The dialog to create a domain name is similar to the one used to create an IP reverse mapping. The first field is either a domain name or an IP number.
You must enter the domain name. A domain name is a series of names glued together with dots. For example:
can be read as the sub-domain
solucorp, part of the sub-domain
qc, itself part of the top-level domain
Unless you have an isolated network, you must request an official
domain name. Say you want to register the domain
will have to request permission from the authority managing the
com. If later you want to setup the domain
sub.foo.com, you will have to ask yourself, since you
will be the authority of the domain
Your Internet Service Provider will help you to select a proper domain name.
If you are not connected to the Internet, you are free to set up any domain you want.
When setting up a pseudo domain for IP reverse mapping, just enter the prefix of the network number. For example, if you are setting an IP reverse mapping for network 192.168.1.0, just enter 192.168.1. You can also enter the longer 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa and Linuxconf will translate that correctly.
