On-Premise DNS



A single pane of glass for your domains, DNS, and certificates.

How it works:

The Domain Control Plane connects with on-premise systems and third-party services via secure APIs to collect information about your domains, DNS, and SSL certificates. Once this info is imported, you can manage it all directly from DNSimple.

  • Add, edit, or remove DNS records.
  • Register, transfer, or renew domain names.
  • Request and deploy SSL certificates.

Your domains, DNS, and certificates will remain with their respective provider. Manage them inside DNSimple with the option to disconnect from DNSimple at any time.
