Unicast vs. anycast
Unicast is the common standard for the provision of the Domain Name Systems (DNS). Each name server has a unique IP address. DNS requests of the client to the name server need to reach exactly this IP regardless of its location. This can lead to longer running times or even timeouts. In case a name server cannot be reached, all services under the IP will be affected.
With anycast the requests are sent directly to the nearest available name server. This guarantees short response times. In addition, NodeSecure offers high availability of the DNS. If a name server location is restricted, the request will be automatically forwarded to the next name server.
Some of the NodeSecure Anycast name server locations:
Europe: 21 locations | North America: 18 locations | Asia: 4 locations
South America: 1 location | Africa: 1 location | Oceania: 1 location
Additionally, NodeSecure enables you to sign zones with DNSSEC without any extra costs. Using Anycast and DNSSEC is possible with a simple pricing model. The zone administration is carried out conveniently and in real-time through AutoDNS and the XML API.
Using as many name servers as possible on different locations in parallel greatly increases the stability and availability of a domain portfolio. This better protects domains against DDoS attacks (Distributed Denial of Service attacks) in the DNS (Domain Name System). Additional stability and security for reaching a domain can be reached by combining the existing InterNetX name server infrastructure with one or several external name servers. The zone administration of internal and external name servers is carried out conveniently and in real-time through AutoDNS or the XML API.
You can use all InterNetX name server products conveniently through AutoDNS.
