Enterprise Installation of DNS and BIND

General Information

DNS is at the very core of the Internet infrastructure and stands for Domain Name Server. DNS is a distributed, hierarchical database without which we would be typing IP addresses in our browsers instead of something like www.example.com. BIND can serve 1000s of host names and probably 1000s of zones. This how-to is aimed at that kind of installation. I will describe installing, configuring and maintaining BIND on a fresh FreeBSD installation in a secure chroot jail. I will also show how to set up zone files for one zone, multiple zones and a slave for other zones. I will also describe how to maintain your zones in a way that is easy.
