    Unless you are masochistic, or have a very complex setup, use dnsmasq rather than bind. It is much simpler, much lighter in resources, and has a better security record.

  4. Ragu Bhat says:

    The local DNS cache disappears on a reboot as it was held in memory. What to do? Try installing a caching nameserver ‘pdnsd’ which writes back the cache to your local disk on a reboot, reusing the same cache after the reboot of the system.

    apt-get install pdnsd
