GTD uses region-specific rules to answer queries in the originating region. GTD, also known as geo-load balancing, is used to optimize traffic flow and query resolution accuracy.
Technically speaking, GTD segments query traffic into five different regions. These queries are answered by nameservers in their current/originating 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.
Try our new GeoDNS service Constellix. Route traffic by proximity and decide how users will access your domains based on their: location, IP, ASN, or network.
GTD corrects wrong resolution errors caused by IP allocation.
Queries are answered locally, improving resolution times and accuracy.
Combine the GTD with failover for added redundancy. Automatically redirect traffic around outages.
