dhcpcd is an implementation of the DHCP client specified in RFC2131. It strives to be a fully featured, yet very lightweight DHCP client.
Comments about dhcpcd as a Alternative to BIND
Other protocol: DHCP provides IP addressess pool for internal use and DNS provides (among other) internet names translation0
As far as I know, dhcpcd's only relationship to DNS is that it makes the DNS server's IP address available to the host on which it runs.1
they do very different things. dhcpd provides network initialisation to clients on the local subnet. bind provides name resolution to clients from local to global.0
