Setup Bind – Forwarders To Open DNS / Google public DNS

Here is my bind9 / named config.

This is located in named.conf.options

I am using opendns and google public dns as my forwarders. This is the only real config you need to do , if you want to setup your own bind caching server.

forwarders {;;;;

// Using a combination of open dns, google dns, open dns, google dns – I doubt you would ever be down due to a dns outage with this setup.
