MyDNS vs Bind
I am following a "Perfect Server" Debian how to over at howtoforge to see if it is indeed perfect and to see how it differs from what I would set up.
Apart from some rather funky looking anti-spam / virus on the mail server the biggie so far is using the MyDNS DNS server instead of Bind. I've never heard of MyDNS so I am off to Google, but if anyone has opinions on the positives and negatives of both, I would love to hear them.
I'm going to install it anyway - as I said, I'm following the article but I like to know a bit about what I'm installing.
I'm not familiar with MyDNS either, but one negative I see already is that it looks to very slow in development. As far as I can tell, the last release was back in Jan '06, so it's 4 years old already. That would be too slow for my own tastes.
