AnyCast DNS

The first step to increasing your site performance begins here.

Many businesses might not consider this, but the real first experience your end users have with your site’s performance occurs the second they click your name after conducting a search through a web browser. When they click, that web browser goes searching for your IP address–a DNS request–scouring name servers to find your site’s IP address, get directed to it and then load it. How long it takes to do accomplish this–to search through numerous name servers across the globe often times – can add time to how long it takes for your site to be found and begin loading. But Anycast DNS is a way to shortcut all the name servers and get your website up on user’s monitors faster and more reliably.

Through Anycast DNS, your DNS traffic is balanced across multiple PEER 1 Hosting name servers located in each of our geographically distributed datacenters throughout North America and Europe. With our proprietary RapidEdge technology platform and IP Anycast Routing, Anycast DNS automatically routes users to the closest name server to resolve DNS requests. By doing so, Anycast DNS dramatically decreases latency, and increases website performance and uptime. The result is a far better user experience.

As an added benefit, Anycast DNS is also solid protection against network failures, natural disasters and DDoS attacks directed toward your domain name services. Not only does our DNS solution increase speed for free, it increases availability, too.
