I am trying to create a zone file which points example.com and www.example.com to my server's IP address. I read the docs, but am still having a hard time with it. Currently, the non-www version works, but the www doesn't. I don't get an config errors when I start bind. Here is my zone file:

$TTL 86400

@ IN SOA ns1.myserver.com.  postmaster.myserver.com. (
                        2010121801      ; serial number YYMMDDNN
                        1800 ; Refresh
                        600 ; Retry
                        864000 ; Expire
                        1800 ; Min TTL
                        )
                IN NS ns1.myserver.com.
                IN NS ns2.myserver.com.


IN A 99.99.99.99
www IN CNAME @

    What does "it is not working" mean? What kind of error do you get?

Why don't you just make an entry like

www IN 99.99.99.99

  • I think you mean 'www in A 99.99.99.99' but yes, this is how I generally handle this. Dec 20, 2010 at 15:55
  • here's the final version that works $TTL 1800 @ IN SOA ns1.myserver.com. postmaster.myserver.com. ( 2010121904 ; serial 1800 ; Refresh 600 ; Retry 864000 ; Expire 1800 ; Min TTL ) IN NS ns1.myserver.com. IN NS ns2.myserver.com. IN A 99.99.99.99 @ IN A 99.99.99.99 www IN A 99.99.99.99
