    Post How to configure DNS server?


    We configured our DNS server and when use dig domain. com mx or ns we will get answer. If we are giving only domain name (dig domain. com) dig gives 0 answer and full SOA line in the zone file under Authority section. What could be wrong?

    Zone file looks something like following
    $TTL 86400
    1D IN SOA ns1.domain. com. hostmaster.domain. com. (
    2002022401 ; serial
    3H ; refresh
    15 ; retry
    1w ; expire
    3h ; minimum
    IN NS ns1.domain. com.
    IN MX 10 mail.domain. com.
    ns1 IN A

    The reason you get no answer is because you do not have a catch-all configured in your zone file an '@'.
    You do not need one and most if they have one point to their web server.
