 +# DNS Translation File
 +
 +A DNS Translation File consists of a list of [DNS](../​d/​dns) name pairs, consisting of a *match* and a *replacement*. When the file is used, the *match* is converted to the *replacement*,​ which is then passed to the [resolver](../​r/​resolver).
 +
 +Special characters can be used in the match:
 +
 +^ Character ^ Usage ^
 +| `?` | Wildcard for a single character. |
 +| `*` | Wildcard for multiple characters. |
 +| `#` | Comment. |
 +
 +**Note:** Wildcards can only be used in the match, not the replacement.
