We have some of the best technical minds on the planet, ensuring that websites are always available and fast and email gets delivered. While our blog is a great place to find awesome DNS and email content, we understand the need for some additional high-level tech talk which is what you can find here.
Why Secondary DNS Is A Hot Topic In Outsourced IaaS
Some enterprise clients prefer not to give away their entire infrastructure to one IaaS provider and still manage their primary nameserver. However, these major brands still want to ensure that their information is secure against any unforeseen incident(s). Since millions of people around the world access their finances or consume their news through these websites, they need to be protected.
The Case Against Free ISP DNS
Many companies ignore the importance of DNS management and leave it to their Internet Service Provider (ISP), but by relying on them for this service, you are unknowingly exposing yourself to continuous outages, affecting your website and the general accessibility of online services. Outsourcing DNS to a specialized provider will increase your uptime and prevent revenue loss while reducing the hidden soft costs of DNS maintenance.
Inside DynECT Traffic Management
Dyn knows the importance of having continuous insight on fast response times as 80% of recursive DNS servers on the Internet will form an affinity to the fastest responding nameservers. The architecture of our Anycast Network ensures that a failure in any one component of the fastest responding data center does not cause a black hole or outage for any given region in the world.
With that said, there’s a reason why DynECT Traffic Management is one of our most popular features.

Defending Against DDoS Attacks to Managed DNS Systems
On today’s Internet, a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack against your infrastructure is a potential threat that could compromise your business’ ability to perform its online functions, including ecommerce, web presence and email. As a premium provider of managed DNS services, Dyn has architected a global IP Anycast network designed to withstand significant DDoS threats by building protection into its network at every layer.
Making Choices With DNS-Based Traffic Management
With DNS-based Traffic Management, the concept of single-vendor solutions for data center, cloud, CDN or anti-DDoS is eliminated because all of the solutions get normalized to a simple piece of core Internet glue – the means in which data is routed to the service provider – via IP address or by hostname.
