It’s half way through 2014 and DNS Made Easy is celebrating several mid-year milestones.
DNS Made Easy ranks in the top three fastest DNS services for more than two years. DNS Made Easy consistently ranks as the number one provider for the fastest DNS speed in the industry, according to SolveDNS, a third party network research firm.
June was no exception. DNS Made Easy had an average speed of 6.09, and the closest competitor was 1.32 milliseconds (roughly 25% slower) behind.
“DNS Made Easy continually outperforms other enterprise DNS services that are often 100 to 1,000 times their pricing,” said Steven Job, president of DNS Made Easy. “Customers who use DNS Made Easy have access to the fastest network in the industry.”
DNS Made Easy sees over 15% growth in its Global Traffic Director Services and releases plans to expand to a fifth region of geographic IP routing to provide better service. The expansion allows Global Traffic Director (GTD) to optimize and direct traffic flow based on geographic location of the end user. This allows clients to setup specific DNS responses based on the region of the lookup.
An example use base would be to direct end-users in Europe to European servers and users in United States to US-based servers.
“We have seen over a 15 percent increase in geo-specific queries using our GTD services,” Job said. “The demand for geo-aware DNS services is growing because people are starting to understand that routing to the closest web server and application server translates to faster speeds.”
DNS Made Easy segments traffic in four locations, with a fifth location coming this year. The locations include North American East (previously called US-East); North American West (previously called US-West); Europe and Asia with additional services in Australia (coming by Q3 2014).
DNS Made Easy launches new tutorials to help clients and potential customers get started in their DNS education. The extensive tutorial help page covers eight topics: Getting Started; View All Tutorials; Managed DNS; Secondary DNS; DNS Failover; Global Traffic Director; Main Services; and Knowledge Base.
Users can learn – for free – how to add a domain name, delete a domain, view assigned name servers, configure reverse DNS, configure DNS failover and even learn how to start a free trial.
“The tutorials are a great example of how we develop technology based on what our customers need,” Job said. “Our clients expect more and we deliver more.”
DNS Made Easy formed partnerships to benefit clients. DNS Made Easy partnered with SendGrid, and the relationship gives the company the ability to quickly and easily add application e-mail to web properties hosted on DNS Made Easy’s Enterprise DNS services.
As a SendGrid Partner, DNS Made Easy clients will gain access to a range of resources including training and support. Other free services passed on to DNS Made Easy clients include advanced reporting and analytics, basic and advanced deliverability features, marketing e-mail services and technical support. More than 150,000 web and mobile application companies use SendGrid to make e-mail delivery simple for their applications.
“Combining our DNS and monitoring expertise together with SendGrid’s productivity offerings open new doors for DNS Made Easy clients to access the tools they need to get more done in their day,” Job said.
DNS Made Easy and parent company, Tiggee, successfully launched Constellix. Based on feedback provided by thousands of Constellix Sonar beta users, the heavily sought-after features of Constellix Sonar were released to further the development of a complete system monitoring and traffic optimization tool.
“The demand for an enterprise monitoring system is growing,” Job said “Our engineers have been using this monitoring system for years, and now we are able to share it with the public.”
