Depending on your needs, Artica offers you several DNS tools.
Each feature promises advantages and disadvantages.
You will have to choose between performance and DNS cache and security.
The perfect DNS router/proxy/Firewall
It is a DNS forwarding server with extensive filtering capabilities.
It allows administrator to filter access to domain names by categories, easily block access to user specified domains and provides different access policies for different source IP addresses in your network using ACLs method
The local DNS cache service is only used by local services (Proxy, system, mail...).
It is installed by default starting Service pack 957 or Artica v4.40
Unlike other DNS services, it is not intended to serve resolutions to networks outside the server.
It allows to accelerate the caching of the records and automatically ensures the resolutions via the DoH method
The DNS cache service is a default service installed when you deploy an Artica appliance (only on v4.30x ).
It provides two main features:
You can consider it as an effective DNS Security service for your internal network.
This service is intended to be the public or private name server for your domains.
It uses a MySQL database to store DNS records and allows you to build all recognized DNS formats such as CAA, DNSSEC, etc.
It has very few DNS routing features. It has a simple recursion service.
You can consider it as an effective alternative to Microsoft's DNS service.
