Paranoid about your DNS - Monitor, validate and verify your DNS configurations.

Simply log in to your DNS Spy dashboard and add your domains to monitor. We autodetect all your relevant DNS records. Each DNS record is automatically monitored for changes, and you'll be notified whenever they change. You can even enable AXFR zone transfers to get 100% DNS coverage.

Here's a quick rundown of the features of DNS Spy:

  • Monitors your domains for DNS changes
  • Alert you when a record has changed
  • Keep a detailed history of each DNS record change
  • Notify you of invalid or RFC-violating DNS configs
  • Rate your DNS configurations
  • Monitor 25 domains with the basic pack
  • Back-up all your DNS records
  • Verify all your nameservers are in sync
  • Support DNS zone transfer (AXFR)
  • 2 Factor Authentication

A subtle change in your DNS records can make or break your online business. DNS Spy will send a notification for every change, so you can sleep knowing your DNS is monitored correctly.

Why pay for a service if you have no idea if it’s even good? We get that. We feel the same. Heck, I wouldn’t pay for something without trying it.

A blog is usually a place where companies brag about their achievements, how awesome an organization is to work at, the cool new clients they launched, … Our plan is make this blog pretty much the same, but before we get there – we have to make an announcement first.

As of September 2017, every Certificate Authority is obligated to check the CAA DNS records for a domain it is about to issue a certificate to. This gives more control to the domain owner and can limit which Certificate Authorities are allowed to issue certificates.

I started to created a DNS monitoring & validation solution called DNS Spy and I'm happy to report: it has launched! It's been in private beta starting in 2016 and in public beta since March 2017. After almost 6 months of feedback, features and bugfixes, I think it's ready to kick the tires.
