Other DNS providers always seemed overcomplicated to me. Once I discovered that DNSimple had solved that problem, I moved all my domains and I haven't looked back. Over time, it has only improved. Iā€™m a happy customer.

Reliable DNS is important to a web server project. DNSimple offers a good balance of advanced features and usability, which mirrors the values of the Caddy project. We're happy to be using DNSimple to resolve Caddy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I pay for DNS? It's a free service with my current registrar.

We're the best DNS provider out there, and we provide a streamlined system for managing all of your domains easily. You can also register a domain with us, or buy an SSL certificate.

Use our API to automate anything you want. Even if you don't code, you can automate the management of records with one-click services, or create your own templates.

Plus we bet your current registrar doesn't let you manage your domains from Slack. We do.

Is there a discount for yearly service?

Yes, you get 2 months free when you choose a yearly plan.

Can I switch to any plan at any time?

Yes, you can switch to any plan at any time.

You can even split your personal domains and business domains on different accounts and plans. Choose the level of service and features that you need for each account.

Do I need to register or transfer a domain to use your service?

No, you don't need to register or transfer a domain to manage your DNS with us. Add the domain to your account and update the name servers at your registrar to point to our name servers.

Can I transfer my domains out?

Absolutely. You can transfer out your domains to another registrar at any time. There are no long-term contracts.

For additional uptime and redundancy, can I use DNSimple alongside another DNS providers?

Yes, you can use DNSimple as your Secondary DNS provider or use it in conjunction with your zone's primary DNS provider. To learn more about how to set up your secondary DNS configuration, visit our Secondary DNS support articles.

What if you don't support the TLD for the domain I want to register?

We try to support as many TLDs as we can. If we don't support it, ask us. In some cases, we can quickly add a new TLD.

You can always keep domain registrations at your other registrars and manage the DNS with us.

Can I allow other users to access the domains and their DNS configuration?

With professional and business plans, you can add as many users as you want to an account.

I have more questions.

Sure! We'll be happy to answer them. Email us at support@dnsimple.com and we'll get back to you in less than 24 hours.
