I am a highly motivated, results-driven IT professional with 10 years experience, a systems engineer who enjoys working on large-scale systems and challenging problems. I have experience with large number of servers (10.000+) connected via WAN and LAN, which makes it possible for cloud providers to deliver reliable services to customers

My current role is: systems engineer of the team which runs the websites.

On the top of usual systems engineering tasks, I like to develop softwares, my main language is Ruby (and I use Ruby on Rails of course :) ) but I can read and understand (and fix) Perl and Python, however it is not my favorite. I started to learn Erlang recently, which helps me understand the challenges what software developers face with distributed systems.

comment Wildcard DNS with BIND
So if you have 2 zones like somedomain.com and nsdomain.com you have to setup the nsdomain related info in the proper zone. Short answer is yes, you have to set up another zone.
