Our Global DNS Network
DNS Made Easy operates Internet backbones with the largest and most reliable data providers in the business. Providing answers to each DNS request with complete redundancy is what we guarantee for each of the 5 billion DNS requests we receive each day. We believe that having zero downtime is not only expected in the DNS business, but required.
A Network Fully Managed and Controlled In-house
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.
We Operate a 5th Generation Network
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.
Tier 1 Providers and Global Network Locations
DNS Made Easy has built a core IP Anycast routed DNS architecture built with Juniper Networks equipment that has provided our clients with a 99.9999% uptime history. The use of IP Anycast routing ensures our network is of the highest quality as well as fully redundant with no single point of failure. A 99.9999% overall uptime history is something that very few providers worldwide can claim and DNS Made Easy was one of the first DNS providers to offer a 500% SLA for all DNS services. As always, we are raising the standard for DNS services and the market as whole.
DNS Made Easy servers are located on site at world class facilities with 24/7 support. Each cluster of servers has internet access via multiple gigabit connectivity to provide maximum throughput for DNS query traffic. Intelligently-routed bandwidth combines connectivity from over 20 diverse providers. Border Gateway Protocol 4 (BGP4) is incorporated to ensure continuous uptime. Intelligent routing reduces latency by allowing incoming and outgoing packets to take the shortest, most efficient path meaning that our network is optimized for low-latency applications such as DNS.
