Gandi DNS Security+ Pack

The Gandi DNS Security+ Pack is a new service offered to allow you to further secure your most sensitive domains. Its goal is to :

  • to better control the administration of your domain by securing the edition of technical and administrative parameters.

  • improve response times for your domain and,

  • anticipate the risks of DDOS and DNS hijacking.

It is composed of the following elements:

  • Improved DNS resolution and better redundancy

  • An additional layer of protection on all sensitive modifications made to domains protected by the DNS security+ pack option.

  • Unlimited DNS zone backup and restore capabilities, allowing archiving and versioning of different zones to revert to a previous configuration.

  • A certificate of ownership of your domain name.

Details

Protection of sensitive operations

To protect the following operations, we require a second authentication via a code sent by email, protecting against fraudulent access to the resource:

  • Unlocking the domain for transfer

  • Modification of name servers (DNS)

  • Web redirections

  • DNS records edition

(for example preventing the addition of fraudulent email services to your DNS and usurping your brand image)

  • Editing DNS templates

  • Editing contact templates.

  • Change of ownership

DNS redundancy and better resolution

We combine our high-performance Gandi Anycast DNS (Top ten worldwide) with a partner infrastructure providing enhanced security. So, in the event of a failure of the main DNS network, your DNS remains accessible.

DNS Backup

Unlimited backup of your DNS, both automatically and manually.

Domain ownership certificate

Allows you to obtain a certificate with the domain owner information. Useful for legal procedures and for extensions without whois

Warning

The Gandi Security+ DNS service works by redirecting traffic to your site via specific Name Servers. If you change the nameservers of your domain, the Gandi Security+ DNS service will be disabled.
