Hello lists,
Can I build bind with mysql support for the domains management? We have lots of child-domains need to be updated usually.Changing config file by hand every time is troubled.So I want to manage the bind with web-gui and update the domains data with mysql.
Thanks for any suggestions.

Hello, list,
I am newbie here, So if i ask something stupid, please don't mad at me.

I have several DNS servers, each hosted more than one hundred thousand
domains. So these servers is a little bit busy. We used a cron job to
refresh all the zone files once a hour. But once a hour is too long for us.
But if we make the time shorter, These servers would have a very very high

The current method to refresh the zone files is using the follow command:
/etc/init.d/named reload

I wonder know is there any another methods could done this for us.

Each response is apprecriated.
