Features and Benefits of Private DNS Hosting:

Eliminate Deployment Delays in DevOps

DevOps teams are delivering code more than 40 times faster than traditional application development, so they need DNS that can keep up with their velocity. With outdated DNS, DNS changes can take hours - or even days - to propagate. Only NS1’s next-generation Private DNS automatically propagates DNS changes in seconds to eliminate the risk of broken applications and user experiences. NS1’s API-first architecture also empowers DevOps teams to automatically integrate DNS changes into their deployment processes, dramatically improving speed and mitigating downtime. Built-in integrations with the most widely used infrastructure-as-code tools used by DevOps teams, such as Terraform and Ansible, ensure reliable, secure deployment changes without the delays and “friction” of traditional processes
