Our Global DNS Platform

We operate one of the largest performance-based Anycast DNS networks in the world - deployed in 2003 and now with native IPv6 support.

Our cloud DNS platform boasts 32 name servers in 17 countries utilizing hundreds of different network providers. What does this mean for our customers? It's simple: better performance, redundancy, scalability, capacity. We answer billions of DNS queries every single day, handling DNS traffic for small businesses on up to some of the world's largest corporations. More about our network

DNS Failover Automation

Our DNS failover solution ensures your servers and applications are always available to your users - automatically!

We monitor your mission critical servers from multiple geographic locations. You specify how many locations must agree that your server is no longer reachable, and when that happens, we will automatically change your DNS records to reroute traffic to pre-defined servers, eliminating downtime for your customers. This unique methodology ensures that your servers are always available. More about DNS Failover

GEO DNS Routing

Have you ever wanted to send traffic from visitors in a specific geography or a different continent to a server closer to them? Now you can!

With Total Uptime’s Managed GEO DNS add-on for our Cloud DNS, not only can you direct users to a closer server for a faster browsing experience, but faster web page loads improve SEO as well. When coupled with DNS failover, users can be automatically directed to alternate datacenters during outages or maintenance without a second of downtime. More about GEO DNS

Secondary / Backup DNS

Mirror domains from your existing DNS server to our global network.

Secondary DNS, sometimes referred to as Backup DNS or Slave DNS, allows organizations to utilize more than one DNS provider to host their DNS or to host DNS internally using their in-house corporate name servers but replicate critical DNS zones externally. This simple technique allows organizations to increase DNS redundancy with ease by capitalizing on our massive global network. More about Secondary DNS
