I have created a DNS zone file called '' and trying to resolve the domain name to an local IP address '' . But this is not resolving as desired. Please tell me your suggestions .

Here is how the file looks like. Zone file name

                                        0       ; serial 
                                        1D      ; refresh
                                        1H      ; retry 
                                        1W      ; expire

The best suggestion I can make is to stop what you're doing and learn about DNS. – John Gardeniers Aug 10 '12 at 12:13

Learn about DNS basics first,refer to you need to set up NS and A record for your domain "goodday" after you set up these you need to restart bind.
