Implementing Geo-aware DNS using BIND & the most up-to-date IP2Location IP-Country (DB1) database
IP2Location.com, a leading provider of the Internet geo-location software and services for the e-commerce industry, demonstrates how to implement a Geo-aware DNS using BIND & IP2Location IP-Country (DB1) database.
IP2Location allows you to implement a geolocation feature in a BIND DNS server easily. There is no need to patch the BIND source codes as the method being used just involves “Access Control List” and “Views”. A few simple steps are all it takes to implement the Geo-aware DNS. First of all, download the IP2Location IP-Country (DB1) database in ACL format which covers all CIDR IP address range by country (a subscription is required). Next, just add an include line into the BIND configuration file to refer to the ACL file and then custom views can now be created within BIND based on the country information. To view a sample of the BIND configuration, you can have a look at this page http://www.ip2location.com/
There are many uses for a Geo-aware DNS server. The most basic use would be to block users from specific countries from accessing your web servers. Besides that, it is also possible to redirect users from specific countries to web servers that are geographically closer to them for faster response time.
