Dublin, Ireland (Vocus) September 16, 2009
Today Afilias, a leading provider of Internet infrastructure services, announced the availability of SiteCertain TM, a new add-on feature to its Managed DNS Services. SiteCertain enables Afilias Managed DNS customers to add web server monitoring, content monitoring and IP address fail-over to their Managed DNS account, to ensure the reliability and uptime of their Web sites.
“Customers using the Afilias DNS network already have 100% reliability guaranteed for managing their DNS. Now with SiteCertain, customers can add the peace of mind of knowing they will always have an emergency failover plan to handle a variety of scenarios, such as web server failures or problems with properly loading content, that would preclude customers from reaching their website,” said John Kane, Vice President of Corporate Services for Afilias.
SiteCertain monitors customer Web servers continuously from over 40 locations worldwide. It dynamically updates DNS records from up to nine additional back-up IP addresses so that domain names can always point to a functional server. SiteCertain also checks for user specified page content, so not only are customers certain that their pages are loading, but that they are appearing exactly as they should, without errors.
Customers can manage their SiteCertain settings through the Afilias Managed DNS Web interface, including specifying IP fail-over addresses, monitoring intervals, verification of Web page content, and email or SMS notification/alerts. A variety of price plans are available for Afilias Managed DNS customers to add SiteCertain to their existing DNS account.
