Dear DNS Coach,
@DNSMadeEasy here’s my question. what is the difference in resolution time with cname vs aname vs Arecord?

As we discussed earlier, there is no difference between A records and ANAME records because it only takes one lookup to resolve either. However, a CNAME record can take longer as it takes multiple look up attempts in order to resolve.
If you’re looking for the fastest DNS resolution speeds, consider using DNS Made Easy–the industry leader in reliability, 13-year history of uptime, and the top tier of fastest IP Anycast + resolution speeds.
