Gcore DNS overview

As a DNS provider, we offer customers two products: Managed DNS and Public DNS. Learn how DNS works in our blog post “on DNS.”

Managed DNS

Gcore Managed DNS is an authoritative DNS server for domain delegation. When delegating domains and creating a DNS zone, the following features are available:

DNS record management is available in two modes: non-advanced and advanced. Use non-advanced mode if you need to add a single DNS record without additional balancing settings. Use advanced mode if you want to add RRsets or set additional settings, such as balancing and Health Checks.

Public DNS

Gcore Public DNS provides free public DNS resolvers for converting names into IP addresses. You can use Gcore Public DNS instead of the resolvers provided by your internet provider to increase resolution speed and protect your domain from substitution.
