SAN JOSE, Calif., March 13 — CDNetworks now has 48 Cloud Domain Name System (DNS) Servers located around the world, surpassing all leading DNS networks. DNS is a distributed database that maps website names to IP addresses. Almost every Internet transaction accesses DNS and CDNetworks brings DNS closer to all regions of the globe for customers such as iOffer.
“iOffer serves a global buying and selling online marketplace from the San Francisco-based datacenter,” said Ryan Boyce, CEO, iOffer. “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.”
Over the past year, CDNetworks has added Cloud DNS servers in Asia, Russia, Europe, and South America increasing from 37 to 48 dedicated DNS servers. Gomez tests show that CDNetworks’ global DNS performance is 37% faster than the leading DNS service provider and up to ten times faster in Asia.
Retail, financial trading, travel booking, and online gambling benefit from speed and increased security. Online gambling sites, in particular, need to quickly map the IP address to names and locations so they don’t serve content where prohibited by law.
CDNetworks Cloud DNS service also protects against DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks and vulnerability to spoofing with a massively distributed architecture and added security features.
“CDNetworks is committed to accelerating our customers’ websites and cloud applications and DNS plays a major role in performance and security,” said Jeff Kim, President & COO of CDNetworks Americas/EMEA. “That’s why we continue to invest and expand our Cloud DNS server presence to provide a global reach including emerging and growing markets.”
