We are in the final phases of testing new features for D-Zone Anycast DNS including, (1) enhanced reporting, (2) zone status alerts, and (3) an automated method to add zones to D-Zone Anycast clouds. The latter feature will be of particular interest to organizations managing hundreds, or thousands of zones. Once released users will see:

Enhanced aggregate reporting

Will allow you to view new statistics regarding your zones such as Query Type, IPv4/IPv6 query distribution and TCP/UDP query distribution.

Zone Status alerts

Users will have the ability to opt into receiving email alerts when zone statuses change from in sync to either out of sync or transfer failing. This will reduce the time it takes to know and respond to critical zone transfer issues.

Notify Listener  

An exciting new way for organizations to add their zones to D-Zone without implementing our API or using our web portal. The Notify Listener will allow customers to configure their DNS server to send an additional notify to a specified IP address and port which will then trigger the automated provisioning of the zone to their account. This feature will allow users of other third party DNS services who cannot (or prefer to not) implement the D-Zone API to provision new zones in an automated manner.
