DNS Made Easy Sees Large Increase in Demand from Last Month

DNS Attacks Take Down Sites Large and Small – What You Can Do to Be Prepared

Reston, VA (PRWEB) February 26, 2014

Cyber attacks are growing in frequency and have the ability to affect the bottom line for thousands of companies. That can translate into millions lost in revenue.

Some companies use hosting services that provide Domain Name Service (DNS). This is typically included with the package rate of signing on for services. However, most of these companies don’t specialize in DNS safety, redundancy, global load balancing and decreased latency. That lack of specialized service may translate into significant down time.

"The end goal of a DNS provider is to maximize uptime and keep traffic flowing to the site," said Steven Job, president of DNS Made Easy, which has a 13-year leading up time, the best in the industry.

DNS Made Easy conducted a survey , which revealed more companies are realizing the difference between free registrar DNS enterprise, low quality IP Anycast DNS, and enterprise DNS. More than 87% of new users have chosen to use DNS Made Easy for its enterprise DNS, fastest speed and overall uptime. This is compared to January where 42% of users have chosen DNS Made Easy for price. In fact, new users increased in February by 37% from January.

"DNS Made Easy offers a unique enterprise solution where we offer the highest quality enterprise DNS service in the industry, maintaining cost leadership and offering services for a fraction of other inferior services," Job said. "We are also routinely ranked by third party companies as being the fastest DNS provider in the industry."

Demand for redundant and enterprise DNS has skyrocketed with recent amplification attacks hitting an all time high with DNS and the newer NTP amplification.

"Our history in uptime makes us the go-to provider for DNS," Job said. "Our service is two-to-three times faster than competing DNS services, and we maintain uptime."

In recent DNS outages, large, well-known companies were down. Outages like these recent ones stem from what appear to be DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks.

These attacks are geared at taking down websites and causing internet traffic jams. Recent attacks have brought down free unicast DNS services provided by registrars and other IP Anycast DNS services that were not designed to handle the capacity of current DDoS amplification attacks.

DNS Made Easy thwarts these attacks with an IP Anycast Routing system, which is a network infrastructure made up multiple geographically distributed points of presence around the world. This routing provides global load balancing, redundancy, decreased latency, and a true distributed response to denial of service (DoS) and DDoS attacks.

"A network of this nature is fully redundant allowing traffic to travel the most efficient path to the destination," Job said. "This creates a multi-level backup system."

In order to properly defend against attacks, be on the offensive and maintain uptime, outsourcing DNS is the best bet. DNS Made Easy has proprietary technologies designed to provide the most accurate and reliable DNS services in the world.

One such technology is DNS Made Easy’s Elite Resolution Platform, which is a proprietary multi-tiered framework that creates localized server redundancy and scalability within the DNS Made Easy enterprise IP Anycast+ server constellation.

DNS Made Easy constantly researches, upgrades, and redesigns their network to exceed industry standards and insure it can defend against modern security threats. With 100% of network management being handled in-house, DNS Made Easy ensures you receive the highest quality of service possible.
