Our Secondary DNS Services
DNS plays a crucial role in connecting your customers or users to your content. A failed DNS connection is something you can’t afford because it simply means that you are unavailable on the internet. To ensure that you are safely directed to the correct servers we provide Secondary DNS. This is a powerful DNS service that protects against DNS failures. It does not only offer a safe DNS connection but it also protects against several types of cyber attacks. Our Secondary DNS is branded which means that you can use your own DNS names. To be more specific, 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.
Both you and your customers are allowed to manage your own records via your control panel which makes our Secondary DNS quite unique. This makes it much easier to manage and maintain your own data via your control panel especially if you or your customers are frequently changing servers, hostnames or IP addresses.
Because our DNS servers are geographically separated the reliability of your DNS servers will also improve. If one of the DNS servers is down, the domain DNS will be served by the other servers. Our Secondary DNS servers can be used for both VPS servers and dedicated servers starting from only € 5.00 a month.
What you will get with our Secondary DNS
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 for your own names
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.
Both you and your customers can manage own records
Our Secondary DNS allows both you and your customers to manage your own records via your control panel. This makes it easy to maintain your data. Especially if you or your customers are frequently changing machines, hostnames or IP addresses.
Geographically separated DNS servers
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.
DNSSEC support for safety
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.
