DNS Using BIND and DHCP
Domain Name System (DNS) is the backbone of the Internet. Without DNS we would be lost in navigating websites. For many enterprises, choosing a robust DNS solution—one that is easy to manage and able to meet to the needs of the enterprise—can be a challenging task. This chapter focuses on how to design an enterprise-friendly DNS solution using BIND. BIND is an open source DNS implementation that has become the de facto reference implementation ( https://www.isc.org/downloads/bind/ ). BIND stands for Berkeley Internet Name Domain, because the software was developed at the University of California at Berkeley during the early 1980s. Currently, the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) maintains BIND.
