OX PowerDNS Recursor Platform

The OX PowerDNS Recursor platform is a high-end, high-performance resolving name server, which powers the DNS resolution of at least a hundred million subscribers.

DNS answers can be fully scripted using a variety of (scripting) languages like for example Lua, Java, Perl, Python, Ruby, C and C++. Such scripting can be used for dynamic redirection, (spam)filtering or real time intervention.

Utilizing multiple processors and supporting those powerful scripting abilities, the Recursor delivers top performance while retaining the flexibility modern DNS deployments require.

The platform comes with the DNSDist loadbalancer. The DNSdist loadbalancer is a highly DNS-, DoS- and abuse-aware loadbalancer. Its goal is to route traffic to the best available DNS recursor, delivering top performance to legitimate users while shunting or blocking abusive traffic. It is fully scriptable in the Lua language. DNSdist allows for a OX PowerDNS platform architecture that is highly redundant.

Recursor Platform Module: Parental Control (module)

The Content filtering and parental control module offers unique Multi-Level Control for Safe Browsing per user. It has an easy to use Web Control Panel.

It supports many categories, time-windows, white lists and black lists. With CPE assistance it allows per-device parental control.

Recursor Platform Module: Malware detection and Filtering (module)

OX PowerDNS Malware detection and filtering module allows filtering of DNS based on threat lists. It provides a platform for detecting and preventing subscriber infection.

Authoritative Server

The OX PowerDNS Authoritative Server is the only DNS Authoritative solution that enables authoritative DNS service from all major databases, including but not limited to MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite3, Oracle and plain text files.

DNS answers can also be fully scripted using a variety of (scripting) languages like for example Lua, Java, Perl, Python, Ruby, C and C++. Such scripting can be used for dynamic redirection, (spam)filtering or real time intervention.

OX PowerDNS Authoritative Server is the leading DNSSEC implementation, hosting the majority of all DNSSEC domains worldwide.

OX PowerDNS Reporting

The OX PowerDNS platform knows various types of reporting. It provides both reporting about the functioning of the DNS platform itself (both through real-time dashboards and live displays, as well as through periodically generated reports on average performance for a management overview) and about the malware protection and other dynamic platform capabilities like the parental control functionality.

OX PowerDNS Platform Automated Denial of Service Protection

DNS is a cornerstone of any internet service, be it hosting domains or being an access provider. A successful denial of service attack on a DNS server platform leads to an immediate slowdown or even break down of user experience.

The OX PowerDNS Platform contains functionality that will flag malicious traffic every second and instigates automatic blocks on either the source or the subject (domain) of the question. Key benefits of such automated blocking are:

  • Improved performance when under light attack
  • Ability to sustain good service when under heavier attacks
  • More rapid return to providing service when filtering largest scale attacks
