KYNGINs is built from hundreds of thousands of lines of source code, configuration documents, management scripts, and lots of regular maintenance and updates. Also to mention, millions of human hours of code built by the open source communities which without, none of this would be possible.

Within KYNGIN, we separate the software stack into separate 'facilities' for ease of management and security as defined below.


A district is a collection of resources owned by a single Company or Individual. When you are a KYNGIN client, and pay for one or more facilities within KYNGIN, you will be assigned a district identified by your Organization name.

Each district within KYNGIN has access to a number of facilities dependent upon permission assignment and resource allocation. As an example, let us assume a client owns a district called “Acme Widgets”, which has access to the E-mail Facility and DNS Facility.

Within this district, the District Owner will be able to manage domains and mailboxes in the E-mail facility, and zones and records within the DNS Facility. Additionally, each the District Owner can assign permissions to members specific to a single Domain or Zone in the affiliated facilities.


A KYNGIN facility incorporates all resources for a specific product within KYNGIN. Facilities allow for an additional layer of resource isolation, keeping systems performant and secure. They additionally allow for ease of use, as navigation across facilities very simple and predictable.

When navigating throughout the KYNGIN website, each facility is a self-contained web application (including multiple daemon processes, and a number of database servers) which is easily identified while browsing by a colored navigation header.
