Small Enterprise DNS Caching Server Recommendation

by phan van   Last Updated July 12, 2019 04:00 AM

I currently administrate an office of about 70 users and will grow to about 100 users in the next year.

My current topology is:

  • The DNS Option in DHCP is now pointing to Google Public DNS.
  • There is no server running in my office

I have read on some sites that it is recommended to use a local DNS Caching Server or a DNS Forwarder Server, then I have built a Bind9 DNS Caching server for testing purpose but I haven't seen any advantages of deploying it yet.

So is there any advantage of local DNS and should I build one for my office?
