IP Address Changes for Host Monitoring and DNS Failover

We’ve been upgrading the servers Zoneedit uses for host monitoring and failover checks. As a result, the IP addresses for these servers have changed. Any customers that have firewall rules in place to allow tests through, please use the following IP addresses.

New Look! Same Rock Solid Reliability

You may have noticed Zoneedit is sporting a new look and feel.

You’ll see the tutorials getting updated the more frequently you check back. If you’re missing something, post on the forum and we’ll point you in the right direction.

Enjoy our new look and do let us know what you think. We like getting praise just like the next guy.
