Your visitors arrive at your site from every corner of the globe so why keep them waiting?

1. Visitors looking for your domain are automatically directed to one of our servers closest to them which then responds with your domain records at lightning speed.

3. Your domain is replicated to all our GlobalDNS servers and as such, we can guarantee 100% dns availability and the fastest dns response time on Earth!
