|Summary : A DNS (Domain Name System) server.
|Description : |
BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Domain) is an implementation of the DNS
(domain Name System) protocols. BIND includes a DNS server (named),
which resolves host names to IP addresses, and a resolver library
(routines for applications to use when interfacing with DNS). A DNS
server allows clients to name resources or objects and share the
information with other network machines. The named DNS server can be
used on workstations as a caching name server, but is generally only
needed on one machine for an entire network. Note that the
configuration files for making BIND act as a simple caching nameserver
are included in the caching-nameserver package.
Install the bind package if you need a DNS server for your network. If
you want bind to act a caching name server, you will also need to install
the caching-nameserver package.
Many BIND 8 features previously unimplemented in BIND 9, including
domain-specific forwarding, the $GENERATE master file directive, and
the \"blackhole\", \"dialup\", and \"sortlist\" options Forwarding of dynamic
update requests; this is enabled by the \"allow-update-forwarding\" option
A new, simplified database interface and a number of sample drivers based
on it; see doc/dev/sdb for details
Support for building single-threaded servers for environments that do not
supply POSIX threads
New configuration options: \"min-refresh-time\", \"max-refresh-time\",
\"min-retry-time\", \"max-retry-time\", \"additional-from-auth\",
\"additional-from-cache\", \"notify explicit\"
Faster lookups, particularly in large zones.
