DNS is a complex system. What you have read so far is just the tip of… the tip of the iceberg. I hope it is enough, however, to help you decide if any of these “DNS hacks” could be useful for you, and show you the road to implement them:
Just a few notes on the purpose, structure of DNS, with some really basic configuration procedures and tricks for DNS on Linux
Static websites are great. Hugo is a really great static website generator. Except for a few things (some not even Hugo’s fault!).
Did you ever cancel by mistake a post on some website, only to find out that you had no other copy of it anywhere, not even in Google’s cache? I did. Here is how I recovered it.

- This is a website by M. Fioretti, freelance author specialized in Free as in Freedom software and digital rights issues, co-author of the Open Government book and board member of the Free Knowledge Institute. I regularly write about digital rights and other, more or less related topics at the Stop!, which you are all invited to visit, of course.

The CentOS 6 Linux Server Cookbook is a Packt Publishing title first published in April 2013. You can buy it in paper format (about 370 pages) or as an ePUB or PDF file (black and white only, whereas the ePUB version is in colours). In general I believe, especially in these times of PRISM and widespread economic crisis, that the more people learn how to run their own Free Software servers, the better. I’ve already explained how and, above all, why we should all do this with email and (at least) social networking and online publishing. That’s why, when Packt asked me to review the Cookbook, I accepted.
