About DNSimple

DNSimple provides a comprehensive API and web interface for domain management automation to customers around the world. Our vision is one where anyone, regardless of skill level, can register domains and connect them to the services they love without thinking about DNS.

With DNSimple you can register, transfer, and renew domains across a variety of top-level domains, from the most common such as .com, to a wide variety of country-code TLDs such as .io, .cc, and many others, to new TLDs such as .link, .coffee, and more.

Once you've registered your domain you can then manage all of your DNS zones either through our beautiful user interface or through our fully-featured API. One-click services make it easy to connect your domain to a wide variety of hosting services like Heroku, Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.

Secure your domains with SSL certificates from Comodo or Let's Encrypt, automate the installation of certificates through our web services, and keep your domains operating safely and securely.

Finally, if you ever run into issues you can always contact our knowledgeable team via email. You will receive a rapid response from one of our knowledgeable technical team members, helping ensure you get the best service possible from DNSimple.
