    is there some way that i can park domains or whatever is it by just point the DNS to my server

    lets say i have domain ABC.COM i need just when i put my NameServers on domain ABC.COM (pointing it) this make the ABC.COM show something on the server __WITHOUT setup anything or creating anything on the server__

    ( i have hundreds of domains and need it to show the same thing -something like parking-) and it's too difficult for me to park it ONE-BY-ONE on the server ..

    If the domains are using the DNS on your server, you will need to add
    the domain to the DNS server for the domain to work which could be
    done via WHM or manually be editing the /etc/named.conf file and
    creating the /var/named/(domain).db file. The later could easily
    be generated at once by a simple shell script to save time.

    An alternative would be to keep the registar's DNS servers on the domain
    instead of your DNS servers and set a fixed IP address from the registrar
    which would mean you would not have to do any DNS setup at your server
    but you would still probably take up time setting everything at the registrar
    so I'm not sure that would really save you any time.

    Now as far as the web goes, if you are not trying to park the domain to
    any specific web site, you could just skip that step and your domain
    will point to whatever domain is the first account listed in httpd.conf
    at that particular IP address.
