Running my own server has been...an interesting experience over the years.
Now I'm thinking it's time for a new experiment.
I presently have my own physical server and recently setup a cloud-hosted
VPS. The VPS is being used to host a new domain. PowerDNS Authoritative is
installed and configured as a slave (sqlite backend). PowerDNS Recursor is
installed for the server's use (nonpublic) - I turned off the systemd
resolver. The new domain was created on my main server as master (mysql
backend) and it syncs just fine. Even got DNSSEC working.
So now...I'm wondering providing my domain via TLS and possibly HTTP. I
obviously don't need load-balancing...but it looks like the "new toys" of
DNS are provided by dnsdist. So with my setup (two servers as pdns
master/slave) how do I implement this? Do I install dnsdist on both
servers, with dnsdist as the public-facing DNS provider, and just put the
two servers into the pool? What else do I have to do to maintain the
