Domain Name Service (DNS)

Use domain names instead of IP addresses

Domain Name Services (DNS) assign IP addresses to meaningful domain names (such as These plain-text names are much easier to remember than 12-digit numbers. Thanks to DNS resolution, users can access network applications by entering the domain name. As such, the DNS also simplifies work in public clouds. It enables users to integrate cloud resources in their own company networks with ease – they then see the services as part of their internal network. Moreover, using domain names instead of IP addresses also facilitates administrative tasks and makes clouds more user-friendly. This function can also be used in virtual private clouds.

Domain Name Service in the Open Telekom Cloud

The Open Telekom Cloud also offers a Domain Name Service (DNS). DNS is available via the Open Telekom Cloud console and features anti-DDoS protection. In addition to references to external IP addresses, the solution can also be used for services within the Open Telekom Cloud. Pricing of the Domain Name Service is based on scaled prices depending on the number of domains stored. If a domain is created and remains configured for more than 24 hours, it is billed once for the entire month. A usage-based payment is then added to this (domain requests).
