Technitium DNS Server v12 Released!

I am happy to announce the release of Technitium DNS Server v12, a cross-platform, free, open source software that can be used by anyone, be it a novice or an expert user. It features an easy to use web based GUI and works with default config that allows the server to run out-of-the-box.

This is a major release that now runs on ASP.NET Core 8 Runtime and adds many new features and options. This release also adds two new DNS apps. The DNS Rebinding Protection app protects your networks from DNS rebinding attacks. The NX Domain Override app allows you to override NX domain response with custom A/AAAA answer response.

The release also adds Newly Registered Domains Community Feed by Shreshta. You can read more on Newly Registered Domains to understand how it protects you better.

  1. I'm eager to try v12 on my Windows x64 system but first need to install the required .NET 8 files. I believe I've found the right page for that purpose ( but am unclear about what installer(s) to download -- ".NET Runtime 8.0.1" or ".NET Desktop Runtime 8.0.1"? "ASP.NET Core Runtime 8.0.1", too, and if so the "Hosting Bundle"?

    (Once I've done this, it would be great to figure out how to determine whether any other software in my PC is still using .NET 7.0.x and, if there's nothing, uninstall that version. Space is at a premium on my C: drive.)


    1. Thanks for asking. You don't have to worry about that. Just download the Windows Setup for Technitium DNS Server and the setup will automatically install the required .NET runtime for you.

  2. It is the best dhcp/dns [IPAM] software that I have ever used. I would like to ask if it is possible to add dhcp scope by csv file so I can do multiple scopes at the same time or can I edit it directly to the file? And also reserving MAC address is the same.

    1. Thanks for the compliments. There is no option to do bulk import. But you can use the HTTP API with any scripting language to insert bulk entries.
