"free" namesco .co.uk domain name

They say you can get a .co.uk tld name for free. I did it they charged me £1. :oops: Still, 1 quid for 1 year domain name seems decent enough to me. Just disable auto-renew of course. I just 301'd it to my .com.

apologies if it's in the wrong area.

Does Google Domains offer path fowarding (as opposed to redirecting the entire domain)?

I have a URL www.first.example and I want to forward www.first.example/test to www.second.example. Is this possible to do in Google Domains?

attack prevention – Should I have another domain name for my company internal tools

My company has a domain name that we use to serve our customers, say company.com for the main website, app.company.com for the web application and api.company.com. These are all public domains that our customers connect to use our services.

Besides this we also have another set of tools that are used only internally by our employees (customer management software, ticket management, bi, etc). I’ve clustered everything inside a single subdomain internal.company.com. This means that we have domains like tickets.internal.company.com or bi.internal.company.com.

Even though we don’t publicize these domains, since they all have a TLS certificate it’s quite easy to find them only. As a matter of fact, search through the logs I can find lots of exploit crawlers trying to access /.env, /wp-admin and so on. We always try to keep everything up-to-date, but leaving things out in the open (specially the BI tools, since they can download lots of data) scares me.

I’m thinking about buying a new domain just for these internal tools, something that is unrelated to the name of the company. I think this would at least make it harder for a targeted attack, since the attacker would have to know this domain name (thus having someone inside the organization providing this information to him).

I could force everyone to use a VPN to connect to a local network and then provide the service there, but I’m trying to avoid the hassle of having to help every non-technical employee how to use a VPN.

Am I being too paranoid? Does having a separate domain actually helps mitigate some of the threats or it would actually make any significant difference?

PS: The internal tools range from open source projects installed on our servers to services completely developed inside the company.

domain name system – Secondary DNS is not responding to dig

We are new to DNS. we are trying to configure a secondary DNS server using Bind & CentOS for an existing primary server (Eg:142.250.192.110).

Our secondary server configuration is as follows:

    listen-on port 53 { 127.0.0.1; any; };
        listen-on-v6 port 53 { ::1; any; };
        directory       "/var/named";
        dump-file       "/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
        statistics-file "/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
        memstatistics-file "/var/named/data/named_mem_stats.txt";
        recursing-file  "/var/named/data/named.recursing";
        secroots-file   "/var/named/data/named.secroots";
        allow-query     { any; };

    
zone "example.com" IN {
        type slave;
        masters {  142.250.192.110; };
        file "slaves/example.forward";
};
zone "192.250.142.in-addr.arpa" IN {
        type slave;
        masters {  142.250.192.110; };
        file "slaves/example.reverse";
};

When we executed dig @127.0.0.1 host1.example.com we are getting proper reply.
When we executed with local IP, dig @192.168.1.10 host1.example.com we are getting proper reply.

But when we execute command with public IP / hostname of secondary server, Eg: dig @dns2.example.com host1.example.com we are getting error like ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

Please suggest some help to solve this issue. Thanks in advance for your valuable time and help.

Note: We have an firewall which do NAT local IP with Public IP. We are waiting for the reply from network team, whether Firewall is blocking this dig request.

domain driven design – Obtaining application generated ID from repostory or from entity constructor?

In the Book “Implementing Domain-Driven Design” the author suggests to implement a repository method to provide the next application-generated (not database-generated) ID. Like so:

class MyRepo {
  public MyId nextId() {
    return new MyId(UUID.fromRandom());
  }
}

That would lead to code like this:

var id = repository.nextId();
var entity = new MyEntity(id, ...);

But although I can see the point that providing IDs is somehow the responsibility of a repository, I don’t see an actual benefit of this implementation. Why not assiging the ID directly on object construction?

@Entity
public class MyEntity {
  @Id
  private MyId id = new MyId(UUID.fromRandom());
}

One could also argue that the identity is a central part of the entity itself.

But apart from this philoshophical difference, I see the benefit of creating the ID directly in the entity that no additional call to the repository is needed.

Do you see any advantage of providing the ID by the repository?

cname – Azure Custom Domain not resolving

It seems like I have my A CNAME and TXT records correct for my Azure App but My Domain name is still not resolving.
Error:
404 Web Site not found.

You may be seeing this error due to one of the reasons listed below :

Custom domain has not been configured inside Azure. See how to map an existing domain to resolve this.
Client cache is still pointing the domain to old IP address. Clear the cache by running the command ipconfig/flushdns.

Here is my source tutorial:

Minimal DNS for domain pointer/redirect

I need the minimal DNS records to either point/redirect a domain at an existing web and email service. I am looking at some existing redirection DNS records and there seem to be many more than necessary

All I need are the following

mypointerdomain.net -> existingdomain.com
mail.mypointerdomain.net -> mail.existingdomain.com
www.mypointerdomain.net -> www.mypointerdomain.com

I am not sure of A, AAAA, MX, PTR, TXT,CNAME etc that they have included which are strictly necessary for a basic set of records

Are there wildcard records to just point the lot at an existing web and email service

Apologies if I havent given enough information but the default set of records they have set up seem far too many for what I need

The hosting company isnt very cooperative either so I’m trying to avoid hassling them and fix it up myself. They just make life difficult and stressful in every interaction

Would be very grateful for any assistance

Thanks

html – Must the image url in a sitemap file begin with the same domain the file is stored on?

I remember when making a sitemap, all URLs defined in between <loc> and </loc> must be part of the same domain as the domain the file is stored on. For example, I can use this line in my sitemap…

http://an.example.com/abc.html

…Only if the sitemap is stored on and publicly accessible from the folder mapped to the an.example.com domain.

But that entry above won’t work if the sitemap is stored on a folder representing a different domain such as y.example.com or even domain.com.

My question is, should I use the above thinking when trying to index for Google images? For example, do image URLs defined in <image:loc> and </image:loc> have to contain the same domain as the location of the sitemap file the entries are contained in?

The reason why I ask is because I have two subdomains. Let’s call them t.example.com and i.example.com. T is for text, and I is for images.

My site map for one page currently would look like something as follows:

<url>
<loc>http://t.example.com/page-one.html</loc>
<image:image>
<image:loc>http://i.example.com/image-one</image:loc>
<image:title>Some image</image:title>
</image:image>
</url>

Am I wrong with using a different subdomain to reference the image? Assume the sitemap file is stored and accessed at http://t.example.com/sitemap.xml

What is Target URL domain is outside the website URL domain?

Google search console shows this error:- target URL domain is outside the website URL domain
