How does Anycast DNS work?
Our tech experts have developed a service that significantly reduces the risk of DNS service disruptions. Anycast is a technology for routing network traffic that increases the speed and availability of your online resources. With Anycast, an IP address becomes available in multiple geographic locations.
- Made up of 42 DNS servers
- Spread out on 21 nodes worldwide
Anycast ensures optimal load balancing as network traffic is routed to multiple nodes. This evenly distributes the load, thereby improving the speed, performance, and stability of the network.
With Anycast, the IP of every DNS is available in multiple geographic locations around the world. This increases the availability of your services as traffic and requests are automatically sent to the closest available DNS server. If one node is not available, traffic is automatically redirected to the next one, without disruption.
Anycast has comprehensive safeguards against possible DDoS attacks. Through its geographical distribution, traffic can be swiftly redirected to other nodes in case of any problems.
With Anycast, DNS lookups are routed to the node closest geographically. This improves request deployment and shortens response time by reducing round-trip time, hops, and latency for your users – both locally and globally.
Why is Anycast DNS needed?
Websites, emails, business systems, IP telephony, apps, etc. are all dependent on DNS working. That’s why DNS service outages can create a lot of problems for businesses, the consequences being lost revenue, reduced productivity, and damaged brand trust.
