DNS hosting for your agency

Launch your customers' projects while protecting their domains.

Your clients need an agency that will protect their digital assets. Variety-brand registrars provide DNS hosting, but they're not DNS experts. They can be susceptible to outages, security flaws, slow-downs, and riddled with complexity. As a DNS provider, DNSimple secures your clients' assets with DNSSEC, domain auto-locking, SSL certificate auto-renewal, DDOS-mitigation, and simple multi-factor-authentication for your team and clients.

Organize and deliver

Your customers' domains should never be an afterthought.

Keep your clients' domains organized with different accounts, so they're easier to hand over when projects are completed. Different established billing makes handing over a project simple. Invite customers to take over management, or keep secured access to the account.

Ship on time

Register domain names from our API, and configure DNS records with one click.

Our API lets you automate domain registration, transfer, and DNS records. Your agency can set up re-usable templates that can be applied to multiple domains. For each of your clients, you can set up email redirects, as well as URL forwarding for E-commerce platforms. DNSimple is vendor-neutral and does not lock you in to proprietary technologies.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can we manage hundreds of domains easily?

To manage domains in bulk, automate your processes with code. For this, we offer a simple-but-sophisticated DNS REST API. With it, you can set up hooks for deploying to staging, HTTPS URL Forwarding, and even add email forwarding. For non-coders, we offer templates, which are groups of DNS records, that can be applied to multiple domains at a time.

What makes DNSimple so simple?

Managing DNS is a tedious, technical challenge. DNS providers have historically had cluttered interfaces and processes for maintaining records. Over the last 10 years, DNSimple has focused on simplifying the complex process of dealing with domain registrars. As a result, many common, complicated processes are now down to a single click: SSL registration, DNSSEC, email forwarding, popular third party integrations, and more.

Why shouldn't I use my registrar's free DNS?

Most domain registrars point your domain to their name servers by default. Although this can be convenient, you will most likely experience geographic latency, slower response times, and be more prone to DNS outtages. In this name server environment, your domain shares resources with thousands (or millions!) of other low-rent domains. DNSimple's less-crowded name servers provide geographically-relevant responses to your users, backed by an impeccable uptime record.

How is DNSimple more secure than my current provider?

The most significant security advance for DNS over the last 25 years was the introduction of Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC). This has made it possible for providers to authoritatively confirm data integrity. It's complicated, but we've simplified the process down to a single click. We also offer two-factor authentication, multi-user accounts, HTTPS forwarding, and free Let's Encrypt SSL certificates.

Is my domain locked in to any specific vendor?

No. When you register a domain with DNSimple, you can point your name servers wherever you choose. If you want to keep your domain registered elsewhere and just use our DNS resolver or email forwarding, you can use our name servers. Our policy is to remain vendor-neutral, so our customers are always free to choose the best tooling to get the job done.
