    Hello people,

    I have domain.net but I recently bought domain.com and want a redirect to domain.net when accessed via www ftp or mail.
    I wish that when I access www.domain.com the browser should instant redirect me to www.domain.net. I want www.domain.com to be an alias for www.domain.net . I managed to set this up by defining domain.com as a separate zone with it's own settings, then modified index.html to redirect to www.domain.net but I don't like that, doesn't seem proffesional enough :)
    So I tried a DNAME setting but still doesnt' work. Can't seem to find www.domain.com online on any service.

    I will post my config:


    /etc/bind/named.conf

    Code:
    options {
            pid-file "/var/run/bind/run/named.pid";
            directory "/etc/bind";
            auth-nxdomain no;
            /*
             * If there is a firewall between you and nameservers you want
             * to talk to, you might need to uncomment the query-source
             * directive below.  Previous versions of BIND always asked
             * questions using port 53, but BIND 8.1 uses an unprivileged
             * port by default.
             */
            // query-source address * port 53;
    };
    
    //
    // a caching only nameserver config
    //
    zone "." {
            type hint;
            file "db.root";
    };
    
    zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" {
            type master;
            file "db.local";
    };
    
    
    zone "domain.com" {
            type master;
            file "pri.domain.com";
    };
    zone "domain.net" {
            type master;
            file "pri.domain.net";
    };
    //// MAKE MANUAL ENTRIES BELOW THIS LINE! ////
    zone "zzz.yyy.xxx.89.in-addr.arpa" {
    	type master;
    	file "rev.yyy.xxx.89.in-addr.arpa";

    I also set up as name server ns1.domain.net for domain.com at the company from witch I bought the domains.

    It must be CNAME, not DNAME.

    Are you sure? On some other forum someone said to me to put DNAME for a domain that I want to resolve to another domain. If i have example1.com and example2.com, how do I define both so each one ends up on the same page? Let's say I own yahoo.com ( :D ) and google, and I want when someone accesses www.google.com to automatically get on www.yahoo.com. How can I define that in bind without making 2 separate zone files with all the zone declarations (www,ftp,mail etc...) and redirect in index.html ?

    There's a DNAME record indeed (http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=19798 ), but I haven't worked with it so far.

    I'd create a CNAME record:
    Code:
    www.google.com. CNAME www.yahoo.com.
    and then add www.google.com as a ServerAlias to the www.yahoo.com vhost.
