When you want to use your website or send emails, your internet traffic needs to go through something called a DNS (Domain Name System). It's like a traffic controller that makes sure your website and emails are sent to the right place.
Our DNS service is specifically designed to make your online experience more secure and reliable. It's part of our cloud-based hosting products, which separates each service to make them stronger and less likely to fail. This means you can have peace of mind knowing that your website and emails will always be accessible and secure.

What is an Anycast server?
Our premium nameservers are a collection of 34 servers located around the world that share the same IP address. By using these nameservers, denoted with a 'p' prefix, the optimal location is automatically chosen for the best performance and security.
Additionally, these nameservers are designed to handle DDoS attacks by distributing the load across multiple servers, resulting in minimal impact on your website and ensuring it stays online.
DNS Hosting can thus have a 100% uptime due to the large amount of servers worldwide to catch traffic from one server and pass it on to another. Here is where your risk is reduced and uptime from a DNS point of view will be 100%. This will keep your website online and emails working 100% of the time by having no DNS failures. So keeping DNS separate from your hosting for the business that must stay online is imperative.
You do not need to have a working knowledge of DNS although its a definite advantage but only need to understand the concept. IDS Hosting support can assist in setting your DNS, and very little will need to be done on the zone again, but to relax in the knowledge that your risks of downtime are reduced with the benefit of improved online speed and security.
Additional advantages is the facility to park a domain, have statistics available, redirect a website which standard DNS facility cannot do, and more as indicated in the bullet points above.
