Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a server hosted on hostgator, and I suddenly find that there's a ~/.dns file created which simply has one line which is the domain of the site itself. What is this file and what is it for?

This is not a standard file and has nothing to do with DNS but likely a file hostgator put on your server for management/administration purpose
