    Is there a way to make faster DNS queries?
    It seems that the queries take too long to answer and result is DNS request timed out.
    > timeout was 2 seconds.

    Is it possible to cache the DNS?

    What exactly is the problem? Your server is answering too slow, or a remote server?

    I'm not sure.
    How can I measure how fast the Bind responds?
    Is there a way to "cache" the answers?

    You can test local and external servers with the dig command.
