Ultimate DNS reliability through comprehensive error tracking
ISPs can now enjoy ultimate reliability and ease of use during the DNS
administration process, whether in getting a health check on their DNS
setup or responding to immediate network problems. DNS Expert can
systematically error-check and validate any part of the DNS setup. DNS
Expert also provides an easy path to quick DNS problem identification by
locating problems and providing easy-to-understand solutions to even the
most complex DNS problems.
"I have used DNS Expert to analyze all of the zones which we host," says
Jim Evans at InterNet Access Network, an Ohio Dayton Area ISP. "DNS Expert
has very quickly and efficiently given me the information I need to clean
up my zone files. I am very impressed and I feel that anyone that must deal
with DNS should have a copy of this utility ."
The analysis performed by DNS Expert includes checking the availability of
backup mail- and DNS service for domains, the general domain sanity, and
the connection to parent domains. Says Sigurdur Ragnarsson, DNS Expert
product manager: "DNS Expert performs over 50 different checks, practically
all the tests that can be made to a DNS server. These tests surpass any
tests done on DNS servers today."
Essential diagnostic companion for both new and experienced administrators
Manual DNS error tracking and validation of DNS records is often very time
consuming, even for the most experienced administrator. Errors in DNS
records are easily overlooked and checks can be left out in the course of
the validation process. A survey recently conducted on approximately 1200
Internet domains revealed that over 60% had erroneous setup. With DNS
Expert, new and experienced administrators are provided with the means of
easily and systematically checking every aspect of DNS, ensuring a correct
setup while minimizing the administration effort.
