In this video, Chaim Krause creates the first zone file for his domain. He also demonstrates how to configure BIND to load the zone. Learn some tools to check your work.
- [Instructor] Now that we've got our domain registered,…let's go ahead and configure our BIND server…so that we can serve up to people who query it,…various IP addresses, based on host name.…After all, that's what this is all about.…The zone file is where we keep that information,…and we're going to create a zone file…for our new domain or zone.…So I'm going to fire up nano here.…You can use any editor you choose,…and you don't have to do this on the name server box itself;…you can do this on any box…and then transfer the files over to your name server.…
So if you've got a favorite text editor,…favorite version control,…you can work in that environment…and then transfer you files over.…The zone file starts out with origin…and the site that we're creating.…So we've registered tinjaw.site for this purpose,…and we're going to give it a default TTL of 3M.…So we're taking advantage of the BIND extensions there…instead of having to put this in seconds,…we can put it in human-readable form or three minutes.…
Why am I using such a short default TTL?…
