    I have the following data in my DNS zone file for my domain:

    $ORIGIN mydomain.com.
    @       IN      A       208.X.Y.Z
    mail    IN      A       208.X.Y.Z
    ... etc..
    

    What does the @ line mean?

    @ A Free standing @ is used to denote the current origin.

    This means that @ is a shortcut for the name defined with $ORIGIN.
