DNS Search and Replace

We're happy to announce that we've upgraded our Advanced DNS Search feature to include the ability to do a global search and replace over the results. So, for example, if you need to update the same IP address in multiple domains, you can do it in one simple action. This feature is completely independent of our template system. At Nettica we provide the tools you need to manage your domains, in the way that best suits your needs.

New Feature : Search

We're pleased to annouce yet another tool for managing your domains. If you have a large number of domains, it can become a challenge to manage. Our new search features lets you filter your domains to find just the ones you want to manage. In addition, our new DNS search feature lets you search over your DNS records and make edits in the results. If you ever needed to figure out just which domains were still using the old IP address, DNS search will find those records simply by entering the IP address. Both features are real timesavers!

If you have any problems, questions, or suggestions, please contact support!
