    Hello,

    I'm currently doing setup of my bind server.

    Thanks for clarification.

    Looks good to me. You don't have to use a CNAME, you can point your www name at an IP address, but CNAME's are more convenient - it allows multiple names to point to one IP, as you're only supposed to have one name entry per static IP address.
