How to Uninstall a BIND in YUM

The Bind -- or Berkeley Internet Name Domain -- free Linux and Unix name server program provides information about domain names hosted on the system. If you don't host domains and your system doesn't need to provide IP address records about systems, you can safely uninstall Bind to free system resources. Uninstall bind with a single command on Linux computers with Yellowdog Updater Modified -- or YUM -- software.
