DNS Simplified: MX Records

MX stands for Mail eXchange. MX Records tell email delivery agents where they should deliver your email. You can have many MX records for a domain, providing a way to have redundancy and ensure that email will always be delivered.

Features

WHOIS Privacy Protection

I've just rolled out a new feature for DNSimple called WHOIS Privacy Protection. For DNSimple customers that register with us or transfer domains into our system we can now make your WHOIS information private by putting a third-party in between you and spammers. For $8.00 per year per domain your email address and physical address will no longer be shown in WHOIS output. Email will be routed to you through a proxy email address.

Features

NAPTR and Domain Registration through the API with extended attributes

As of yesterday, DNSimple now supports NAPTR records and domain registration and transfer of TLDs that require extended attributes through the API.

Updates

DNSimple Maintenance

The DNSimple web site will be taken offline tonight for a short maintenance. DNS resolution should not be affected, although new records make take a few minutes longer than normal to show once the system is reactivated. We will post updates here as they become available. Thank you for your patience.
