Domains and DNS

The Domain Name System is the first step in your customers reaching your servers. Small DNS problems can manifest themselves as sporadically slow page loads, so Bytemark’s conservative infrastructure keeps responses fast and consistent.

Distributed: Our three DNS servers are spread throughout our network and have served our customers’ records for more than 10 years.

Simple: If you use our Symbiosis hosting system, DNS setup is completely automatic — just create the domains on your server and they’ll resolve within minutes.

Full control: For those who need more control we use tinydns-data records which you rsync directly to our servers. So any record type is supported. Full instructions.

No limits: You can upload any number of records, for any number of domains, and we don’t measure traffic either.

Domain registration

We’re redeveloping our domain service. Whilst we do this you can register or transfer a domain by contacting us at or +44 (0)1904 890890.

Bytemark Cloud used to be called "BigV"—nothing has changed except the name! We’re hiring! Please visit to find out more.
