This is the RHEL5 Admin manual; applies to Centos also. I've linked the page you need http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...3-bind-zone-rr
Scroll down to 16.3.3 for a complete example.

Thanks. When I run this command and I got this. Did I put a wrong command or something?

You'll need to edit the zone file for your domain:

vi /var/named/chroot/var/named/your-domain.com.db

(be sure to replace your-domain.com with your actual domain name).

Edit your /var/named/chroot/var/named/wemadeusa.com.db file and add the following lines:

$TTL 14400
@ IN SOA ns1.wemadeusa.com. hostmaster.wemadeusa.com. (
2012121301 ; serial, todays date+todays
28800 ; refresh, seconds
7200 ; retry, seconds
3600000 ; expire, seconds
86400 ) ; minimum, seconds


wemadeusa.com. 14400 IN NS ns1.wemadeusa.com.
wemadeusa.com. 14400 IN NS ns2.wemadeusa.com.
wemadeusa.com. 14400 IN A 66.150.173.3

localhost 14400 IN A 127.0.0.1

ftp 14400 IN CNAME wemadeusa.com.
mail 14400 IN CNAME wemadeusa.com.
pop 14400 IN CNAME wemadeusa.com.
smtp 14400 IN CNAME wemadeusa.com.
www 14400 IN CNAME wemadeusa.com.

wemadeusa.com. 14400 IN MX 10 mail


Edit your /etc/named.conf file and add the following line:

zone "wemadeusa.com" { type master; file "//var/named/chroot/var/named/wemadeusa.com.db"; };


Then, execute the following command for the changes to take effect:

/etc/init.d/named restart

Indeed; you need to read the whole chapter I linked to. The named.conf file is the main controlling file for BIND, but it needs a zone file (& possible a reverse zone file) for each domain it controls.
