View Full Version : Security: Secondary DNS plz read in!
February 21st, 2001, 05:56
They offer a secondary DNS for security (realibility) purpose.
"Service is offered free of charge to customers with five or fewer domains and less than 100 records overall."
I think that's great.
BUT I have no idea what they mean with "100 RECORDS".
Can anybody tell me, what that is?
Are they talking about subdomains?
(Or is it something that's about hits/traffic?)

Arno, sometimes it helps to read past the first page on the site. The question is answered in the FAQ.
How much does it cost?
secondary.com is free for the first 5 domains or 100 records. After that, the cost is $50.00 for every block of 100 Records, per year.
I know you are going to ask, "What is a record?"
This system currently supports the following RR types for primary zones:
A: IPv4 address
A6: IPv6 address (new)
AAAA: IPv6 address (old)
CERT: DNSSEC Certificate
CNAME: Name Alias (canonical name)
DNAME: Domain Alias
HINFO: Host Information
KEY: DNSSEC Key
NAPTR: Name Pointer
NS: Name Server
PTR: Name Pointer
RP: Responsible Person
SRV: Service Location
In short, yes- could have to do with subdomains (or any other record you put in a zone), and no- nothing to do with hits/traffic.

Thanks a lot.
Actually I searched the web-site for information about "record".
But couldn't find something that helped me.
"What Resource Records (RRs) can I add to my domain?
Secondary.com does not restrict the Resource Record types you may use in your domain information. All valid RRs are supported."
And in the Glossar I couldn't find it.
Thanks for telling me what a record is!!!
