What are proactive nameservers?

Proactive Nameservers is a patent-pending system that optimizes the nameserver delegation for your mission critical domain names.

Why should I use it?

We have always maintained that any single DNS provider is a SPOF (single-point-of-failure) unto itself. Even the heavily redundant, globally deployed pure play DNS guys (hey, like us!) who do DNS for a living can occasionally experience an outage.

To truly obtain 100% DNS availability and continuity of services, even through an outage at your primary DNS Provider, you need to use multiple DNS solutions - and Proctive Nameservers easily facilitates that.

If you are trying to build high availability and hyper-redundancy into all your online systems, then DNS redundancy via multiple DNS solutions is a requirement, now easily faciliated via proactive nameservers.

How does it work?

  1. It defines backup or spare nameservers and queues up your zone data on them. Your DNS can be handled here at easyDNS, or over on Amazon's Route 53 via our easyRoute53 integration layer, on any other DNS provider or on nameservers you manage yourself.

  2. It makes sure that your currently active and backup / spare nameservers are in sync with your master zone data.

  3. It actively monitors the responsiveness of your current and backup nameservers, ensuring that they are healthy and in sync.

  4. If it finds that the current nameservers are unhealty, degraded or non-responsive, it automatically switches over the nameserver delegation to backup or spare nameservers. When your main nameservers are back in business it will switch it back.

How do I get it?

Proactive Nameservers is available for .com, .net, .org, .biz and .info domains.
