Many of the IP Anycast DNS providers in the market today outsource their network partially or fully because they lack the technical knowledge and resources to manage a network of that magnitude all by themselves. At DNS Made Easy, this is what separates us from our competitors. We know that managing our full network from contract, to rack, to router, to switch, to name server is the only way we can fully manage and optimize it for speed, redundancy, and scalability. With 100% of network management being handled in-house, we ensure you receive the highest quality of service possible.
In 2001 DNS Made Easy first offered a web interface to manage DNS services. In the past 10 years, our networks have evolved to reflect the service, redundancy, and speed that our clients require from a world class enterprise DNS provider. In addition, network security and network attacks of a decade ago were smaller and less sophisticated than those seen today. At DNS Made Easy, we constantly research, upgrade, and redesign our network to exceed industry standards and insure we can defend against modern security threats.
Why Use DNS Made Easy?
Did you know that DNS is one of the most important parts of your business? Why leave managing it to chance? Let DNS Made Easy eliminate the excess costs and headaches associated with running your own DNS infrastructure.
DNS Network World-wide
DNS Made Easy provides an IP Anycast+ network for both our Managed DNS Service and Secondary DNS Service.
IP Anycast Routing provides global load balancing, redundancy, decreased latency, and a true distributed response to denial of service (DoS) and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. Using IP Anycast, each name server IP corresponds to hundreds of systems world-wide that are announced from different geographical locations. DNS queries are then sent to the closest name server to the querying client. With multiple networks dynamically responding to the same IP address, network performance and uptime are drastically increased. There are many reasons why Anycast should be used in a DNS infrastructure including speed, redundancy, and scalability as the core benefits.
See how exactly the DNS Made Easy IP Anycast network increases your speeds and and outperforms traditional unicast solutions.
DNS Made Easy goes a step further with offering an IP Anycast+ network. IP Anycast+ is a proprietary multi-cloud architecture designed by DNS Made Easy to solve the inadequacies of standard IP Anycast networks. IP Anycast+ provides enhanced traffic scalability, deliverability, and speed. DNS Made Easy provides an enterprise network consisting of millions of dollars of infrastructure working to make sure every query is answered correctly as fast as possible.
All of DNS Made Easy systems are located at premium data facilities with multiple data providers. From a network standpoint DNS Made Easy is in the top tier of DNS providers worldwide. We have a historical 8 year 100% uptime and an overall 99.9999% uptime history due to our 5th generation network, and continue to make significant improvements to redundancy and capacity to make sure we keep it that way.
When it comes to advanced features and an unbeatable price, there is no comparison to DNS Made Easy. See why thousands of brands choose to use DNS Made Easy for their enterprise DNS needs, and why you should too!
Proprietary Suite of DNS Solutions
The Elite Resolution Platform is a multi-tiered framework that creates localized server redundancy and scalability within the DNS Made Easy enterprise IP Anycast server constellation.
The localized redundancy provided by the Elite Resolution Platform creates redundant servers within every cluster of servers that are constantly updated through a proprietary multi-tiered zone consistency system we call Peregrine Instant DNS Updates. These servers will automatically begin responding to queries if query load increases or in the unlikely event that a server experiences a catastrophic failure.
The Elite Resolution Services platform enables automatic contingencies such that multiple sites can experience catastrophic outages and all of the remaining sites will smoothly take over and share the query load of the down site(s).
This proprietary platform is implemented at the core of the DNS Made Easy network and guarantees that queries are always answered locally on the name server cluster nearest to the querying client.
All DNS Changes Propagated Globally In An Instant
The DNS Made Easy Peregrine Instant DNS Update system is a proprietary cascading multi-tier system through which all DNS updates for primary managed domains are passed. This system ensures that all DNS updates are reliably and instantly propagated to all DNS Made Easy DNS servers around the world.
The Peregrine Instant DNS Update system implements redundancy at both functional and geographic levels. These levels of redundancy guarantee that all DNS updates are reliably completed regardless of any possible transient system or network issues.
The DNS updates that feed into the Peregrine Instant DNS Update system are generated by user interactions with our DNS management web interface or REST based API, DNS Failover events, and Dynamic DNS API requests. All of these updates are instantly processed and propagated.
Most DNS services measure DNS update speeds in minutes or hours while DNS Made Easy customers enjoy Peregrine Instant DNS updates that can be measured in milliseconds. When we say instant DNS updates, we really do mean instant DNS updates.
