How do I make my DNS server resolve external addresses?

Hi guys, I would just like to know what I need to do to make my DNS server resolve external websites, I connect directly to my DNS server from my PC and my DNS can resolve all of the records hosted in it but if, for example I try to go to then it won’t resolve.

I’m using BIND on an Ubuntu 12.04 x64 Droplet.

Thanks in advance, Francis

Forgot semi-colon after } on last line.

You have to allow recursion in named.conf
