Need to change an external name for a website on our NS1 run'g 7.3

This srvr has been dropped in my lap to manage external names. For now I need to make an update for a new site name, but I don't know what's installed or running on this server. Plus the fact I'm a nooby to Linux. Where do I start? FYI - I have root access and CLI now.

Run these CLI commands:
uname -a
cat /etc/*-version
hostname |cut -f1 -d.
more `find /etc/ -name named.conf`
That should give you a small info about your system.

Do you mean hostname by site name?

Thx I have managed to find my way around and located the file(s). This is going to take some time learning Linux.
