I'm looking for recommendations for a Linux based DNS caching server. Something really fast and stable. What's the best DNS server software out there?

BIND is one of the most popular DNS server in Linux environment. djbdns is another option.

Another vote for bind. You might even want to take a look at a service such as DNSMadeEasy or DynDNS for high preformance.

+1 vote for BIND. We use BIND. It is the most popular DNS server.

BIND had 80+ vulnerabilities over the last 10 years.

If you want something fast and stable, but you don't want to run after emergency upgrades every second month, then check out dnscache from the djbdns suite, or maradns.

bind is stable and many people are using it so if you have problems you will get for sure support.
