Requirements for nameservers?

what specs would people recommend for a nameserver? im thinking a kvm vps but open vz is prob ok too (correct me if im wrong) with 256/512 ram and low ssd size what people think?

would a 100mbs connection suffice?

  • 256mb ram, any disk as long as you have enough space for all your records - i've used 12gb disk one one of my nameservers!

    If your running cPanel DNS Only then 256MB RAM but if your using PowerDNS then 128 would be fine.

    100Mb/s would be plenty for a NS.

    Depends what nameserver software you use, bind uses a lot more than many others. You could run nameservers on a 128mb vps. Why not use a free nameserver like namescheap.com ? Running your own nameserver can be a bit of a pain in the arse at times

  • For a DNS Server, a 128MB Ram/256MB Ram VPS Sha'll do with 5GB-10GB Disk Space. Just find one of those cheap $10/Year VPS Servers. Or, you could just host your DNS using a site like CloudFlare for free

  • im using ispconfig 3 which allows me and clients to do dns records from within the panel and deletes them when a client leaves and allows replication across my servers. ill be using bind. i also eventually want to resell domain names so having my own ns seems like a good place to start.
