DNS & Health Checks uitgelegd

Intelligent DNS

DNS & Health Checks is an API-driven and intelligent DNS service which directs traffic based on health checks. By monitoring PCextreme cloud servers (or servers outside our network) traffic can be sent or not based on their availability.


Every domain name has its own DNS zone, a collection of all DNS records of the domain name and references to any zones of its sub domains.


Every domain name or sub domain has its own DNS records, which specify what IPv4 or IPv6 address is associated with the domain name. And of course, Aurora DNS supports all widely used record types (A, A, AAAA, CNAME, TXT, MX, SRV, NS, SOA).

Health Checks

Our DNS service can automatically monitor the health of your servers with HTTP, HTTPS or TCP health checks. When a server is classified as 'unhealthy', Aurora DNS will automatically route traffic to any of your 'healthy' servers.
