I think at this price is definitely worth a look, going to add it to my next domains I order.

Thanks for the update Neil, now please hurry up and open 2G orders up again!

Hi

Just to let you know you can order it for current domain names in the 'WEB' Manager now, see https://www.ovh.com/manager/web/index.html

Hi

That is right, they use the same DNS Zone so the API Calls would be the same.

There is an API here https://api.ovh.com/console/#/domains and used/for OVH WEB Control Panel here, https://www.ovh.com/manager/web/login.html which is why there are limited functions.
Yes but what I mean is that the Domain and Anyacst DNS API calls are the same?

Do we attach this service to a domain that we have registered to OVH?

Are the zone tools used to edit the records the same tool, or separate?

Are there no API calls for this service because I can't find any?

Thanks,

Neat. Can you add your own zones and all that good stuff?

When is it going to be available for UK users?

Can this be used with domains bought outside of OVH?

Hello,

In order for your domain names to function, you must configure the DNS. The first requests on a website are done initially on the DNS server before locating the server that hosts the website.

We are now offering Anycast DNS. It's basically a DNS service hosted in 20 PoPs around the world. The big advantage of our service is that your domain name's first DNS requests are made as close to the visitor as possible. Thanks to the geolocation of DNS servers, latency is considerably reduced, especially when your visitors come from all over.

In addition to low latency, the service also offers redundancy of 2000%, as rather than having 2 DNS servers with 2 IPs, the Anycast DNS is assured by 40 DNS servers spread across the world. If one server breaks down, DNS requests automatically pass onto another.
The cost of the service is 0.99/yr (!!)

Kind regards,

Octave
