Atomia DNS goes open source and is now free to use

Posted in Atomia Products, DNS, News, Releases on February 20th, 2012. By

As of today, you will be able to install and use Atomia DNS for free. And what’s even better, you can contribute to the development of the product, which is released under the ISC license.

Atomia DNS is a DNS management software with DNSSEC support out of the box. It comes packed with a simple to use, yet, powerful API and can easily be integrated with any system. For the occasion we have built a simple web application (in node.js) for those who prefer a GUI to manage their zones. Of course, we provide a command line client as well.

Atomia DNS was earlier exclusive to Atomia Cloud Hosting Platform and has gained publicity thanks to its robustness and effectiveness during the roll-out of DNSSEC for the Swedish TLD (.se).
