Check aliases

Use the command line to check to ensure that the base zone and aliases are properly created with either a dig or nslookup tool. The format for dig from a UNIX command line is:

dig @{one of the assigned name servers} SOA {zone name}

For example: dig @ns1.example.com SOA example.com and dig @ns1.example.com SOA example-alias.com

The start of authority result should be identical between the base and alias zones.
