More control over your domain name through DNS settings

Easily managing your own DNS domain names from Fuga Cloud is possible with our DNS as a Service. Add your domains to Fuga Cloud and manage the DNS records from the dashboard or the API.

The Domain Name System (DNS) is the system and network protocol used on the Internet to translate computer names into numerical addresses (IP addresses) and vice versa.

In the Fuga Dashboard you get the option to create, change or delete different DNS records for your own domains. Setting a wildcard or subdomain and reverse DNS is also possible here.

The following DNS records can be used within the Fuga DNS as a Service:

A, AAAA, CAA, CNAME, MX, PTR, SPF, SRV, SSHFP, TXT.

Fuga's DNS service

At Fuga Cloud we use many different components. Our DNS as a Service is one of those components, but it certainly does not stand alone. It communicates seamlessly with our Network Service and Compute Service so that records are automatically created when Floating IPs and Compute Instances are created.

Like all other components, our DNS as a Service can be managed via our dashboard, CLI and API.

DNS accelerated with Anycast

Normally, a unique IP address is used and communication from devices connected to the network, will be from source to destination, as 1-to-1. Anycast networks, on the other hand, allow multiple servers on the network to use the same IP address or a range of IP addresses. Communication with an Anycast network is 1-to-many.

So, in Anycast, one IP address can apply to multiple servers. This means that any of these DNS servers can respond to DNS queries, and usually, the closest geographically will provide the answer. This reduces latency, improves DNS resolving service uptime, and protects against DNS flood DDoS attacks.

Advantages of Anycast routing:

  • Faster connections
    Round-trip time (RTT) is greatly minimized by directing users through the closest node. This reduces the number of hops and thus the latency (low latency).
  • Simplified server configuration
    Anycast distributes a DNS server configuration across all your network nodes.
  • High availability
    Should a node become overloaded or even fail, there is a backup through redundancy (an IP address on multiple nodes).
  • DDoS Restriction
    A DDos mitigation is provided if a node fails or is attacked by providing failover alternatives.

DNS-records

With a DNS record, you can set how traffic will be routed to your domain correctly. Below we have listed for you which DNS record types or DNS settings you can use with Fuga DNS as a Service and what they are for.

  • A

    A stands for Address, with this you link an IPv4 address to a (sub)domain = an IP (Internet Protocol) address, for web hosting

  • AAAA

    AAAA (Quad A) records link an IPv6 address to a (sub)domain = an IP (Internet Protocol) address, for web hosting

  • CAA

    A CAA (Certification Authority Authorization) record indicates which Certificate Authority (CA) may issue an SSL certificate for this (sub)domain. = security

  • CNAME

    CNAME (Canonical Name) is used to link a subdomain to another (sub)domain = Domain name aliases, for web hosting

  • MX

    With an MX (Mail Exchanger) record you indicate the mail server so that emails can be sent = SMTP mail exchangers, for email

  • PTR

    A Pointer record converts IPv4 or IPv6 addresses into domain names. = Reverse DNS lookups, for security

  • SPF

    Stands for Sender Policy Framework (SPF) and with this you indicate which domain name or IP address can mail from your domain name = for email

  • SRV

    Indicates the location of a specific server or service

  • SSHFP

    The 'SSH public key fingerprints' where SSH stands for Secure Shell, which is a cryptographic network protocol for secure communication over an unsecured network. = for security

  • TXT

    Represents a TEXT record, for adding plaintext in DNS records. Commonly used for SPF and DKIM records. (both for email)
