It’s been an exciting year at DNS Made Easy and things are moving full speed ahead as we enter into the final holiday stretch! In this blog, we’ll recap what we’ve done to improve our user experience and our network. You’ll also get a sneak peek into what’s to come in 2022.
Network and Infrastructure Growth for Ultimate Performance and Reliability
DNS Made Easy runs on parent company Tiggee LLC’s Anycast+ network. Each of our nameservers is company-owned and maintained, and strategically positioned in top-tier data centers around the globe. Since 2002, the DNS Made Easy network has grown from a one-person operation with no PoPs to a multi-million dollar corporation with 23 PoPs (and counting), over 3,200+ peers, 300 Gbps of peering capacity, 730 Gbps of transit capacity, and 4TB of DDoS protection.
It is thanks to its battle-tested, self-healing infrastructure that DNS Made Easy has been able to provide unparalleled reliability and industry-leading speeds. With a proven 12-year track record of 100% uptime—the longest in the industry—our clients know they can trust us to keep them online. It is important to us that your organization has the best online experience possible, which is why our top priority at DNS Made Easy is to continually expand our network and develop innovative solutions for a modern-day world.
2021 Global PoP Expansions
DNS Made Easy’s network has grown considerably over the last two years. In 2021, users around the globe have benefited from the two additional points of presence (PoP) added by parent company Tiggee LLC:
Paris, France – August 2021
Our move into Paris, France brought our customers an even greater speed boost for the 67+million residents of France, as well as Western Europe in general.
Toronto, Ontario – June 2021
Toronto was DNS Made Easy’s first-ever Canada PoP and was added to the Tiggee network to increase speed and performance for Toronto and the surrounding areas, which encompasses a population of more than 6.5 million people.
2020 PoP Expansions
In 2020, Tiggee added two points of presence and a new monitoring location to upgrade its already extensive network:
South Korea Monitoring – November 2020
To address customer needs, the Tiggee network added DNS monitoring nodes in Seoul, South Korea. This expansion allows domain owners to track hosts, run traceroutes, and perform instant checks.
South Africa – October 2020
A major addition to the DNS Made Easy Network for 2020 was our expansion into South Africa. This PoP provided our partners in the area with faster speeds and better performance, drastically improving traffic optimization.
India – February 2020
As India is the second-largest online market in the world with more than 560 million internet users, an expansion into Mumbai was a priority for DNS Made Easy and the Tiggee network in 2020. The entire 1.4+ billion population of the country and its surrounding areas have benefited from the improved speeds of this PoP.
Another major addition to the Tiggee/DNS Made Easy family in 2021 was the acquisition of PerfOps, the industry-leading enterprise data monitoring suite for DNS and Cloud performance. With PerfOps under the Tiggee umbrella, DNS Made Easy customers will benefit from the company’s access to even larger and in-depth data sets, which can be used to troubleshoot and improve the entire Tiggee network.
