Hi Ahmet,

maradns can be used as both:
- authorative nameserver (that is, resolving names for domain names under your control and answering queries for these domains from other nameservers);
- recursive resolver (that is, looking up any DNS records for any domains out there);

For maradns version 2 and later, the recursive resolver is called 'deadwood', with maradns version 1 both functionalities are provided by the maradns program.

So yes, if you want to resolve domain names for yourself instead of using the resolvers provided by your ISP / google / whomever, maradns will be able to do this for you.

Please read the documentation coming with the program, and ask again should you run into any problems.

Best,

Remco

Hi Ahmet. That shouldn't pose any problems. Please note though, that maradns is an open source project without funding. As such, this forum is the only free support option that I am aware of for it, and dependent on the time availability of those who volunteer to post on it. The latter consist mainly of Maradns' main author, who's probably also happy to provide paid support in case that is desired.

RE: Mara Dns For Resolver
To use MaraDNS to resolve other names, use Deadwood.

I have one other user using Deadwood in an enterprise environment. Indeed, the most recent update is an update for a bug which only manifested itself using Deadwood in the enterprise.

A Deadwood HOWTO is here:

http://maradns.samiam.org/deadwood/doc/Deadwood-HOWTO

If you want hand-holding support, PM me and we can discuss rates. MaraDNS has very little free support, but I am open to a paid support contract.

As a point of comparison, a basic support contract for BIND, another open-source DNS server, is $10,000 a year:
