When selecting a name server provider, the following seven arguments
in favour of ironDNS® should be taken into account.
Data Protection according to strict European Regulations
The office of ironDNS® is located in Germany, Europe.
For this reason, operation is governed by the strict privacy
policies of the European Union. Passing on statistical data, which
could for example be used to create personal profiles, is therefore
Focus on Core Business
As Internet use for business-critical applications has sharply
increased, so have the challenges for name servers handling
Internet addresses (domain names).
In many cases, the historically grown technical structures are not
sufficient any more at all. This is often recognized too late,
however, namely when DoS attacks, for example, cause Internet
addresses to become unresponsive.
Companies and domain name registrars are often lacking time and
resources to deal with this topic. It is reasonable that they take
care of their core business and leave the operation of the DNS
infrastructure to experts.
Neutrality and Independence
ironDNS® is technically and commercially fully independent of
other participants in the domain market as well as completely
Adhering to Internet standards, ironDNS® can for
example work with registry operators that also conform to these
standards without any problems. Such registries are (among others):
- AusRegistry International
- Central Registry Solutions
- GMO Registry
- Minds + Machines
Software diversity is the basic protection against malfunction and
attacks. ironDNS® is a name server software and service that is
wholly independent of all other name server implementations.
Anycast against Attacks
The anycast technology has proven one of the most useful means
against DoS attacks. So far it has often been used only for
registries though, since it is costly to operate.
Thanks to ironDNS®, however, this technology is now available to
every registrant of Internet addresses (domain names).
The developers of ironDNS® are not newcomers in the domain
business or coming from other careers. More than a decade of
experience with registries, registrar business and end customer care
comes “bundled” with ironDNS®.
Usage of ironDNS® is cheaper than building a comparable service
oneself. It has to be taken into account that ironDNS® offers
flat rates, that is usage-independent tariffs.
The clear pricing structure does not allow for unpleasant surprises
or hidden costs.
