http://serverfault.com – I am a dev-op (a software developer who has to do IT on the side). As a website developer, I create DNS host entries on my local Windows 2003 DNS servers - there are two DNS servers in the local domain - so that I can set up IIS7 websites on my Windows 7 development box. My method is to add the given client's domain to a zone on my DNS server; copy across all the MX records from the primary nameserver; add a www A record; and then my own dev A record.
