bind

The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) implements an Internet name server for Unix operating systems. The BIND consists of a server (or `daemon') called `named' and a suite of associated tools and libraries. A name server is a network service that enables clients to name resources or objects and share this information with other objects in the network via the Domain Name System (DNS).
