Highest Availability

A secondary DNS service acts as an always-on complement to your existing DNS infrastructure, creating a solution that’s resilient to outages on either network.

If either network becomes unavailable for any reason (hardware failures, DDoS attacks, etc.) the remaining DNS service immediately takes over all requests. Dyn’s global anycast network has achieved 100% availability since its inception.

Industry Leading Expertise

The availability and performance of online services is one of the most important criteria to ensuring an organization’s key initiatives are achieved.

Dyn’s secondary DNS solution is maintained and monitored by many of the world’s most accomplished DNS experts, ensuring your infrastructure is protected against DNS outages caused by human errors, hardware failures, or malicious attacks.

Minimize Risk

As a cloud-based managed service, Dyn's Secondary DNS can be implemented within hours without affecting your existing infrastructure.

An intuitive user interface protects against human error while robust APIs make it easy to quickly migrate to our redundant solution. The end result is a smooth transition to better protection for your applications and services.
