Name servers

Benefit from the various InterNetX name server products through AutoDNS!

InterNetX Name Server Products

Our redundant name server infrastructure with several server locations in and outside Europe is available to all InterNetX customers free of charge.

Additionally, InterNetX customers can create virtual name server instances. This allows you to present yourself as a independent name server provider in the DNS/Whois. You can also use virtual name servers with your own IP addresses

External dedicated name servers can be connected with AutoDNS. Using as many name servers as possible at different locations in parallel greatly increases the stability and availability of a domain portfolio.

NodeSecure is the AnyCast name server service by InterNetX. The NodeSecure name servers are distributed worldwide and guarantee an extremely high availability with short access times. 

InterNetX name servers

InterNetX provides a redundant name server infrastructure on several locations in Europa and abroad to all of its customers. Using the InterNetX name servers is free of charge for all domain customers. The InterNetX name server infrastructure is constantly being updated to keep up with the current performance requirements and is being monitored 24 hours a day by our network specialists. The zone administration can be handled conveniently and in real-time through AutoDNS or the XML API.

Virtual name servers

 The InterNetX name server infrastructure also enables you to use your own virtual name server instances. This allows you to present yourself as a name server operator in the DNS/Whois, completing your professional appearance of your company. Example: ns1.yourcompany.com/ns2.yourcompany.com.

Virtual name servers with own IP addresses

If required, you can also use your own, exclusive IP addresses. The zone administration is handled conveniently and in real-time through AutoDNS or the XML API.

NodeSecure: Anycast and DNSSEC

NodeSecure is the AnyCast name server service by InterNetX. The NodeSecure name servers are distributed around the world and guarantee an extremely high availability and fast access times.

Unicast vs. anycast

Unicast is the common standard for the provision of the Domain Name Systems (DNS). Each name server has a unique IP address. DNS requests of the client to the name server need to reach exactly this IP regardless of its location. This can lead to longer running times or even timeouts. In case a name server cannot be reached, all services under the IP will be affected.  

With anycast the requests are sent directly to the nearest available name server. This guarantees short response times. In addition, NodeSecure offers high availability of the DNS. If a name server location is restricted, the request will be automatically forwarded to the next name server.

  • New York (US)

Connecting external dedicated name servers to AutoDNS 

Using as many name servers as possible on different locations in parallel greatly increases the stability and availability of a domain portfolio. This better protects domains against DDoS attacks (Distributed Denial of Service attacks) in the DNS (Domain Name System). Additional stability and security for reaching a domain can be reached by combining the existing InterNetX name server infrastructure with one or several external name servers. The zone administration of internal and external name servers is carried out conveniently and in real-time through AutoDNS or the XML API.

Features:

  • Compatible with PowerDNS (versions 2.92 and 3) and BIND (Version 9)
  • Providing a Rest API for the local installation on the customer's name servers
