PDNS-Admin, or PowerDNS Administrator, is a PHP script which aids in administering domains and records for the PowerDNS SQL name server software. PDNS-Admin is targeted mainly toward individual domain owners, but should be robust enough to be used in a larger capacity by an ISP or other big host. For those who may not know, PowerDNS is a domain name server application, much like Bind, but offering alternative backends for the storage of domain information. Among those backends is an SQL database. PowerDNS is very easy to setup and get running, but lacks any kind of interface to manage the data once it''s in place. That''s where PDNS-Admin comes in.
