for Domain Names

We can work with any domain names and/ or DNS provider, as long as we have the required access. We will of course guide you for any clarifications.

Configure DNS

If you have new records to add, need an external provider setting up, or want to move DNS from one provider to another, let Fixed.net handle this for you. Whether A, CNAME, MX, TXT or any other record type, we will add the record, ensuring that it has propagated to all of your nameservers and that it resolves from various locations. We've got a background in running DNS for hundreds of thousands of domain names.

How we do it

Audit DNS

Have us check over existing configuration and records, flagging any errors. We can also remove superfluous entries, and provide a report summarising your configuration.

Add Cloudflare

Cloudflare is an external DNS provider which can also help protect you from DDOS attacks and malicious users. We will move your DNS to your Cloudflare account and set your domain to route via there.

How to add Cloudflare

Create an SPF record

An SPF record improves email deliverability, informing mail recipients which mail servers, domains and IP addresses should be legitimately sending mail. We will configure this for you and add the DNS record.

What is an SPF record?

Transfer Domain between providers

Moving domains between providers can be fiddly. Let us handle the process for you and deal with any hurdles that arise. If you are missing information or encountering a problem, we'll outline the issue and help to resolve it.

Set up Google Apps

Configure MX records as well as CNAME records for Google Apps. If verification is required, we will walk you through the steps you need to take with Google.

Set up custom nameservers

Custom nameservers allow you to use ns1/ns2.yourdomain.com rather than your web host's nameservers. As long as your provider allows it, we will configure this with the registry so than you can use these vanity nameservers.
