BIND ( /ˈbaɪnd/), or named (/ˈneɪmdiː/), is the most widely used DNS software on the Internet. On Unix-like operating systems it is the de facto standard.

Originally written by four graduate students at the Computer Systems Research Group at the University of California, Berkeley (UCB), the name originates as an acronym from Berkeley Internet Name Domain, reflecting the application's use within UCB.

BIND was first released with Berkeley Software Distribution 4.3BSD, and as such, it is free and open source software. Paul Vixie started maintaining it in 1988 while working for Digital Equipment Corporation. As of 2012, the Internet Systems Consortium maintains, updates, and writes new versions of BIND.

Famous quotes containing the word bind:

    It is always possible to bind together a considerable number of people in love, so long as there are other people left over to receive the manifestations of their aggression.
    Sigmund Freud (1856–1939)

    We may consider each generation as a distinct nation, with a right, by the will of its majority, to bind themselves, but none to bind the succeeding generation, more than the inhabitants of another country.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    Since the death instinct exists in the heart of everything that lives, since we suffer from trying to repress it, since everything that lives longs for rest, let us unfasten the ties that bind us to life, let us cultivate our death wish, let us develop it, water it like a plant, let it grow unhindered. Suffering and fear are born from the repression of the death wish.
    Eugène Ionesco (b. 1912)
