Managed DNS

Make sure your online properties are always available, to all your worldwide users, with our global, Anycast-based Managed DNS featuring blazing fast resolutions, near real-time update propagation, and the security-first posture of our entire edge platform.

Global Anycast

StackPath Managed DNS is powered by a worldwide Anycast network built within the same advanced network infrastructure as all services in our platform. Our customized network and computing hardware in every PoP can service any DNS request or record change at lightning speeds.

End users get exceptionally low query latency. You get nearly instantaneous DNS record management changes, ideal for faster migrations, scalability, and failover actions.

Fast Resolution

DNS data is held and served right at the cloud’s edge.

Smart Routing

DNS traffic is automatically routed to the most optimal DNS server.

Near Real-time Propagation

All DNS updates pushed worldwide in seconds.


High Performance

Available. Reliable. Scalable. StackPath Managed DNS is designed for the most demanding applications and the organizations that love them. It leverages the strength and design of our network infrastructure to deliver the highest performance and minimize operational challenges as well as business risk.

Redundancy and Optimization

With queries serviced by every PoP, there is no single point of failure and an infinite number of routing options.

Automated Scaling

Smart capacity and performance scaling, worldwide, deftly reacts to query spikes without human intervention (yours or ours).

Built-in Load Balancing and Failover

Intelligent traffic management and seamless handoffs minimizes, if not eliminates, DNS bottlenecks and downtime.

Guaranteed Uptime

As with all StackPath services, our DNS comes with a 100% uptime for organizations of any size.

Secure by Default

StackPath Managed DNS puts our entire secure platform between your properties and every name query. Platform-wide protections including Layer 3 and Layer 4 DDoS mitigation, 2FA, and more—all with no additional charges—provide DNS that’s as safe as it is speedy.

Platform-wide DDoS Protection

Network-level DDoS mitigation technologies protect all StackPath services by default from Level 3 through 5 DDoS attacks.

DNSSEC (coming soon)

A higher order of authentication protects against forged or altered DNS data, commonly used for DNS cache poisoning.


Additional Features

IPv6 Support

StackPath Managed DNS provides IPv6-compliant recursive DNS, with more IPv6 functionality and support coming soon.

3rd Party Friendly

StackPath Managed DNS works with services outside of our platform, providing our security and performance advantages to legacy workloads.

Platform Native

StackPath Managed DNS works even better with other StackPath services, providing faster first bytes as well as streamlined setup and operations.
