From the whitepaper:

“What is DNS? The Domain Name System (DNS) is a global Internet directory that maps human-readable domain names to unique identifiers for computers, commonly referred to as IP addresses. A common analogy is a phonebook that maps a human name to a phone number. Every time a user types in a Website name or email address, the DNS system is invoked in the background. The system, which is comprised of globally distributed programs called nameservers, translates the target name into a unique IP address. This allows the user to connect to the correct Website or email inbox.”

If you are using a Content Delivery Network for your Website, it is advantageous to use DNS services from the same provider, if available. Outsourcing your Cloud DNS services to a CDN provider that has a global footprint has all the advantages of managed DNS provider. In addition, it improves the performance of your Website.
