DNS... is this POSSIBLE?
I am not new to hosting, as i have had reseller accounts, but figured it was time for me to move up to a VPS so that i can learn how to do things myself (the companies i am going to go with will help me if i can't do something, so i can learn as i go) now for the question... (both accounts will have root access)
Windows= Standard 2003 (plesk)
Linux= Ubuntu Server 6.06 (vhcs)
I will be purchasing a VPS running plesk on windows.... and a vps running linux with VHCS... they are at two different locations and two different providers.... i was wondering if there was a way to use the same dns servers for both of them (or point the linux one at the windows one so that when i enter a domain if it is not found in the windows one it will send the request to the linux one)
so that when i do subdomain hosting i can give either linux or windows
sorry if this sounds stupid, but i have not really played much with dns, just basic networking....
thank you in advance....

Nice to see you moving up to a Virtual Private Server.
Firstly, let me gather the information correctly - you have one domain name that you wish to use with both servers, so that you can create a subdomain which could either be hosted on the Linux or Windows Server. Let me know if I've messed up yet
I'm not sure if it is possible to do the above with one single domain.
What I would do is set two more lots of Name Servers onto your domain for the additional server. If you need a hand doing this, feel free to drop me an email with your requirements.
Each server can have its own DNS master server. When someone subscribes for hosting, tell them to use whatever name servers correspond to the server they are hosted on.
As I said, if that all sounds really confusing or you need a hand, just send me an email and I'd be pleased to help.
