I see bind 9.11.4 in centos7, where did you pull 9.11.10 from?

yes, it depends on what you are replacing. commercial SW distributions have
longer period than free.

Redhat (commercial) and Centos (redhat-based) have 10-years security
support.  Debian and Ubuntu have 5-years LTS, Ubuntu provides commercial
support for another 3 years (and company freexian tries to provide ELTS for
debian for some time)

However that does not apply for packages outside of centos.
