"DNS is a service that converts a name to an address. Simple, obvious, and necessary. The system is available on most networks, and makes the Internet feasible. However, with this flexibility comes complexity. In order to properly configure and maintain the system, most administrators require a source of information that is well-organized, well-written, and easy to navigate."

"DNS and BIND"...is a well-written guide that is targeted at system administrators. The book addresses setup, maintenance, and other issues involved with using BIND under Unix to provide DNS."

"Throughout the book, the authors provide both information and examples to guide the reader. Each chapter is dedicated to a specific feature or feature set available under BIND. The book covers the two versions of BIND most commonly found in modern networks, BIND 4 and BIND 8."
