Why you should monitor your DNS records

A DNS record translates your domain name to the IP address of your webhost

Your DNS records are the crucial behind-the-scenes component nobody notices, until it's broken. It is what translates your domain name (what we humans understand) to an IP address (what computers understand).

As long as that translation works, everyone's happy. But if it's broken, it is crucial to know about it quickly and take action.

Oh Dear will detect your DNS records for your domain and keep you informed on both changes and failures being detected.

Decide which DNS records matter to you

Enable or disable each kind of record

We can monitor any DNS record on your site, but you may only care about a few of those. Not a problem!

You can toggle each kind of DNS record you want to receive notifications about in the settings, per website.

If you're behind a DDoS protection service that often changes IP addresses for you, you can disable A or AAAA record monitoring. You'll still get valuable notifications for changes related to your MX or TXT records.
