-For those wishing to set up a more robust local nameserver, or if you plan on running a public [[tier1|Tier 1]] or [[tier2|Tier 2]] server for OpenNIC, configuring BIND with slave zones is the preferred method. Please read the policies before running a public T2 server. You should also join the appropriate [[mailinglist|MailingLists]] so you'll be notified of changing situations which may affect your operation.+For those wishing to set up a more robust local nameserver, or if you plan on running a public [[tier1|Tier 1]] or [[tier2|Tier 2]] server for OpenNIC, configuring BIND with slave zones is the preferred method.

 Slave zones contain the full record of domain names for each OpenNIC TLD. When a query is made for an OpenNIC domain, you have the exact information needed to proceed directly to that domain, thus eliminating several hops in processing a query. Note that the only difference between a Tier 1 and Tier 2 server is that Tier 1 servers do not process public queries for ICANN domains - they ONLY process OpenNIC TLD requests. Slave zones contain the full record of domain names for each OpenNIC TLD.
