looking to slim down your middle, you should learn the proper ways to eat in order for this elimination of fat to occur. While you are the one in charge of your Keto Fire, having a support system will help you to stay motivated. Once you start losing a substantial amount of pounds, clean out your closet and throw out old clothes that are too big for you.
