bind9: example.com works, www.example.com doesnt, and how to block url
I was following a guide to setup bind again after I formatted to Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS.
I can get my domain example.com to resolve but I want "www.example.com" to resolve to the actual domain on the web.
I don't have a webserver setup on my domain at the moment so I would rather it resolve properly.
So "ping example.com" works and resolves to my local address but "ping www.example.com" gives "ping: unknown host www.example.com".
Here is the file db.example.com,
I tried adding in a www entry but it only resolves to the same local ip as example.com so I commented it out.
; BIND data file for example.com
@ IN SOA ns.example.com. root.example.com. (
9 ; Serial
604800 ; Refresh
86400 ; Retry
2419200 ; Expire
604800 ) ; Negative Cache TTL
@ IN NS ns.example.com.
@ IN A 10.11.12.1
;www IN A 10.11.12.1
ns IN A 10.11.12.1
I am planning on adding all of the urls from the ad block site http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.txt to bind so as to block them on my network.
So how would I add this list to bind?
