Thanks for your extended comments, atcroft, they helped me to get over the hump here. That book is definitely worth reading and bookmarking. Regarding VPS's, a super search revealed Is it Perl problem or VPS problem? and Move Perl modules to new CentOS VPS, good for background.

A few quick notes. '@' refers to the zone name.

I really don't know how to disambiguate the @'s in this business yet. What ended up working for me was, for the A tab, putting the @ in the left window and 'fourth' on the right, the alias for my IP address. I did the same with AAAA, and then all the records look like this:

DNS records Type Hostname Value TTL (seconds) AAAA directs to 2604:a880:4:1d0::78:2000 3600 A directs to 3600 NS directs to 1800 NS directs to 1800 NS directs to 1800

To be very honest, I don't understand these mappings at all. Indeed, the NS ones seem to be backwards to me. (?)

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
