Happy New Year! We want to kick off 2021 by announcing some improvements to DNS Check.

Back in 2016, we added support for monitoring wildcard DNS records. Wildcard DNS records are used to serve requests for otherwise non-existent domain names. Today we’re pleased to announce that we’ve extended our support for using wildcards in DNS records monitoring. DNS Check now allows you to specify a wildcard (*) in place of some DNS record values, such as an A record’s IP address to indicate that any value is acceptable, but the record must exist.

We just finished refactoring the code that we use for integrating DNS Check with services like Slack and PagerDuty. It felt good to take some of the bespoke code that had accumulated over the past couple years as integrations got added in and generalize it.

DNS Check enables you to easily monitor, share and troubleshoot DNS records. Import your entire zone file, and get notified if a record changes.

At the heart of DNS Check is a DNS record checking tool, which compares the DNS records that you enter to what DNS servers are returning in response to queries. If there's an issue, the record checking tool will enable you to quickly identify it.

DNS Checks Made Easy:

  • Monitor: Monitor DNS records and name servers for changes and lookup failures. Get notified if something changes. Import your entire zone file or just those records that you want to be monitored.
  • Share: Request DNS record updates by sharing a link that shows which records are posted correctly, and which aren't. Get notified as updates are detected.
  • Troubleshoot: Quickly troubleshoot and resolve DNS issues. If something's broken, our DNS checker allows you to identify whether it's there's a DNS issue involved and if so, what to fix.
