How to Install and Configure a Simple DNS (BIND) Server on Debian 9

In the following tutorial, we’re going to go through the process of installing and configuring a simple DNS (BIND) server on your Debian 9 VPS. This will allow you to host/manage the DNS records for your domain/s.

Before we proceed with the setup process, let’s first talk about what the Domain Name System (DNS) is, as well as what a DNS server is.Installing and Configuring a Simple DNS BIND Server in Debian 9

The Domain Name System (DNS) is technology that resolves the domain names/hostnames to IP addresses so that we can easily access the services using domain names instead of using IP addresses. For example, if you wanted to visit a website through its IP address, you’d have to enter a specific IP in the web browser’s address bar. But with the DNS, you can simply type “your_domain.com” to get there much more quickly. It’s easier to remember, and it’s more user-friendly. That’s why people consider the DNS as “the phonebook of the Internet”. Nobody wants to remember an IP, but everyone can and does remember a domain name. A Domain Name System uses DNS servers for its functionality, so a DNS server is any authoritative DNS host registered to join the Domain Name System (DNS).

What Is VPS Hosting?

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is an isolated virtual machine on a physical server. It is sold as a service by an Internet hosting provider. There can be dozens of VPSes created on a single physical server, depending on the specifications of the physical server. A VPS has its own IP address and runs its own operating system (OS), and customers usually have superuser-level access (root access), to that virtual machine, so they can install any software that runs on that OS. VPS web hosting is a way to build a website on a server that offers more power, security and stability. Falling in between the more traditional shared hosting and the very expensive dedicated servers of huge organizations, virtual private servers (VPS) offer the best of both worlds.
