implementation of DNS protocols with full IPv6 and DNSsec support

BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Domain) is an implementation of the Domain Name System (DNS) protocols and provides an openly redistributable reference implementation of the major components of the Domain Name System.

The BIND DNS Server is used on the vast majority of name serving machines on the Internet, providing a robust and stable architecture on top of which an organization's naming architecture can be built. The resolver library included in the BIND distribution provides the standard APIs for translation between domain names and Internet addresses and is intended to be linked with applications requiring name service.

BIND 9 is mostly compatible with BIND 8 but is a full rewrite. Its architecture has been designed to take advantage of new computer technology (multi-threading) and to provide full support for new features required by IPv6 and DNSsec.
