Global Traffic Director

What is the Global Traffic Director?

GTD uses region-specific routing to optimize traffic flow and query resolution accuracy. Traffic is segmented into five different regions and queries are answered by nameservers in their current region.

GTD was designed for users that have region-specific systems. For example, you would use GTD if you had a server in Europe that you want only European traffic to be routed to. You can also use GTD in tandem with DNS Failover to automatically route traffic around regional outages.

Available in:

North America East

North America West
