I have a domain purchased from godaddy.com and dedicated server from cari.net.  I have pointed ipaddress to dedicated server from godaddy's control panel.
How to setup the named server for some domain name  on this dedicated server?  Please explain me the steps in details. The named(bind) server is alreay installed on the server. I am able to run it through following command.
service named options(start/stop/restart/status...)

let's say www.example.com. How to configure it.

Hi. We dont want to spend monthly rental on plesk despite its user friendliness. We have opted for the server without any admin panel. and decided to configue it on our own. I am sure you guys will help me out to learn something from you.
So again
(1)  how to configure www.example.com? 
(2) What are the configureation files related to configure above domain?

Sorry for not including the above important information earlier.

Thanks,
Nirav Pradhan

with your Konsole open enter 'man named.conf' and you should find the syntax and some examples for what you need.
named.conf is the file for dns configuration settings if you are using SUSE you can use YAST if you need the help of a GUI. Different flavors of Linux have different solutions but if you are using the vi editor it is a standardized procedure to open and modify the named.conf file. Don't forget to stop and restart the service after making changes.

I am not sure the cost of the admin panel with Cari.net but I am sure that the tools it provides are worth it. Check it out at Plesk.com the ease that this could be done using that tool alone would make it worth the cost.

You could use mydns (http://mydns.bboy.net/) who is easy to use, not so hard to install and very usefull to add records! You can use it with MyDNSConfig (http://www.mydnsconfig.org/) to manage your records!

I use it and it works very well!
