Want Faster, Easier-to-Manage DNS? Use Dnsmasq

Sure, you can use BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Domain) for your Domain Name Server (DNS). BIND is almost everyone’s favorite domain name server software and I’ve installed and managed it before. But, and it’s a big but, full-scale BIND can be a pain to run. So, unless I really need BIND’s full power, I use another program: Dnsmasq.

Dnsmasq is an easy-to-use and -setup caching DNS server. Stop laughing! It really is easy!
