DNS monitoring, like a coin, has two sides: “What does my DNS server say?” and “What does ‘public’ DNS say?” With NodePing server monitoring, you can ask both questions.
Our DNS check allows you to send a query of a specific type to your DNS server (or a public DNS server) and test the response against a string you define. For example, you can verify that your website domain resolves to your web server’s static IP address and have NodePing send you an email or SMS alert when either the server or the response fails.
DNS queries can be made for the following types and the response verified:
You can find more info on the DNS checks and our other check types in our documentation.
