DeEnesse DNS Server Suite for Windows
DNS Servers are the guidance systems of the internet. Without
them, you would be entering IP# for every 'net destination,
and not domain names. Until now DNS servers have been among
the most complicated services to run on a server. DeEnesse
( pronounced DNS ) brings traditional Windows ease of use
to the management of a DNS server, plus so much more... New
DNS Administrators will find DeEnesse a breeze to learn. Experienced
DNS Administrators will wonder why something like this has
taken so long to appear. One way or the other, we are sure
you will be impressed with DeEnesse.
There are several choices for DNS servers out there, including
BIND, Windows NT DNS, and several commercial flavors. All
of them have two things in common:
- They are cryptic and difficult to use
- They are nothing more than DNS servers.
DeEnesse is not a DNS server. It is an integrated suite of
tools designed for the simple management of a DNS server and
tasks that relate to DNS. DeEnesse uses the Windows NT port
of the BIND DNS Server, and masks out all of the near-impossible-to-comprehend
No other product is designed in such a way that an administrator
doesn't need to have a solid understanding of DNS in order
to run their own server(s). We have created an interface that
allows you to jump right in and get a server up and running
in no time flat through the use of our intelligent wizards.
No other product organizes your DNS server's data in such
a way that it allows you quickly and easily manage domains
through easy to understand dialogs and wizards.... while doing
comprehensive error checking to make sure you create valid
No other product is packed with DNS related tools and utilities
so that you can perform so many tasks without switching between
applications, command prompts and configuration files.
No other product (except our own Nic O'Matic) has an interface
that allows you to quickly and easily create and manage domain
registrations with the Internic.
No other product allows you to setup default settings for
just about everything so that you don't have to waste time
entering redundant data over and over.
No other product was designed to save you tons of time through
easy navigation, setup wizards, and an almost non-existent
Besides all of the unique features in functionality and ease
of use, DeEnesse is priced at a fraction of commercial DNS
TUCOWS Head of the Herd:
DNS servers all over the Web are accessed millions of
times each day. A DNS server links domain names such
as "tucows.com" to an IP address, making it
easier so that you do not have to type in long numbers.
Until now, it has always been a timely, and often long,
drawn out task to set up your own DNS server. Cyberspace
HQ has developed a program that makes it easier for
beginners and advanced users alike to set up their own
DNS server quickly and easily. This is why TUCOWS has
branded Cyberspace HQ's DeEnesse with the Head of the
Herd for the week of January 17, 1999.
It's not too often that you will find a DNS server that
offers an "easy" setup process, and this is
the main reason that the TUCOWS review staff was so
impressed with the functionality and simplicity of DeEnesse.
Among the normal features that are included with a DNS
server, DeEnesse did not leave a single option to be
desired. Included with the package is a built in PING
tool, a traceroute utility, nameserver lookup, WHOIS,
Domain Name Registration, and a finger tool, all of
which employ a GUI (graphical User Interface). No more
working from a command prompt and trying to figure out
how to setup all of your options, because DeEnesse also
includes a handful of wizards that walk you through
nearly every setup process in order to get your own
DNS server up and running. DeEnesse also includes a
useful error checker that corrects errors when you make
