DNS

What is DNS?

DNS stands for Domain Name System. It is a service that maps a human
readable domain name, like majorursa.net, to a computer readable
numeric address (or dotted quad) 173.230.154.132

Setting up a DNS entry On a DNS server using BIND

There are three files that need to be changed

named.conf

This file contains pointers to zone files for each domain (as well as
some bind configuration directives.)

Add a line at the end of /etc/named.conf that will point to the zone
file for your new domain:

primary         majorursa.net     named.hosts

named.hosts

This is a file with zone information for your domain. It lists the
file where domain configuration is stored.

zone "majorursa.net" {
    type "master";
    file "named.hosts";
};

named.hosts

This is the file where you point each domain name at an IP address or
another domain name
