6.4. Domain Data Files

There are two standard files for specifying the data for a domain. These are hosts and host.rev. These files use the Standard Resource Record Format covered later in this paper. Note that the file names are arbitrary; many network administrators prefer to name their zone files after the domains they contain, especially in the average case which is where a given server is primary and/or secondary for many different zones.

6.4.1. hosts

6.4.2. hosts.rev

6.4.3. named.local
