Secondary DNS

DNS is a critical component to ensuring online services remain available and that end users are able to connect to those services as quickly as possible. With revenue-generating web applications, customer satisfaction, and employee productivity all dependent on DNS, you can’t afford to have your DNS service unavailable or underperforming for any amount of time.

Dyn’s cloud-based Secondary DNS solution serves as a redundant complement to your existing DNS service to ensure your most critical applications remain available and that end users reach those applications faster than with any other solution.

Secondary DNS sits on top of our global anycast network that delivers industry-leading response times worldwide, as well as 24 x 7 protection against Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks at the DNS layer.
