BIND DLZ

[BIND Dynamically Loadable Zones — concluded in 2005]

BIND DLZ allows DNS data to be modified without interrupting the DNS server's normal operation. It accomplishes this by moving DNS data out of BIND's in memory database into an external database. BIND DLZ works with a large variety of databases and has made flexibility a priority in its design. Additionally, BIND DLZ makes available an API which can be used to create custom drivers to access nearly any database, or provide other functionality such as DNS load balancing.

BIND DLZ is unique in that it builds upon BIND 9, the most recent version of the popular open source DNS server. It is our goal to merge BIND-DLZ into BIND's main source tree in the future, so that the features of BIND DLZ are available in the main BIND distribution.

  • Bind-DLZ is included in Bind since version 9.4. See BIND 9. external link
