I am building a home PHP hosting server for learning.  I have a 
commercial connection to the Internet so no blocked ports and my ISP 
allows servers.

I believe I only need a Primary Master Server.  Is this the case?

My question is, do I need to configure a Caching Server?

In /etc/bind/named.conf.options:


         forwarders {


Do I need to set the forwarders?

Thank you for all your help!!
