"Alternative DNS Servers taught me a few things about my nameserver I didn't know about!" - Bert Hubert, principal author of PowerDNS "The first book to describe NSD and Unbound in excellent detail" -- NLnet Labs "Finally -- a clear, in-depth and accessible guide to using BIND-DLZ! A must read for anyone considering alternate DNS servers." -- Rob Butler - BIND-DLZ project creator & author "... a valuable source of information for every PowerDNS administrator!" -- Norbert Sendetzky (linuxnetworks.de) "The chapter on dnsmasq is comprehensive and clear; it assumes nothing and takes the reader through the process of configuring the program from basics to advanced topics. It is certainly a great improvement on the sparse documentation supplied with dnsmasq." -- Simon Kelley "As the author of MaraDNS, I am very impressed with Jan-Piet Mens' research. The quality of the MaraDNS chapter shows that Jan-Piet has done his homework, and that this is an informative accurate guide for anyone interested in learning more about DNS." -- Sam Trenholme (MaraDNS)
