Lazy Domains

Lazy Domains is simulated domain registrar website used for teaching DNS to students in a classroom environment.

Students get to go through the process of registering a domain name and setting up a DNS server to host the domain.

Please submit comments/questions via the software feedback form.

  • Windows Server 2008 or newer
    • DNS role installed
    • Web server installed with PHP (ZWAMP recommended)

How it works

Each student will create their own DNS server (in the lab/classroom) and register a domain with the Lazy Domains system. A selection of fake TLDs will be available such as .kom and .nett. During registration, Lazy Domains will create an NS record on the class DNS server for the new domain. This NS record points to the IP address of the students DNS server, making the students DNS server the authoritative DNS server for their domain. Students can then manage their own DNS records from their own DNS server.
