@ IN SOA @ root.localhost (

is the "root.localhost" part where you would you replace that with the name of the DNS server?

correct, you should replace it with the authoritative name server. You define it's real ip address down in the zone file like you have here below.

and then there's a

; servers
atlas IN A
www CNAME atlas

is the "atlas" part the name of the server your hosting? and does the "www" "CNAME" and "atlas" part is the www the extention for the beginning like in www.bob.net or talk.whatever.org?

right, so atlas.domainName.com would resolve to is a broadcast address, so you should not use), as well as, www.domainName.com
