As the only website provider in the industry to provide this level of service, we're proud to do it for every website we build at no additional cost.
Carrollton, Texas (PRWEB) March 02, 2016
Insurance Technologies Corporation (ITC), a provider of agency marketing, rating and management software and services, announced today that it has switched its hosted DNS services to an anycast DNS network with Dyn, a cloud-based Internet Performance Management company, to improve its resiliency and mitigate the effects of DDoS attacks.
Anycast DNS routes each request to the closest server, which reduces downtime for name server events and provides a faster network. It increases DNS lookups by 400 percent, which means Insurance Website Builder websites load faster.
“We know the importance of fast load times and minimal downtimes. For many of our agents, their websites represent a significant portion of their business,” said Rixford. “We moved our hosted DNS services to Dyn because of their performance record and great support matches ITC’s commitment to our agents. As the only website provider in the industry to provide this level of service, we're proud to do it for every website we build at no additional cost.”
The anycast DNS network also provides horizontal scaling, which deploys an additional server if one server is being overloaded and limits downtime. Because of the horizontal scaling, DDoS attacks are less likely to affect Insurance Website Builder websites.
Insurance Website Builder from ITC is the largest provider of websites for insurance agencies in the United States.
Dyn is a cloud-based Internet Performance Management company. Dyn helps companies monitor, control, and optimize online infrastructure for an exceptional end-user experience.
