FAQ

How many domains/zones can I add?

All accounts that are created will have access to add 10 domains by default. If more are required, please email NOC@NOVA53.NET


Can I send DNSUPDATES to my zone?

Yes! We support both IPv4 and IPv6 Dynamic DNS updates, from services such as www.nsupdate.info. Once you add the domain on this platform, you must email NOC@NOVA53.NET to enable it for your zone. You must also provide a "secret", along with the hash algorithm used, for it to be enabled within your zone. 


Do you accept AXFR?

We sure do! Go to "New Domain" and select the Slave zone option. Once selected, enter the zone name and the master IP (either IPv4 or IPv6) and allow the IPs listed to AXFR from your master. Currently if your Master IP/s change, then you must delete the zone and recreate it with the new master IP. Since this is a slave zone, no data will be lost since we'll be pulling a fresh copy from the master!


Malicious/Unlawful purposes?

All zones serviced by this service are subject to removal based upon malicious activities aimed towards the servers  and other networks. Your zones are subject to deletion with or without notification from the admins, relating to such malicious attacks, or unlawful use.


Do you support DNSSEC?

DNSSEC is provided by the service as well. If you want your zone signed - please send an email to NOC@NOVA53.NET requesting the algorithm and how many KSK/ZSK keys you require. You will be provided with the 4 types of DS records to send to your registrar.


Has failure of a upstream provider been tested?

The answer is yes! If one of our peering partners were to have a full outage, the remaining peers will continue to service your requests without missing a beat. 


Where are the POPs?

Currently there are 2 VPS providers, Vultr and DevCapsule. We chose the sites within these providers not only for redundancy, but also for their access to Internet Exchanges. We have several other VPS providers we're going to deploy with, along with our own physical colocation within datacenters that have access to IX. Please stay tuned while we continue expanding!
