DNS Made Easy operates on the fastest and most reliable DNS network (AS16552) in the world. Our points of presence (PoPs) are strategically located at crucial peering points for optimal connectivity. We operate on bare metal nameservers as opposed to other services that run on small virtual cloud servers (VPSs) or cloud instances that aren't built to scale with sudden DDoS attacks. DNS Made Easy runs its full network—from Layer 1 to Layer 7. None of our service are proxied through other networks.
Since 2001, DNS Made Easy has led the industry in speed and performance. We are so confident in our network that we guarantee 100% uptime or your money back. No other provider has the historical evidence to match our uptime history or speeds.
Our #1 network stats can be verified by third-party, independent resources. Because of this, DNS Made Easy also offers the highest SLA in the industry. Read more
Our network (AS16552) was designed to withstand a variety of DNS-based attacks in both scale and complexity. This is how we are able to guarantee 100% uptime and the fastest resolution times in the industry.
Before queries reach our nameservers, we use a proprietary “scrubbing” algorithm to clean out malicious traffic. We have also equipped all of our PoPs with a comprehensive system of firewalls that act as an invincible barrier against potential threats. Additionally, Tier 1 scrubbing is contracted to provide additional capacity and security as necessary during larger attacks.
✔ Proprietary and open source firewall and intrusion detection services
✔ Network designed and optimized for DNS
✔ Remote traffic blackholing and bandwidth capacity agreements with Tier 1 upstream providers
✔ Tier 1 DDoS mitigation strategies
✔ Proprietary and open source DDoS mitigation devices
✔ Distributed infrastructure monitoring that utilizes internal and third party monitoring services
✔ Heavily enforced employee access control and information disclosure policies
✔ Automated zone comparison on all DNS Servers
✔ Only DNS provider in the world to have true 100% uptime—SLA based on historical evidence.
Having zero downtime is not only expected in the DNS industry, it's required. That’s why we engineered a proprietary, multi-tiered framework that creates localized server redundancy and scalability within our IP Anycast server constellation. Every server cluster has its own assigned set of redundant servers that are constantly updated via a proprietary layered zone consistency system, Peregrine Instant DNS Update Service (PIDUS). We call this IP Anycast+.
If a server cluster is overloaded with traffic, its redundant counterpart will take on a portion of the traffic. All of our nameservers are preconfigured to handle these contingencies. This allows our network to withstand catastrophic localized and regional outages. In the event of an issue, redundant server clusters automatically take over the query load with no appreciable effects to querying clients.
Any time you make an update to a record, those changes are instantaneously propagated to all of our nameservers in our global network.
We call this Peregrine Instant DNS Updates, which use a multi-tiered cascading system to update nearby nameserver clusters in just a few milliseconds.
We manage and control every aspect of our network at DNS Made Easy—from contract to rack, to router, to switch, to nameserver.
Our main focus is and always will be DNS. Other providers don't share the same sentiment.
This may not seem vital on the surface. But when you take into account that many DNS vendors outsource part of all of their network and lack the technical expertise to manage a network of that magnitude internally, the benefits of a robust, self-sufficient network becomes clear.
