SSH Key Authentication

Posted by Vitalie Cherpec

Last week we worked to simplify the setup required for git integration. Until now we supported only repositories hosted on GitHub and Bitbucket, authentication was done using special luadns users which was a legacy of options available in 2011 when we built this service.

We moved now to a more general solution based on SSH keys authentication, this allows you to use other hosts or self-hosted (Gitea/Gogs, etc) repositories.

If you are using git integration already, please migrate to SSH key authentication. You'll find your public key in the settings your public key which you can use to grant access to your git repository.

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

It's been more than a year since we introduced two-factor authentication, although this feature is optional we recommend to enable it on your account for an extra layer of security.

Anycast Network Updates

To improve response time and a better name servers distribution we launched 3 new POPs:

  • Seattle, USA
  • Singapore
  • Sydney, Australia

Currently we run 18 POPs located in USA, Europe, Africa, Asia & Australia.

We are still testing new locations and we plan to introduce soon new POPs in India, Brazil and South Africa.
