Hosting your own DNS servers usually means that all queries will be resolved from a single physical location. If a visitor far from your DNS server is trying to access your website, the DNS response can take a while to reach them. If your DNS server malfunctions or becomes unavailable for some reason it won’t be able to provide service and will require you to debug it and deploy a fix. Running your own DNS servers also requires knowledge and skills to keep up with latest security measures to keep the servers running smoothly. You have to watch out for DDoS attacks against DNS and other threats so your website can be consistently available.
At Triton Technologies, we have several important goals in mind when designing our Managed DNS Service.
When using our Managed DNS you are relieved from the responsibilities of setting up and maintaining your own servers. By subscribing to our solutions, you don’t need to worry about the details of keeping a global DNS infrastructure running. You simply need to set your records and move on.
In addition, by pooling your services with many others, you are saving money on hardware and software maintenance costs. Rather than building up infrastructure that is sufficiently resilient and redundant, you pay for a service that you know will be reliable and maintained by people who understand DNS.
Security is one of our top priorities at Triton Technologies. In addition to our network security monitoring, by which security, we do everything we can to be aware of any security issues affecting the services on which you depend. As soon as we find out about a vulnerability we get right to patching it. If you were maintaining your own infrastructure, you’d need to do that yourself in addition to making updates to the servers running your applications.
As a managed DNS provider, we are strongly committed to providing the most performant service to our customers. We do this by several means. When you make a change to one of the zones you have hosted with us, we use a proprietary mechanism to update the records at all of our name server nodes across the world. This ensures that as soon as you’ve made an update to your records, they begin propagating regardless of where someone is trying to access your site.
Even if you were confident of your ability to successfully juggle all the other aspects of DNS hosting and maintenance yourself, you still would need to find help from time to time. By choosing to use our managed DNS solutions, you will be in direct contact with members of Triton Technologies Service Team anytime you need help or encounter issues with your DNS.
