Secondary DNS Features
Future-ready with IPv6
Our Secondary DNS is completely ready for the future. Our DNS servers are supporting both IPv4 addresses and IPv6 addresses. As IPv6 adoption grows, DNS is becoming more and more important as a mechanism to help users using IPv6 hosts.
DNS Branding is an option to use your own brand name for your records instead of ours. For example, you can use ns1.example.com, ns2.example.com, and ns3.example.com instead of ns1.snel.com, ns2.snel.com, and ns3.snel.com.
Manage your Records
You are ready for the future with our IPv6 connectivity. Your dedicated server will be delivered with a free block of /64 IPv6 addresses and will be active from day one.
Our DNS servers are geographically separated. So this improves the reliability of our DNS servers. If one of the DNS servers is down, the domain DNS will be served by the other servers.
Our DNS servers support DNSSEC. The primary purpose of DNSSEC is to make sure that you are safely directed to the correct servers. It protects against man-in-the-middle attacks, pharming, and other types of cyber attacks by matching cryptographic signatures to DNS records.
Secondary DNS servers can serve as a backup for the primary server. If the primary DNS server fails for any reason, the secondary servers can still answer DNS requests, minimizing website downtime.

FAQ Secondary DNS
Secondary DNS, also known as secondary Domain Name System, is a mechanism where you use a second set of DNS servers to replicate domain name data from your primary DNS server. It serves as a backup to ensure the availability and reliability of your DNS services.
By using secondary DNS, you can benefit from several advantages. Firstly, it provides redundancy and failover capabilities. If your primary DNS server is unavailable, your secondary DNS servers can deliver the DNS information. Secondly, it helps distribute the load by spreading traffic across different servers. Additionally, it increases the overall stability and resilience of your DNS infrastructure.
With secondary DNS, the zone data from your primary DNS server is regularly replicated to your secondary DNS servers. This occurs through a process called zone transfer, where your secondary servers retrieve the updated DNS data from your primary server. When a request comes in, a secondary DNS server can provide the requested information even if your primary server is unavailable.
No, setting up secondary DNS is generally not too complex. However, you need to ensure that your secondary DNS servers are correctly configured and synchronized with your primary server. It's usually advisable to follow the settings and guidelines provided by your DNS software or DNS provider to implement secondary DNS correctly.
The number of secondary DNS servers you need depends on your specific needs and requirements. In general, experts recommend having at least two secondary DNS servers for sufficient redundancy. This allows you to distribute the load and provides an additional failover capability if one of your secondary servers goes down.
