ClouDNS is an internationally based Internet services company with headquarters in Sofia, Bulgaria. The company also has servers located in North America, Europe and Asia. ClouDNS is relatively new to the DNS industry, having been established in 2010. The company offers domain names and DNS hosting, along with other services.
The company has a number of attractive benefits, including:
- Price: Customers aren't going to find too many DNS companies that offer more competitive prices that they'll find with ClouDNS. Customers can choose from four options, depending on their needs. There is even a free option, with which customers get four DNS servers, three DNS zones, three mail forwards, unlimited records, dynamic DNS and web directs. Other choices will cost just $2 and $3.95 per month.
- Reliability: ClouDNS has a 10,000% uptime guarantee and almost always make good on this promise.
- Manageability: The web interface is simple and easy to manage. The setup eliminates the stress and hassle often found in the industry. Users have access to statistics for your DNS servers on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.
- Security: With 256-bit SSL encryption, ClouDNS will protect customers' data and information and give maximum security. This assurance and peace of mind allows customers to carry forth their business without worry or anxiety.
The amount of DNS features is impressive. Some of the above-and-beyond features ClouDNS provides include: SOA settings, reverse DNS zones, Cloud/bulk domains, domain parking, DNS branding, zone transfers, HTTP API access, and more.
DNS hosting is free of charge, and ClouDNS is able to work with other DNS companies. With ClouDNS, you'll also get total DNS support for CNAME, MX, A, TXT, AAAA, NS, RP and SRV records.
- Time in business
- Customer service
ClouDNS is a young company, meaning it already has a lot of ground to cover when competing against others in the industry. Customers might be more inclined to select a more established DNS provider when consider their web hosting and domain selecting needs.
Customer service has limitations. There is no live chat or email option. Support works on a ticket system. There is not even adequate information on the company's website to give full details on support and what customers can do to have answers to questions and concerns.
The Bottom Line
If customers are willing to take a chance on a company that lacks in experience, they're likely to be pleased with what ClouDNS has to offer. The company has a bevy of DNS features that will please customers who are looking in that realm. If customers are searching for features outside the DNS scope, however, they might want to look elsewhere.
