(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) - DNS Made Easy (dnsmadeasy.com), the leading provider of enterprise IP Anycast managed DNS, has unveiled a CPanel plugin, a tool that will help their clients administer the world’s most reliable DNS services while managing their webhosting and email services. This is yet another feature that DNS Made Easy offers now, along with numerous ones they have rolled out – like the mobile app – in recent months. DNS Made Easy plans to release additional features in the coming months as well.
A special CPanel plugin functions like an app that is installed in CPanel. Once installed, it provides the user extended functionality for enhancing their DNS. The functionality is better because their DNS will be hosted by DNS Made Easy instead of their own CPanel server, which is the default behavior for a CPanel installation. This allows the users to take advantage of the power of the DNS Made Easy IP Anycast+ network with the simplicity of configuring all of their options within CPanel.
The CPanel plugin for DNS Made Easy allows users to install DNS Made Easy functionality directly within their CPanel account. This enables clients to directly administer DNS Made Easy primary or secondary DNS services through CPanel via DNS Made Easy’s powerful REST API rather than having to access DNS Made Easy’s web control panel. The DNS Made Easy CPanel plugin provides limited DNS Made Easy functionality such as adding, modifying, and deleting domains. It will also allow users to add, modify, and create individual records.
Company engineers noted that the access to advanced features such as DNS Failover, Global Traffic Director, and Vanity DNS can only be configured through the DNS Made Easy web control panel.
For secondary DNS, the user can create domains and delete domains. In addition, secondary DNS users can create, delete, and modify secondary IP sets. Secondary IP sets are the list of primary name servers that will be used to retrieve the required zone / domain information.
How do users install the plugin? Installation of the plugin is quick, easy, and painless. It only requires running an install script on the CPanel server. Once installed, the plugin is available through any CPanel account on the server. Furthermore, clients who use primary DNS services on their own server can use the “one click set up” secondary DNS domain in the plugin which automatically configures zone transfers to DNS Made Easy secondary name servers.
Steve Job, President of DNS Made Easy, said, “This plugin is a great way to carry out domain management through one interface while still using an external DNS provider like DNS Made Easy who provides 100% uptime on an IP Anycast+ globally distributed network.”
