The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) Server allows a standard way of naming the many types of objects and resources that exist in distributed UNIX environments, and provides operations for storing and retrieving information about these objects. BIND Servers collectively manage a hierarchical name space that is partitioned into domains reflecting administrative entities. Many existing UNIX applications, particularly mail facilities, will benefit greatly from such a service.
