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;
};

example pri/abc.com file :
$TTL 10800
@                       IN      SOA     abc.com. hostmaster.abc.com.  (
                                          2008101601 ; Serial

                        3h         ; Refresh
                        1h         ; Retry
                        1w         ; Expire
                        1h )       ; ttl for negative responses

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.
