Global Anycast

Speed, squared.

StackPath 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, based on geographic proximity or network conditions
  • Near real-time propagation
    All DNS updates pushed worldwide in seconds

High Performance

Dependability is our domain.

Available. Reliable. Scalable. StackPath 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

Built-in Security

We put more D in DNS.

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

  • DDoS Protection
    Platform-wide DDoS keeps all StackPath services secure
  • DNSSEC (coming soon)
    A higher order of authentication protects against forged or altered DNS data, commonly used for DNS cache poisoning

Additional Features

Technology

IPv6 Support

Our platform is not just at the cloud’s edge, but the leading edge too. StackPath DNS provides IPv6-compliant Recursive DNS, with more IPv6 functionality and support coming soon.

Optimization

Platform Native

There are advantages to being on the inside. StackPath DNS provides exceptional performance regardless of where your workload lives. But it works even better with other StackPath services, providing faster first bytes. In some cases it's already integrated, like with our delivery service, to streamline setup and operations

Flexibility

3rd Party Friendly

Our DNS hasn’t met an infrastructure it doesn’t like. StackPath DNS can route users to cloud services outside of our platform, letting you provide a measure of StackPath security and performance to legacy workloads and applications.

Cost Effective

Month-to-month

Pay as you go. Stay if you want to. StackPath DNS is available by the month, like all of our services, and comes with a healthy included number of domains and monthly requests, and low rates for additional names and queries. Use what you need. Cancel when you want.
