PowerDNS is a versatile nameserver which supports a large number
of different backends ranging from simple zonefiles to relational
databases and load balancing/failover algorithms.
PowerDNS tries to emphasize speed and security.
This is the authoritative nameserver that answers questions about
domains that it knows about. It also includes the bind backend that
allows PowerDNS to retrieve domain info from zone files as used by
the "bind" software.
