Bind updating root hint data file
This is the IP address of my computer where BIND 9 is running.If you don’t know the IP address of your computer, run ip addr command to see the IP address of your computer.
This file contains the names and IP addresses of the authoritative name servers for the root zone, so the software can bootstrap the DNS resolution process.
A DNS server resolves domain names such as to IP addresses such 192.168.2.10.
Without DNS server, you would have to type in the IP address directly if you wanted to visit example.com, which is of course very hard to remember.
First, navigate to the /var/cache/bind directory with the following command: NOTE: Here, is the domain name and db.is the zone file for the domain name Now you have to tell bind to load the data file db.for the zone
To do that, open /etc/bind/local file with the following command: The new zone should be loaded.
