DNS Server – BIND DNS Server on Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS
BIND9 is an open-source, flexible, and full-featured DNS software widely used on Unix/Linux due to its stability and high-quality performance.
The perfect solution for providing DNS resolution to your servers in AWS and clients on-prem or in the cloud. This Ubuntu server also comes with Webmin GUI allowing you to manage your server via the server’s web portal, making it easier to manage DNS via a GUI. You can also manage DNS via the SSH terminal.
BIND can act as an authoritative DNS server for a zone and a DNS resolver at the same time. A DNS resolver can also be called a recursive name server because it performs recursive lookups for local clients
