PowerDNS features a large number of different backends ranging from simple BIND style zonefiles to relational databases and load balancing/failover algorithms. According to the PowerDNS website, The PowerDNS Authoritative Server is the only solution that enables authoritative DNS service from all major databases, including but not limited to MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite3, Sybase, Microsoft SQL Server, LDAP and plain text files. DNS answers can also be fully scripted using a variety of (scripting) languages such as Lua, Java, Perl, Python, Ruby, C and C++. Such scripting can be used for dynamic redirection, (spam) filtering or real time intervention. In addition, the PowerDNS Authoritative Server is the leading DNSSEC implementation, hosting the majority of all DNSSEC domains worldwide. The Authoritative Server hosts at least 30% of all domain names in Europe, and around 90% of all DNSSEC domains in Europe. Continue watching this video to learn How to deploy an authoritative DNS server using PowerDNS and PowerDNS Admin on linux ubuntu 20.04 LTS in the cloud on the AWS Lightsail service.
