Features

Convenient and minimalistic DNS based redirects

No vendor lock-in

Don’t rely on provider specific implementations of non standard ALIAS records or CNAME flattening. Reuse our open specification based on the standards based TXT-record.

Hosted Service

Let us worry about the global and fault tolerant backend infrastructure while you control and manage your complete redirect data within your DNS records.
