Quality of DNS servers is as important as quality of hosting

image

Your website's speed and performance depend not only on your hosting.

DNS servers are supposed to respond when a user's browser sends a query to find out the IP address of the website. If that doesn't happen, the website will be unavailable despite having a perfectly functional hosting. 

Speed

image

Anycast

A single IP address is allocated to multiple servers thus the response time is decreased.

Advanced server infrastructure

Nods are located in 12 cities around the globe.

Load-balanced traffic

Dozens of servers respond to DNS queries at the same time. If one of them fails, the rest of the servers will remain operational.

Fail-safety

image

DDoS protection

Uninterrupted operation even during peak periods (including DDoS attacks) due to a large number of servers.

Reliable hardware

Regular hardware upgrades. Only reliable manufacturers.

Service features

Branded DNS servers

Your DNS servers may use your own domain name, which is good for your brand.

Dynamic DNS

Dynamic DNS allows using domain names to address network devices with dynamic IPs.

Forward and reverse zones

Support of forward and reverse domains in any top-level domains.

API

API allows creating your own applications.

Settings

For proper functioning of DNS Hosting, you need to delegate domain, i.e. list RU-CENTER's DNS servers in its settings.

Frequently asked questions

  • What is DNS server?

    Computers connected to the Internet have no names; instead, they use hard-to-remember IP addresses (numeric address like 123.123.123.123). The Domain Name System (DNS) makes things easier for humans. It translates more readily memorized domain names to IP addresses needed for the purpose of locating servers.

  • What are DNS servers?

    DNS servers are servers running special software. Originally, they stored only DNS tables containing domain names with corresponding IP addresses, the so-called A records. For example:
    Domain Server's IP address
    nic.ru 115.115.115.115
    Today the DNS also contains other types of resource records: MX, TXT, CNAME, etc. They are required to enable the domain's use as a website address, mail exchange, and other services.

  • What are DNS resource records?

    Resource records are DNS records containing names and corresponding information about servers to which such names must point. Each resource record is required for a specific service. For instance, MX stands for Mail eXchange. MX records are required to ensure email delivery.

  • Why do I have to configure DNS servers for my domain?

    You can't use a website or email with your domain without storing information about your domain on DNS servers. To ensure fail-safety, DNS servers are used in pairs: if one of them fails, it won't affect the website's availability.

  • What is the purpose of dynamic DNS?

    Dynamic DNS provides a persistent addressing method for devices (computers, routers, webcams) with dynamic external IP addresses.

    This service is intended for assigning a good-looking and easy-to-remember permanent domain name to your networking device (such as a router), so that this name will not depend on what kind of IP address is used (dynamic or static). Hostname with dynamic DNS will be mapped to your dynamic IP address. When IP address is changed, dynamic DNS client will send a notification to the servers of the DNS-hosting service with a current IP address, and the changes will be propagated throughout the Internet in a matter of seconds.

  • How to set up dynamic DNS?

    Dynamic DNS is supported on all plans of the DNS-master service. To configure dynamic DNS, you need to get a username and a password in the section Manage your account → DNS-hosting: Dynamic DNS". This login information may be used for configuration of dynamic DNS for all the DNS-hosting services.

    After a new request, previously generated username and password will become invalid. You will have to reconfigure dynamic DNS with new login information. Instructions for developers are available on a special page.
