DNS hosting

This document is current until 1 January 2018

To make your services available over the internet they will need DNS records to let people know where they are. service.gov.uk domains are delegated to nameservers controlled by service teams.

Principles

  • DNS entry configuration should come from a version-controlled repository unless autogenerated
  • Consider nameserver availability as part of your overall service availability
