13.10.2015 – New tool – Mail Server Test
Mail Server Test is our brand new tool, created to help domain owners, network administrators, and administrators of mail servers by checking their mail server and DNS configurations. This tool works with a set of rules based on RFC standards and industry best practices for achieving high email delivery rates, avoiding blacklists, and avoiding having your messages marked as spam.
The Mail Server Testing tool is relevant to you even if you do not have your own mail server and your emails are being sent via a third party service such as Mandrill, Mailgun, or SendGrid, because you still need to configure your DNS records properly. And you might also be interested to check if your outgoing email service is well configured.
Enjoy the new tool and make your online life easier and happier with Online Domain Tools!
19.09.2015 – DNS Zone Checker
We are releasing DNS Zone Health Checker, a new tool designed to thoroughly analyze the status of your DNS setup. There are over 200 rules that this tool uses to find out whether your DNS zone and your name servers are properly configured, consistent, reachable, etc. in order to provide the most efficient and reliable host resolving service to your visitors.
It is quite common that DNS setups are not perfect, which may cause various delays in domain to IP address translations and thus worsen your visitors' experience. More serious errors can also lead to situations in which the end client is completely unable to reach your servers. Our DNS checker can be used to prevent such situations and also to help diagnose and fix problems with your DNS.
The tool supports advanced features such as DNSSEC, IPv6 resolution checking, and IDN domains, which makes it quite rare among similar DNS health testing tools. We hope you will enjoy our new tool, designed as always to make your online life happier and easier!

17.07.2015 – TLS & SSL Checker
We are happy to publish TLS & SSL Checker – a new tool in our arsenal. This tool analyzes TLS/SSL services and provides detailed reports on the status of their security and configuration, including information on certificates and whether the target services are vulnerable to any of the known TLS/SSL related bugs, such as Heartbleed, POODLE, BEAST, CRIME, FREAK etc. It also provides details about used cipher suites and warns you in case any weak or insecure ciphers are available on your server.
The tool supports scanning different ports and does even support STARTTLS for known protocols such as POP3 or SMTP.
TLS & SSL Checker is a must have tool for any administrator that deploys or manages services protected by TLS/SSL protocols. We hope it will help you make your servers more secure and thus make your online life happier and easier!
