Benefits of Premium DNS
The servers of the Premium DNS plans belong to data centers that are directly connected to the largest traffic exchange points of Europe, achieving the highest possible site speed.
The servers of the Premium DNS plans use SSL certificates with 128 bits encryption.
Premium DNS comes with a 99.9% DNS record availability guarantee, to ensure the uninterrupted operation of your domain name.
With the Premium DNS plan you can manage and/or add all the necessary records for a service that you wish to activate for your domain name.
Every time the DNS records are updated, automatic error checks take place and you are immediately notified for errors encountered during the update.
The supported DNS records that you can manage through the panel of the panel of the Premium DNS hosting are: NS, Α, AAAA, CNAME, MX, PTR, TXT, SRV.
A domain name is online only if its DNS services work properly. If these services fail or are not properly set, the domain name will not be available.
Do I need to register my domain name with Top.Host, to be able to purchase the Premium DNS?
The Premium DNS service can be activated for domain names regardless of the registrar. You can purchase and use the service of Top.Host, even if you do not have your domain name registered with us.
Which extensions (TLDs) are supported by the Premium DNS?
There are no restrictions regarding the extension of the domain name that you have registered. The Premium DNS plan supports all possible TLDs.
How do I manage the services of Premium DNS?
Once the plan is activated, you will receive an email with the login information to your Premium DNS account. You can manage the services of your plan through the Plesk Platform.
Which is the activation period for Premium DNS?
The activation period depends on the payment method you choose. The login information is sent automatically if you pay by credit card or PayPal. In case of payment through bank deposit, the plan is activated once the payment is confirmed by our Accounting Department.
Which records are supported by the Premium DNS?
The supported records that you can manage through the panel of DNS hosting are:
NS - Informs about the nameservers of the hosting plan where a domain name is hosted.
Α - Assigns the domain name to a 32bit IPv4 IP address.
AAAA - Assigns the domain name to a 128bit IPv6 IP address.
CNAME - Determines if a domain name is an alias of another domain name. It is also used for creating subdomains.
MX - Identifies the mailserver used by a domain name.
PTR - Performs the inverse operation of the A and AAAA records, assigning the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses to domain names.
TXT - Its main use is to avoid sending emails that appear to be sent by the owner of the domain name, without this actually happening./li>
SRV - Identifies specific services provided by the domain name, such as FTP.
For how many domain names can the Premium DNS be activated?
Each PremiumDNS hosting plan can be activated for one domain name or subdomain.
How much time is required to update ISPs, for changes I make in the records of my Premium DNS?
To complete the propagation to all Internet Service Providers, a period of 0-48 hours is required.
In which cases should I use the Premium DNS hosting plan?
The Premium DNS hosting plan of Top.Host can be used in the following circumstances:
If you use any online service that does not provide DNS (e.g. a blog on blogger or a Google Apps account) and you want to connect it with your domain name.
For example, the services of Premium DNS enable your blog in Blogger to open with your own domain name, instead of opening with the subdomain provided by Blogger.
If you use a local server for hosting your site instead of a server of a hosting provider, the DNS plan will give you the opportunity to host the name you have registered on your own server.
