Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

This may sounds very easy to do but I'm a little confused in the process. I've registered a domain e.g. example.com and want to point it to my server with IP e.g.

I've made ns1.example.com and ns2.example.com at my domain control panel but how do I add the -A records at the server end (Ubuntu).

Do I need to install bind or it can be done without it?

You generally don't need to install BIND. You generally use the registrar's (web-based) tools to configure the registrar's nameserver such that it includes A and other records for your domain.
