This is the wrong list to discuss anything except DNS.  Are you planning
on running your own DNS, or are you planning on having it hosted for

If you're planning on running Bind as your own DNS server, then we can

It depends on your computer, the quality of your power and your power

You might have enough RAM to run a nonrecursive nameserver.  I don't
