Bind 9 DNS Administration Reference Book

This BIND 9 DNS Administration Reference Book (1st Ed.) corresponds to BIND 9.5. The Second Edition (ISBN 978-1-937516-03-1) covers BIND 9.10 and some older and newer versions. BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Domain) is the most commonly-used DNS server on the Internet. BIND provides the named DNS server, a resolver library, and various tools for operating and verifying the DNS server and configurations. The BIND 9 implementation includes DNSSEC for signed zones, TSIG for signed DNS requests, IPv6 support, incremental zone transfers (IXFR), dynamic DNS, zone change notifications, EDNS0, multiple views, multi-processor support, and more. This printed book is based on a variety of open source documentation included with the BIND source code, including the definitive references for the configuration syntax and grammar and the usage of the BIND programs. New chapters and content were added, including many examples and detailed indexing and cross-referencing. This book is outdated; consider the Second Edition (ISBN 978-1-937516-03-1) instead.
