Today we release a large upgrade of our system and control panel.
ALIAS record is a new type of DNS record build in the ClouDNS, which works in a similar way as the CNAME record. The ALIAS record allows you to add multiple hostnames for the same subdomain and can be used for the root domain too. This new build in our system type of DNS record gives you a chance to make a Round-Robin DNS between multiple CNAME and A records. All added ALIAS records are updated by our system in a short period of time and when you make a DNS request a the hostname with such record, you will receive an answer with a pure A or/and AAAA records. The new type of DNS record can be added and managed from our control panel or via the HTTP API.
Disable option for DNS zones and records
A new option is available in your control panel. From the profile menu, you can enable a feature for disable option of DNS zones and records. The new disable option is available in both the control panel and the HTTP API. This feature allows you to add directly inactive records and enable them in future when you need to be published in public.
HTML5 graphs for the statistics
All statistics graphs are migrated from Flash to HTML5. Now you can see all statistics on any device with a browser without required installation of Flash Player.
Improved domain registration form
We have updated our domain registration form and now you can register a single domain name or multiple domain names in bulk much easier.

ClouDNS Sales Team
We are starting June with many new features and domain promotions.
As many of you have already noticed, we have added full SPF and DKIM signatures support to our mail forwarding service. This upgrade helps us to deliver the mails on time without spam filtration and rejections. If you manage your own mail server where the e-mails are forwarded to and want to switch to the old mail forwarding without DKIM signatures, you can use mailforward3.cloudns.net and mailforward4.cloudns.net instead of the standard mail forwarding servers.
Do not hesitate to contact our technical support, if you need any help with the mail forwarding configuration of your DNS zones.
We have added a new feature to our control panel - Notes.
The notes can be added for:
- Domain names
- DNS zones
- DNS records
The feature is not enabled by default. If you wish to use notes, you can enable them from "Web settings" in your profile.
HTTP API sub-users - a new feature for the customers with HTTP API access. Now you can create sub-users for HTTP API access. The sub-users can help you to improve your reseller integration via our HTTP API.
- has it's own ID and password key for access to the HTTP API
- has access to specific DNS zones, not to all DNS zones in your account
- has limited number of DNS zones and mail forwards
- can be used for different customers in your system
The sub-users work with new HTTP API parameter auth-sub-id, instead of the parameter auth-id for the main users. More information can be found here.

The Private DNS servers come with unlimited number of DNS zones, records and DNS requests. Everything depends on your DNS settings. For example, for 30,000 DNS zones with 100 records each, we recommend 2CPU cores and 2GB memory, but on the same server configuration can be hosted up to 100,000 DNS zones with 5 or 10 DNS records.
