In Internet computing, NSD (for "name server daemon") is a server program for the domain name system (DNS). It was developed by NLnet Labs[?] of Amsterdam, from scratch as an authoritative name server (i.e., not supporting the recursive caching function). One of the Internet root servers[?] was switched to NSD on February 19, 2003.
