CDNetworks Cloud DNS is built on a globally distributed platform across 48 strategic locations – from the US to Australia. Built-in redundancy ensures that the DNS hosting infrastructure is always available. Near real-time DNS data propagation ensures that DNS queries are reliably and correctly answered with the latest data. Intelligent routing using IP Anycast improves application performance by directing DNS queries to the closest topological location. The distributed platform is resilient to DDoS attacks, and can seamlessly scale up to handle unlimited number of domains and queries.

CDNetworks’ Cloud DNS service eliminates the need for time-consuming DNS requests back to San Francisco, so customers are served from the closest DNS server, thus ensuing fast website interaction. With CDNetworks’ 48 DNS points of presence around the globe, iOffer has seen tremendous growth in new markets, including Europe, China, and throughout Asia.”
