Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are scary, and they are no laughing matter. In recent DNS outages, large, well-known companies were down due to DDoS attacks. These attacks are geared at taking down websites, causing Internet traffic jams and stealing information.
“The best policy is to face the issues head-on,” said Steven Job, president of DNS Made Easy. “People can’t let fear stop them from being prepared and making good business decisions.”
DNS Made Easy suggests not getting trapped in the spider web of sticky DNS service. Some companies use hosting services that provide DNS. This is typically included with the package rate of signing on for services. However, most of these companies don’t specialize in DNS safety, redundancy, global load balancing and decreased latency.
That lack of specialized service may translate into significant down time or poor site performance. The end goal of a DNS provider is to maximize uptime and keep traffic flowing to the site.
Managing DNS should not be something that is out of sight and out of mind. Unfortunately, unless a company has a whole team dedicated to keeping up with the latest changes in DNS, can constantly monitor for issues as well as resolve problems, issues can easily be missed.
Outsourcing web traffic management can sometimes seem like another ghoulish cost. Outsourcing some services to experts that value money and provide great ROI can often save your organization’s bottom line. Uptime and fast speeds helps ensure satisfied end users, which increases website visits and reduces abandon rates. All these factors can result in increased conversion and sales.
For any company that leverages the Internet for sales, marketing or information, business continuity depends on 100% site availability and fast loading times. Everything on the Internet relies on DNS: web, e-mail, video, audio, and more.
In order to properly defend against attacks, be on the offensive and maintain uptime, outsourcing DNS is the best bet. DNS Made Easy constantly researches, upgrades, and redesigns their network to exceed industry standards and insure it can defend against modern security threats. With 100% of network management being handled in-house, DNS Made Easy ensures you receive the highest quality of service possible.
DNS Made Easy thwarts DDoS attacks with an IP Anycast system, which is a network infrastructure, made up multiple geographically distributed points of presence around the world. This routing provides global load balancing, redundancy, decreased latency, and a true distributed response to denial of service (DoS) and DDoS attacks. This creates a multi-level backup system.
“With the holiday shopping kick up online, it is best to be on you’re A game,” Job said. “DNS Made Easy can help any business navigate through the scary, and sometime intimidating, pathways of DNS services.”
