What happens when things break and you can't get in via the web
server? You and your replacement both need to know how to administer
everything from a command-line prompt. If you don't (or they don't),
then you are screwed because sooner or later you (or they) are going
to *need* to be able to do this.

Use the BIND 9 mechanism of "Views". Start with the information
available at <http://www.menandmice.com/9000/9300_DNS_Corner.html>,
and then buy a copy of the book _DNS and BIND_ (written by Paul
Albitz & Cricket Liu), and make sure that you get the 4th edition.
