A DNS server can be configured to have any number of domains, whether it is running BIND or any other DNS server.

in your named.conf file you would have something like :


zone "abc.com" IN {

        type master;

        file "pri/abc.com";

        allow-update { none; };

        notify no;

};
 

zone "xyx.com" IN {

        type master;

        file "pri/xyx.com";

        allow-update { none; };

        notify no;

};
 
 

zone "111.222.333.in-addr.arpa" {

        type master;

        file "pri/111.222.333.rev";

        allow-update { none; };

        notify no;

};

                        2008101600 ; Serial

                        3h         ; Refresh

                        1h         ; Retry

                        1w         ; Expire

                        1h )       ; ttl for negative responses
 

                IN      NS      ns1.abc.com.

The DNS server is the pointer for those domains.

abc.com => 10.10.10.1
xyz.com => 10.10.10.1

The bind software is configured to resolve these zone
zone abc.com  => record details (SOA, A, CNAME, www, mail)
zone xyz.com  => record details (SOA, A, CNAME, www, mail)

Hi Rindi -
The question was for explanation of how the config file work for DNS.  I provided basic files and in response 22729761 he said
"Yes, this is what i look for.  Excellent support."

So I think that answers it.
