DNS services are getting more popular every year. More and more companies are deciding to take advantage of Cloud infrastructure and advanced tech that DNS providers offer. Using a professional DNS service, you can easily manage your domain names and take advantage of various professional tools that will facilitate your daily life. DNS services can be conditionally divided into two types:
Free DNS service - it gives your domain name the ability to be visible on the Internet. It is free to use but has a very limited number of professional features. It is suitable for people who are using a DNS service for the first time.
Premium DNS service - it provides a wide range of professional features (higher speed, more DNS zones, Load balancing methods, DNSSEC support, DNS Failover, and many others). Using Premium DNS is the best solution for medium and large businesses with high traffic and enhanced security needs!
Why do you need to start using ClouDNS?
ClouDNS is one of the most popular companies worldwide that provide DNS services. Let’s explore some of the most important of them that you can take advantage of:
Dynamic DNS - provides an option to change the IP address of one or multiple DNS records automatically when the IP address of your device is changed dynamically by the internet provider. You can find this service in our Free DNS plan.
Anycast DNS - a network addressing and routing methodology, in which datagrams from a single sender are routed to the topologically nearest node with least congested route in a group of potential receivers. It is a great option if you want to maximize the speed, minimize downtime and provide our customers with the highest possible SLA.
Reverse DNS - a handy DNS service for web admins who manage their own mail servers. Additionally, the Reverse DNS service is something you can simply move to ClouDNS as it ensures maximum redundancy and availability.
Secondary DNS - a great way to distribute the DNS traffic for a domain name to two or more DNS providers for the best possible uptime and redundancy in a very easy and friendly way. Some of the main benefits of setting a Secondary DNS include 100% Uptime, Backup DNS, Additional security, and many others!

DNS services are essential for online business owners for several reasons. The main ones are as follows:
Improved website performance
DNS services can help to enhance website loading speeds, allowing visitors to access content quicker. This results in a positive user experience.
By implementing DNS services, you can help protect your website from malicious attacks. They can detect and block malicious requests which want to reach your website (view DDoS Protected DNS plans).
DNS services provide a more reliable connection to a website. DNS servers are distributed across different physical locations. ClouDNS DNS network consists of 39 POPs located on 6 continents. This ensures that if one server is down, others can take over, allowing users to remain connected without interruption.
It’s generally more cost-effective to use a DNS service rather than an internal server for IP address resolution. DNS services require a small initial investment and provide cost-saving benefits, including security and performance optimization.
