Importing Zones Is Easy

Is your website living on another cloud host's server? The DNS Manager will easily import zones from your current provider as-is. You only have to update your name servers to ours.

Highly-Available Records

DNS records are served from Linode name servers all over the world. If one name server suffers an outage it will automatically failover to a redundant server. Because records are cached worldwide, DNS lookups are faster to return.
