About Constellix

DNS is no longer a simple point-and-click domain management service. It has evolved into a critical optimization tool for network administrators and DevOps alike. ‍ At Constellix, we augment our managed DNS services with built-in network monitoring, health checks, performance monitoring, and query analytics. We ingest data from these sources and use it to optimize how traffic flows to your cloud services, data centers, and CDN services.

We provide enterprise DNS management and failover, load balancing, and GeoDNS. Some of the DNS management tools are traffic steering, sonar monitoring, and real-time traffic anomaly detection.

Amazing service, proven itself already!

Coming from their other product, DNSMadeEasy, This system is so much more intuitive and easy to use. It's a great, reliable product that really has been a life-saver on a couple of occasions with client projects.

Pros

It's Ease of Use and flexibility User Management Affordable pricing

Cons

Nothing really, I haven't found anything I don't like.

DNS made even easier

I needed an advanced DNS solution for a new SAAS product offering. DNS Made Easy is fine, but Constellix takes that platform to a higher level. I wasn't sure it would be right for me since my needs are less complex than many, but I was pleasantly surprised that this product scales from zero to hundreds or even thousands of domains. The transaction-based DNS editor is a lifesaver in case I mess up a change, and being able to stage all the changes and commit them all at once keeps everything tidy and prevents inconsistent DNS records. The Sonar site monitoring came in handy for a recent outage at a local Tier 1 provider and I took the opportunity to set up failover DNS, which was straightforward and worked as promised. 10/10 and highly recommended.

Pros

Extremely powerful, extremely fast, and extremely reliable DNS provider that scales from one domain to hundreds, including custom failover/monitoring, helpful interface, reasonable pricing determined based on actual usage, and (critical) a transaction-based DNS editor with staging of changes plus commit and rollback.

Cons

At times, a steep learning curve and a somewhat over-simplified interface that belies the complexity under the hood. Documentation is not always linked from each screen, requiring a separate search of the company's documentation.

Reasons for Choosing Constellix

More advanced features and pricing based on actual usage.

Reasons for Switching to Constellix

I needed an enterprise-grade solution for a new SAAS product offering and this was not met by my previous provider.

Great solution for DNS hosting -- easy to use, fast

We need to host between 50 to 100 domain DNS records. It was easy to get started and update records as they change. We've "dabbled" in geo-hosting (one of the features of Constellix) but currently don't need it for any clients we have.

Pros

We switched from inhouse and another third-party ot Constellix for our DNS hosting. With Constellix we never have to worry about our DNS hosting going down. We don't use all the fancier features, but we've never run into an issue where Constellix couldn't do what we wanted. The pricing is very attractive also.

Cons

Nothing really. There are a quirk or two on the configuration screens that you just have to learn. The documentation is good, but "who reads documentation". There is s slight inconsistency with Office 365 terminology and Constellix.

Handles DNS

Pros

Constellix does what we need. It offers multiple account managers with multi-factor options.

Cons

The login screen for 2FA is not intuitive. When you first log in, it takes 3 clicks to get into your last-used domain.

Reasons for Choosing Constellix

The pricepoint was better.

Fast and reliable DNS with great analytics

Speed, uptime, DNS analytics, and monitoring system are the stand outs for me.
