Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

What you are referring to is called DNS (Domain Name System) and exists in various 'flavors' on Linux, bind, PowerDNS, .... Have fun with Linux. If you want more specific answers then please provide more detail on what you need to know or with what you're experiencing problems.

Kind regards,

EricTRA is correct, the protocol is called DNS (Domain Name System), but the application used on MOST linux machines is called BIND.


the daemon is called named (for name daemon - named).
