Most people might not know what the Domain Name System (DNS) is, but in truth, every time you use anything on the internet — visit a website like this one, send an email or watch a video — you’re using the DNS. Don’t believe us? Check out this video revealing what’s under the hood of the internet.
Now, we know this is an essential part of the Internet, but why should you care? Well, by outsourcing your managed DNS you could improve a whole list of things about your website, app or home server. Here, we even made you the list!
1. The network. Your business relies on being available on the internet, and the first part of that is DNS. Companies that do DNS have fast, reliable networks that guarantee you’ll be online 24/7/365.
2. Expertise. Just like mechanics, folks that manage the DNS all day are passionate about it. They’re the ones that do it best.
3. Infrastructure. There’s a lot of technology and hardware that goes into making the internet work. Very few businesses have the time and resources to build, maintain and deploy data centers around the world. But managed DNS providers do. Let them do it for you.
4. Advanced services. DNS providers offer advanced services, like failover, traffic management and geographically specific look-ups. All of these help you optimize your business.
