We have released a major update of our system. It includes two main features:
Domain Reseller HTTP API methods
We have added HTTP API methods for registration, transfer, renewal and management of domain names. Now with this functionality you can integrate domain registrations in your custom selling tools and web sites. All orders submitted via the HTTP API for registration, transfer and renewal of domain names will be executed with funds from your account balance. For our existing customers the option for deposit is added to the page with the Balance history. If you are a new customer and want to make a deposit to your balance, you can write us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Templates for the most popular third party tools
We have added a new tool in the control panel of the Master DNS zones - Templates. With this tool you can configure your DNS zone faster and easier with third party tools like Gmail, Blogger or Heroku. Currently we support over 30 platforms and tools. Please write us at email@example.com, if you want other services to be added to the list.
Thank you for the trust to host your domain names with us!

The new servers locations are available to all our Global DDoS protected customers. Check your control panel and add the new servers to your domain names. The new locations come without any additional charges and the price of your current DNS hosting plan will not be changed.
Private DNS Servers
We can offer to our clients who need full white-label and dedicated DNS, a completely new service, Private DNS Servers. They are with dedicated IP's and hostnames and can be used by hosting companies for complete white-label DNS branding. For the release of the Private DNS servers we give 10% live time discount for all new ordered servers. This promotion is valid until the end of March. The prices start from $19/month for DNS server that can handle over 5,000 domain names and 50 milion DNS requests per day. Check all available locations and configurations here.
For your comfort the Private DNS servers can be used with all currently available DNS servers in your control panel. For example, if you have a StartUP plan with 15 DNS servers, you can add two Private DNS servers and the total DNS servers available for your domain names will be 17.
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.
Thank you for beign our Customer!
Today we release a new service included in all our plans - Domain parking. The parking service allows you to display simple web pages on your domain names. Contact form can be added optionally to the page.
The first version of the service includes four web templates:
- ClouDNS Affiliate - Simple web page which displays the text "This domain name is registered for one of our clients." and all links on the template point to your ClouDNS Affiliate link. Each new customer registered from your affiliate link will be linked to your account and you will receive lifetime commission for each payment made from this customer.
- Coming soon - Web page with title and text which you can enter. It can be used for new domain names, where the web sites are not yet released by you.
- Domain for sale - Template with simple text - your-domain.com is available for sale. It is a great choice with optional contact form, if you have domain names for sale.
- Simple cloud - Clean template where you can add title and message.
All templates have an optional contact form, which can be enabled, if you want to receive messages from visitors of your parked domain name.
Parked domain zones can be registered the same way as you register the primary or secondary domain zones. With the parked domain zones you are able to:
- configure title, description, keywords and contact form, which will be displayed on the chosen template
- add TXT, SPF and MX records, if you need to use e-mail with the domain name
- manage the SOA settings, if you want to configure custom e-mail or TTLs
- use Mail forwards, if you don't have mail server, but want to receive e-mails sent to mail boxes with your domain name
- add Cloud domains, if you need many domain names with the same settings and template
- use DNS statistics for detailed information on how many DNS requests are sent for your domain name to our DNS servers
- share the parked zone with your friends or coworkers
Please contact us, if you have any suggestions or recommendations for additional options, which you need for your parked zones.
