Secure DNS

  • Secure and reliable access to your website
  • Extra protection against DNS-based attacks
  • Improved robustness and redundancy

Proven reliability

Robust availability and performance provided by a global DNS network to ensure your website can be reached from everywhere, all the time.

Additional security

Many DNS systems focus on performance, but lack additional security measures in case of an exploit or an attack.

Easy implementation

An uncomplicated implementation as well as a clear and effortless operation, make it as simple as possible for you.

All possibilities
with one solution

DNS attacks are still a regular occurrence for cybercriminals and many companies are targeted by such attacks not only once a year. With Secure DNS, you not only ensure secure access to your website, but also benefit from extra protection against such attacks.

Additional security

Benefit from a reliable DNS service that minimizes downtime, ensuring that this critical interface between users and your web resources is not disrupted. You can also trust that the integrity of the service remains intact by preventing malicious tampering with the DNS server, such as fraudulent redirects.

Protect yourself against common scenarios targeting DNS such as DDoS attacks and DNS poisoning. DNS security is sometimes underappreciated but can lead to outages in your service as quickly as any other DDoS attacks. With Secure DNS, you can continue your core business without interruption.

Redundancy as added value

Thanks to an anycast network with 10 PoPs distributed worldwide, Secure DNS not only ensures you comprehensive service availability, but also provides you with low latency around the globe at the same time.

Each PoP is equipped with more than one DNS server to ensure robustness and redundancy. Redundancy ensures that in the event of an unexpected failure of one node, DNS can continue to operate through the other server, causing no disruption to you or your business.

Features that make a difference

Hidden Primary

The Hidden Primary DNS model allows you to synchronize your own primary DNS with the Link11 DNS via DNS zone transfer. In this setup, you don’t need to expose your origin server as Link11 acts as a secondary DNS that resolves all DNS queries.

This has the advantage that you can fully manage your DNS with your own systems while increasing your security by reducing your attack surface and still taking advantage of the features of our Secure DNS solution.

Lets encrypt Auto-renewal

The DNS solution allows easy TLS certificates management for your WebDDoS instances by using ACME DNS-01 Challenges to generate Let’s Encrypt certificates for the domain at regular intervals.

Your certificates are automatically renewed for you every 2 months. TLS management is a tedious job for many customers, so our solution provides you with an easy-to-use method and ensures greater security by renewing the certificate on a regular basis.

Zone & Record types

Link11 DNS supports primary and reverse zones, as well as all common resource data types, including A, AAAA, MX, NS, CNAME, TXT, SPF, SRV. Secure DNS does not limit you (within technical reason) in how many records each zone can support to allow optimal use of your booked resources.
