DNS record management

Easily manage public DNS records. Create, read, update, enable/disable, or delete DNS zones and records effortlessly. Import and export zones for easy migration. Also supports managing Reverse DNS (PTR) records for IPv4 & IPv6 addresses.


Automate DNS configurations with the IONOS REST API, Terraform provider, and Go SDK. Gain flexibility, scalability, and precision in record management, ensuring seamless control over your DNS settings.

External DNS

Enable automatic DNS record updates for Kubernetes services. Keep DNS records in sync with dynamic infrastructure changes, reducing manual intervention. Guarantee consistent service availability for your applications with simplified DNS management.


Enhance DNS security by creating DNSSEC keys. These cryptographic keys act as digital signatures, ensuring data authenticity. Strengthen security and protect against DNS spoofing and cache poisoning for a more secure online experience.

Cost predictability

Unlike some providers, IONOS charges only for created zones, not DNS queries. Benefit from transparent pricing, avoiding surprises for better budget planning.

Geo Redundancy icon
Maximum availability

Trust in the reliability of global infrastructure distributed across 14 point-of-presence (POP) locations. With 20+ million globally managed zones, you’re ensured maximum availability via geo-based Anycast networking. Experience low latencies, regardless of your location.

Transparent prices

With Cloud DNS from IONOS, you only pay for the zones you manage and not per query. This allows you to calculate your costs and scale up easily.
