Wildcarddnsd is an authoritative turn-key DNS server. It differs from a general-purpose DNS server such as BIND in reduced functionality. However Wildcarddnsd is only 7 year old with only 7.1 human work-years behind it. Compare this with many human resources of BIND development.

Wildcarddnsd runs on OpenBSD, FreeBSD, Linux, and with minor patchwork on Mac OS X. NetBSD may also work.

The Wildcarddnsd homepage is found at centroid.eu.


The wildcarddnsd daemon is written in the C language. It was developed on OpenBSD and tries very hard to not have an overflow by useing strlcpy/strlcat when possible.

Name change

As of Friday November 14th, 2014, the wildcarddnsd project has been renamed delphinusdnsd. The new project is found here:


10 Year Anniversary

In November 2015 delphinusdnsd is 10 years old.


The next release of delphinusdnsd will have DNSSEC support. And maybe even TLSA support.
