Now Available – DNS Monitors

Our monitors now support checks of DNS infrastructure!

This lets you verify the underlying routing to critical endpoints.

To create this monitor, go to Monitors > New and choose “DNS” for the “Type”.

You can customize the following options:

  • Host/IP: The nameserver to use (if set). If blank, a local lookup will be performed.
  • Query: The record to lookup at the nameserver (e.g.
  • Port: The port to use (default = 53).
  • Record Type: The type of record to lookup (A, CNAME, MX, NS, PTR, SOA, TXT).
  • Expect Data: The result that is expected from the record to lookup (e.g. 12.34.567.890).

If you have questions, please let us know.
