DNS is Vital for reliability
DNS Redundancy is one way to safeguard your Internet-dependent organization. When other providers have outages and downtime, DNS Made Easy is there with 100% reliability to answer queries.
Implementing load balancing techniques to your DNS strategy and having an extra layer of redundancy can ensure businesses stay online 100% of the time. Redundancy not only protects your bottom line—it also protects your brand reputation and ensures an optimum online experience for your users.
Benefits of Redundant DNS
Think of all the parts of your business that have redundancies. Secondary DNS is simply a safeguard that all Internet-dependent businesses should use. Over the past year, there has been a 5% growth in enterprise adoption of multi-vendor DNS configurations.
Even when using on-premises DNS architecture you can enjoy the benefits of DNS redundancy. Add a cloud-based provider, like DNS Made Easy, as a primary or secondary provider to your infrastructure. For extra security, configure your in-house nameservers as hidden masters. Queries will appear to be answered by your in-house nameservers but really, the cloud provider is authoritative.
Better End-User Experience
Maintaining DNS redundancy can improve page load times. Resolving nameservers will start to prefer the provider that responds the fastest. That means queries will more often be served to the better performing provider which, over time, improves resolution times and offers a better end-user experience.
