Network > Private DNS > Overview

Private DNS allows you to configure independent DNS per VPC. You can make DNS service accessible to instances within a VPC by configuring the settings in the web console, without separate DNS solutions or servers.

Main Features

  • Configures a separate DNS per VPC.
  • You don't need a separate DNS solution or server to configure DNS services accessible to instances within a VPC.
  • Connects one or more VPCs to one zone (domain area).
  • If you request for a zone from outside, you will not receive a response.
  • Instances within a VPC can receive responses to requests for domains registered through external organizations (e.g., as well as zones connected to the VPC.
  • For VPCs using Private DNS, a private IP DNS (local domain) is provided.
  • You can access instances within a VPC via private IP DNS without any separate configuration.

[Note] Query usage generated for monitoring * Query usage generated by monitoring exists for Private DNS operations. This query usage is provided free of charge. * Query usage generated by monitoring is aggregated in the usage status.

Service Targets

  • When you need to set up a domain accessible only within a VPC
  • When you need a setup to link with NHN Cloud services
