SUMMARIZE adding a new domain

When a new named.domainname file is created and the named.boot is
updated to recognize such file, the new step is to have the dns process
take notice of the changes.
There are two ways of doing this:

1. killing the process like this:
        ps | grep in.named
    and then kill -1 pid (pid is the one you got in the previous step).

2. telling the process to hang up and read his database again
        ps | grep in.named
    and then kill -hup pid

Though, some people say there is no trouble at all with killing the
process with a simple
kill -1 pid and then restart the process manually. I have been doing it
this way for some time and I haven't noticed anything weird, but I'd
rather do it the better way.
