We're very happy to announce the roll out of an improved DNSimple web interface today to all DNSimple customers. Staying true to our name, the updates to the web interface are all about making DNS simple. Here is a rundown of what has changed and how it will make your experience with DNSimple even better.
As of today we've added two additional NS names to the name server names you can and should use for domains hosted with DNSimple.
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.
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.
As of yesterday, DNSimple now supports NAPTR records and domain registration and transfer of TLDs that require extended attributes through the API.
