    DNS Help Please!

    I have just setup a dedicated server for one of my sites. Everything is ready to go except for one last thing. I have installed Bind9 on my machine (Debian) but could really do with some help! I only want to host one domain on the machine, it will be a .co.uk domain. I will be transfering the domain to 123reg so I can manage the name server entries for the domain.

    Could anyone give me an idea of the steps I need to take now to configure bind for my domain? I can either edit the files directly through SSH or through webmin.

    I have got a rough idea from http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/DNS-HOWTO-5.html but I am struggling.

    Please can anyone give me some direction?

    what you are looking for is probably a split DNS setup. That way your internal machines resolve correctly as well as external. I would suggest picking up a copy of "Linux Administration Handbook". I used it to set my DNS server up internally (have not gone to split yet...) and it was a great help getting me going.
