I'm new to webmin and would like to use it for three sites.

Do I have to create a new master zone for each of my sites?

Thanks in advance.

Are those sites on different domains? E.g. example1.com, example2.com Or are they on the same domain, but different subdomains? site1.example.com, site2.example.com – paulmorriss May 18 '12 at 16:28
yes, Actually I have site1.co, site2.com, site3.org for example – Alireza Hos May 18 '12 at 16:29

It depends if you're using webmin to manage your own DNS or whether your using another company's DNS. This article explains it well (even though it's about a specific hosting company): http://rimuhosting.com/support/bindviawebmin.jsp

I have BIND DNS server, does that mean I can manage my own DNS? – Alireza Hos May 18 '12 at 16:33
Yes, but to do so you'd have to register a domain as a nameserver, i.e. buy a domain and register the ip that it serves names for. – Leo Dec 23 '12 at 15:35
