DNS server - Why?


Recommended Posts

Hello guys.

So I've got a little "home-server" running on my network.

You know, basic stuff (Apache,MySQL,SSH,VPN,Webmin,FTP,Proxy etc.)

I've heard that a lot of people uses their own DNS server on their network.

And my question is why?

Why would I "need" a DNS server on my network? Pros and Cons.

It also often speeds up name-resolving if you run a caching DNS-server like BIND .

It's also more censor-ship resistant than using your ISP's DNS-server, especially if you live

in countries like Saudi-Arabia, Iran, North Korea, China, Denmark, Libya ..
