When you subscribe to some of our DNS hosting packages, you gain access to different name servers. Most of them are part of our Anycast network, except for Private DNS products. These name servers have shared IP addresses and are used by many customers. If you would like to have your own DNS server, like Private DNS, you will not have access to our Anycast network. This is why we have created the Dedicated IP addon. This way, you can have any subscription that is using our Anycast network combined with Dedicated IP addresses, PTR records and custom names.
Name servers with Dedicated IP addresses are used for a full white-label (Vanity DNS) service, with custom server names and PTR records and only your DNS zones will be using these IP addresses. Once activated, you can use them as any other name servers.
To apply those name servers you need to configure a proper Branding setup to your DNS. Click here to access our guide regarding this matter, or ask our support operators for assistance.
Dedicated IP addresses are Addon to our Premium DNS, DDoS Protected DNS, and GeoDNS subscriptions. Once you have an active Premium, DDoS Protected, or GeoDNS subscription at ClouDNS, please contact us for further assistance.
Dedicated IPs add-on costs $25.00 USD per month. It equips your subscription additionally with 4 IPv4 + 4 IPv6 Dedicated Anycast IP addresses with custom server names and PTRs for full white-label (vanity DNS) service.
In order for our Dedicated IPs addon to be canceled, you must contact our support operators and they will forward your request to our Admins. Please, bear in mind, once canceled, those IPs will be no longer available to you. To avoid any downtime, we highly advise you to update the IPs for your custom name servers with the basic available name servers before requesting the cancellation. You can see them at the right-hand side of your Dashboard page. IP addresses must be updated with the glue records at your domain registrar as well as with the "A" records for your custom name servers in your DNS zone.
