[OT] DNS record registeration Hi all, I have been hanging around (lurker) on the forum for the past few days but this is my first post. It might seem stupid as I maybe asking a very simple/basic question which doesn't have anything to do with domain name registration -- at all. Details are sketchy at best atm. A group of friends of mine are trying to setup a mirror for some public software. Something like an FTP or some site which can be traverrsed by web-clients like FTP clients and such. This is the general direction. Now as this is going to be a public resource it needs to have some IP Address which would be registered at one of the Indian registeries. The group doesn't want/need a domain name at the present as the whole idea is still at an experimental stage. The domain name of course may come later when the backend and the infrastructure works out. Now the query is ? Who are the registerars for doing the number registrations ? I looked up http://www.apnic.net/ who are responsible for registering these addresses and specifically http://www.apnic.net/community/about-the-internet-community/addressing/nro as well as http://www.internic.net/faqs/authoritative-dns.html One of the ways of course would be of course using some ISP and getting a static IP which should be the easiest route to take ? Are there any other options ? I may have been complete tangent above but would like some feedback so it gets cleared as to :- a. who can apply b. The complexity and the costs assocated with the same. Looking forward for feedback.
