Changing nameservers

From Pulsed Media Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

On most Linux servers the nameservers are in /etc/resolv.conf Edit this file, with for example vim

vim /etc/resolv.conf

Format of the file is nameserver a.b.c.d, example resolv.conf with google dns servers:

nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4

search line means which domain is searched for that host if specified name is not FQDN. Ie. if you have:

search pulsedmedia.com

and you do host servera on shell, it will try finding servera.pulsedmedia.com
