I'm studying on a start-up project about creating an alternative root
server for alternative tlds.

I installed Power DNS with MySQL backend and it's working without a problem.

What do i want to do is;

Creating a child name server on Power DNS like ICANN accredited domain name
registrars offer to the customers who use this name server on different

So, Power DNS won't give detailed managed DNS functionality, it'll just
store the domain name data and name server record, so control of it will be
done by other DNS server.(And later, it'll be able to change this name
server record again with MySQL query.)

I created the domain name entry in domains table and put the zone records
on records table as SOA and name server definition pointing to other server
but it's not working what i wish.

Let's say the tld is "etc";

etc IN NS ns1.etc
ns1.etc IN A

And, i setup a master zone in ip based server and fill the other
records there.

I'm not sure if i could tell my issue clearly, but i wish someone
understood me.

Good works.
