Internet and DNS in Asia (Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and more)

Let’s take a digital journey through Asia and examine the Internet and Domain Name System (DNS) connectivity. In today’s article, we’ll uncover the technical wonders and vibrant stories that make Asia a hub of innovation and progress in the global digital landscape. Join us in discovering how technology, culture, and connectivity combine to shape the dynamic future of this diverse continent.

Current Internet state in Asia

Let’s first talk about the internet in the Asia Pacific region. According to Statista, this region is the most important internet area in the world. There are more than a billion users, with the 3 most connected countries – China (939.8m), India (624m) and Indonesia (202,6m).

Despite the enormous numbers, there is still plenty of room for growth. The Internet penetration there is 67,4%, so there are still more people there that don’t use the Internet. There are many users, and more are yet to connect. This makes it an exciting market. With a lot of traffic, the need for DNS services in Asia will just grow as well. So to provide an excellent service in Hong Kong or Japan you will need DNS.

South Asia internet users are increasing

South Asia is less developed but fast growing. Since 2015 there are 70m new users, and now the total number exceeds 400m. It is more than the population in the whole United States. But still the speed is not good enough, and the infrastructure needs improvement. This area will need the extra help of a DNS in Asia. DNS in Malaysia or DNS in Singapore is a must for perfect service.

How DNS can help?

DNS in Asia can help you with your business in the region, thanks to the different DNS servers that are close to the users, you can provide a faster domain resolution. It can happen in just milliseconds, and your customers will get speedier page opening.

This can lead to more conversion for you and better SEO results. We all know how important it is to get well-ranked in Google and other search engines.

Another nice benefit is the uptime. You can guarantee 100% uptime for your visitors. Like this, you won’t miss a sale.
