There are certain things that are just better together: cookies and milk, peanut butter and jelly, and CDNs and Managed DNS, just to name a few. If you’re not familiar with that last classic pairing, you should be. Pairing a managed DNS solution with your CDN provides your website with extra performance, reliability, and flexibility.
Purchasing a CDN is a huge investment and without managed DNS, you might as well be throwing that investment away. If your DNS goes down, it doesn’t matter how well your CDN is performing; no one will be able to access your website.
Of course, there are multiple different options for what you can use for DNS for your website. You can use your CDN’s DNS service, use the DNS offered by your hosting provider, or even do it by yourself, but there are of course downsides to each of these options. Flip through the Slideshare below to find out why Managed DNS is your CDN’s true best friend.
