Domain Name Service

Domain Name Service (DNS) provides highly available and scalable authoritative DNS resolution services along with domain name management. It translates domain names into IP addresses required for network connection to route visitors to desired resources.

This free service is enabled by default for all HUAWEI CLOUD users.

Product Advantages
  • Private DNS for VPCs

    Provides secure private DNS. You can have your own authoritative DNS servers in VPCs to improve resolution efficiency, lower network latency, and prevent DNS spoofing.

  • High Performance

    Offers a new generation of efficient and stable resolution services, enabling tens of millions of concurrent queries on a single node.

  • Reverse Resolution

    Maps IP addresses to domain names, ensuring credibility of emails sent from your email servers.

  • Security Protection

    Defends services against various DDoS attacks with Huawei's powerful anti-DDoS devices and extensive experience in security protections.

Application Scenarios
  • General DNS Resolution

  • Service Management

Application Deployment

Application Deployment

Map ECS IP addresses to private domain names in specified VPCs, allowing these ECSs to communicate with each other using domain names.


No Code Modification

If an ECS becomes faulty, you only need to change its IP address in the DNS records, instead of modifying existing configurations.

Free from DNS Spoofing

Private domain names are not exposed to the Internet so you do not need to worry about DNS spoofing and attacks.

High Performance

A private DNS server directly responds to requests for private domain names, greatly reducing network latency.
