Keep your TLDs running seamlessly and securely with our suite of world-leading DNS products:
- Emergency Registry DNS Service (ER-DNS)
Always on standby to combat catastrophic registry DNS failure. Think tech outages or natural disasters.
- Registry Secondary DNS (RS-DNS)
A secondary service, used in parallel with other active nameservers, that accelerates resolution and adds resilience. Updated straight from the master server.
- Registry Public DNS (RP-DNS)
A complete, authoritative public DNS service, updated straight from your hidden master. Can be used as an optional secondary service.
- Registry Public Signed DNS (RPS-DNS)
Removes the complexity of DNSSEC-signing your TLD. Takes an unsigned zone from your hidden master, signs it, and serves it up.
