Anycast Routing

We use Anycast routing to enhance our DNS infrastructure at global scale.

Anycast assigns the same IP to all geographically distributed servers, which allows the nearest server to instantly answer all requests.

GeoDNS Functionality

You can employ GeoDNS mechanism to achieve additional performance for your online services. This allows our DNS servers to give different DNS answers based on the client's geographical location — for example, to send users from Asia to an Asian server, and European users to a European one.

GeoDNS can be configured by geo coordinates, IP, ASN, country, or continent.

DDoS Protected

Using our Anycast network with hundreds of nodes globally makes our DNS service resistant to even the largest DDoS attacks.

DNS Failover

DNS failover helps your business services stay available even in case of a server outage. We use health checks between our global infrastructure and your servers to ensure they are available before giving them in DNS responses.

If one of your servers goes down, our failover system will automatically redirect your user requests to an available server, without affecting the performance or uptime of your service.
