Domain server

Postby Clemzo » Sun Feb 12, 2017 5:56 pm


I need to create a domain on my local network.
Do you think is possible to create a ".esp" or ".dom.esp" domain (I prefere the first one) with an ESP8266 ?

Thank for your help.

I think using mDNS APIs from the SDKs will be the best option for getting this done.
The other option would be to have this ESP server use a static IP and then add a custom domain name record in your clients such that a specific domain name will always point to the IP of the ESP8266 server.

Thanks for your answer.

I have already used the mDNS, but this solution is multicast and the response times are not satisfactory.

Currently I use serverDNS on ESP and external domain server on my LAN.
It is the good way.

Now I want create a domain server with ESP.

Is it possible ?
