Example: You have no own Nameserver

If you have no Nameserver, you can use our infrastructure.

KeyDNS Unicast

KeyDNS Unicast is free of charge, as long as the respective domains is under our management.

KeyDNS Anycast

Upgrade to KeyDNS Anycast and benefit from the powerful DNS network of our partner DYN.

Using PREMIUMDNSSET=ANYCAST1 activates Anycast for your DNS zone and automatically duplicates and publishes your resource records across the global network of our partner Dyn.com.

In this scenario our KeyDNS infrastructure serves as hidden Master server and the Dyn.com network as Anycast secondary name server set. The feature is optional and can be configured during adding or modifying a DNS zone.

Note

Using Anycast is not free of charge. You can find your pricing in your RRPproxy web interface.

Step 1: Adding a new DNSzone with Anycast in KeyDNS

Command

command              = AddDNSZone
dnszone              = test23.com
rr0                  = @ IN A 1.2.3.4
premiumdnsset        = NULL (DEFAULT) | ANYCAST1 (OPTIONAL)

Response

code                 = 200
description          = Command completed successfully
property[dnszone][0] = test23.com
queuetime            = 0
runtime              = 0.004

Step 2: Activating Anycast for a DNSzone in KeyDNS

Command

command              = ModifyDNSZone
dnszone              = test23.com
premiumdnsset        = NULL (OPTIONAL) | ANYCAST1 (OPTIONAL)

Response

code                 = 200
description          = Command completed successfully
property[dnszone][0] = test23.com
queuetime            = 0
runtime              = 0.004

Step 3: Checking the status of a DNSzone in KeyDNS

Command

command                    = StatusDNSZone
dnszone                    = test23.com

Response

code                       = 200
description                = Command completed successfully
property[dnszone][0]       = test23.com
property[soamname][0]      = ns1.dnsres.net
property[soarname][0]      = tech.dnsres.net
property[soaserial][0]     = 2009081701
property[soattl][0]        = 28800
property[dnssec][0]        = 0
property[premiumdnsset][0] = NULL | ANYCAST1
queuetime                  = 0
runtime                    = 0.004

Step 4: Applying Anycast to a Domain

Please use the following name server set with your domains in order to use the Anycast set after activation by AddDNSZone/ModifyDNSZone

Command

command     = AddDomain
domain      = domain.com
nameserver0 = anycast1.dnsres.net
nameserver1 = anycast2.dnsres.net

Command

command     = ModifyDomain
domain      = domain.com
nameserver0 = anycast1.dnsres.net
nameserver1 = anycast2.dnsres.net
