how can I register subdomains of my web development server into my DNS automatically?

I mean, I wouldn't like to edit the DNS config file, but send something from the client that says 'Hey, I have a subdomain here'. Is it possible? Other way, how can I register a subdomain, example redmine.DEV01 into my dnsmasq installation?



You can use dnsmasq wildcard. For example if you want to force all subdomains of DEV01 to machine with ip just add this line to dnsmasq config: address=/.DEV01/

  • Is it possible to let the DEV01 server publicly it's subdomains on the DNS automatically? – JorgeeFG Feb 3 '13 at 15:25
  • Good question. I thought you only need subdomains for localhost or lan. I don't know how to make public subdomains similar way. In fact I have similar question – rominf Feb 3 '13 at 15:32
  • Yes it's for LAN, but I would like to allow my DEV01 server to publicly its subdomains to the DNS automatically (I have a server running dnsmasq), I mean, to do not have to edit DNS config file? I wonder if that is possible or I will always need to force it editing the DNS config file. – JorgeeFG Feb 3 '13 at 15:38
