What is MaraDNS ?
MaraDNS is a free open-source computer program written by Sam Trenholme
. I wrote MaraDNS while I was
a college student and a travelling English teacher during the first
2000s decade. Now that I’m working as a professional software developer,
the program is finished: I only provide bug fixes and other basic
maintenance unless I’m getting paid.
MaraDNS implements the Domain Name System (DNS), an essential internet
service. MaraDNS is open source software: This means that anyone is
free to download, use, and modify the program free of charge, as
per its license.
People like MaraDNS because it’s small, lightweight, easy to set up, and
remarkably secure. It’s also cross platform — the program runs both in
Windows and in UNIX clones.
More information describing MaraDNS is on the overview
and summary page.
The most recent version of MaraDNS is MaraDNS
