DNS user interface and management
The MANAGED DNS portal allows users to manage every zone record for domains subscribed on the service. Every current record (SOA, A, CNAME, MX, TXT, NS…) can be managed directly. The service also provides multi format (BIND, CSV and Excel) that can be submitted through the Team and complete multi aspects Reporting features.
Our DNS service supports zone- and record-level TTL configurations and can easily provide zone reporting, at no charge, in BIND, CSV, and Excel formats. We also offer web redirections (URL forwarding). This service includes support for 301/302 redirection and frame-grab (stealth) capability.
The portal is secured through Two-Factor Authentication, which guarantees against Phishing attacks by requiring a one-time password in addition to the usual logins.
Robust and reliable Global DNS infrastructure
Apart from resolving from 17 sites worldwide (Europe North America, Asia), site locations are adjusted over time as conditions, such as Internet traffic patterns, change. Given the distribution of hosts and original locations of the DNS query load, 60% of the resolution sites are currently located on the East and West Coasts of the United States, with the remaining 40% hosted in Europe and Asia. For maximum coverage, growth allowance and physical redundancy, no less than three sites are maintained in each targeted geographic area.
Verisign® Managed DNS Service relies on the Advanced Transaction Look-up Signaling (ATLAS®) platform for secure, consistent and accurate DNS resolution. As the platform used for global DNS resolution by the .COM and .NET registries, ATLAS performs at 100 times the processing capacity of the standard BIND technology to maintain the speed and reliability of connections, as well as integrate new protocols quickly and efficiently. Additionally, ATLAS is less vulnerable to security flaws than BIND-based DNS platform.
