In Windows DNS how to know who can register their hostname?

I just wondering how restriction or permission is given in Windows DNS. Is any devices can register in my Windows 2008 DNS? How can check who has access to register?



This is all done via the DNS Management Console for each individual zone that you have. Typically only administrators, or specific build-in groups by default have the ability to make these changes unless you specifically provide rights to the user. DNS is dynamic so users should not have to do anything on there end anyways.

Another note is that you can have secure and nonsecure dynamic updates. It is always a good idea and recommended to have secure ONLY unless you have a requirement for non secure as well. Take a look at the below link which outlines what I have said in further detail.

Ok I see so you mean the rights are given in the security tab from properties of the zone like this?:



The screenshot is correct to what i was referencing. Difference between secure and non secure is the type of protocol being used to allow users to add/modify or remove DNS records from a specific zone. The below link provides extremely detailed explanation on how this process works.
