Managed DNS: 3 Easy Ways to Get More out of It

When you’re getting started with Managed DNS, there are so many new features that you may not have discovered everything that’s available to you. Or perhaps you don’t know where to begin. Here are some great places to check out for tips that can make your life easier:

  1. You can start with a single sign-on for all your Dynect.net services: Managed DNS, Email Delivery, Internet Intelligence and more…. and you can even enroll your API user very easily in Managed DNS. Find out additional details in Ethan McGarry’s recent blog Customer Tip: Enrolling in DynID.
  2. Next, it’s time to think about admin services. Do you really need multiple DynID admins? Is it even a best practice? And what about admin changes, control of user permissions and keeping full administrator information up to date? Discover things you may have missed by checking out these blogs: Katie Smith’s Customer Tip: Multiple DynID Admins and Janice Blydenburgh’s Customer Tip: What You Need to Know About Administrator Changes.
  3. Finally, you’ll want to ensure that you’re managing your DNS zones as effectively as possible. Did you know that your Managed DNS can create zones to manage your own reverse DNS? Or that you can configure a Secondary DNS to better protect you in the event of a DDoS attack? And what about child zones that let you host records for specific subdomains in a separate zone? If you haven’t already explored some or all of these features, discover more in Ryan Firth’s Customer Tip: How to Manage DNS Zones Effectively.

These blogs are a great place to start getting more out of your Managed DNS service. So, if you haven’t already taken a few minutes to take a look at them, check them out now.
