1. Introduction to MyDNS

MyDNS is an Internet domain name server. It is unique among DNS servers in that it was designed explicitly to work with an external SQL database.

At the moment, two popular open-source databases are supported: MySQL and PostgreSQL.

The primary goals of the MyDNS package are stability, security, interoperability, simplicity, and speed. But not necessarily in that order.

This manual assumes that the reader has a working understanding of basic DNS concepts and their SQL server.
