4 reasons you should get a premium DNS service

By James C | Friday, 25 September 2015

Getting online has never been easier. At Crazy Domains, we offer our valued customers the ability to register the perfect domain name and host it on a professionally built website in just a few quick clicks.

It literally is "Crazy easy for the Crazy busy"!

But we also know there are customers with particular requirements that need a tailored package with premium options. These are often businesses seeking a higher level of security and resilience, or website owners who attract large volumes of website traffic.

This is why Crazy Domains recently launched one of the first Australian-based Premium DNS networks, tailored for the needs of Australian website owners.

What is DNS?

DNS is the function of the internet that makes your domain name resolve and premium DNS hosting is critical in the delivery of fast and secure response times for your web assets.

For those not in the know, when establishing an online presence every website owner must set up DNS hosting to operate the servers which manage traffic to a website, mail or web applications. Whilst a standard DNS setup is more than enough for regular websites, there are many customers who actively seek a premium DNS service for added piece of mind, faster performance and greater protection from the threats your website faces everyday.

The Crazy Domains Premium DNS service provides customers with a superior option for their DNS hosting which will deliver increased security, online performance and protection from Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks – all covered by a 100% Service Level Agreement.

In addition to this, the newly-upgraded service includes instant connection to business apps including Blogger, Google, Shopify and Weebly, to ensure the online set-up process remains fast and efficient.

This means Australian website owners now have access to a locally managed, premium DNS hosting network to support the performance of their online businesses, email and critical web-based applications.

For you tech-heads out there, the Crazy Domains Premium DNS network is based on an advanced, globally redundant Anycast DNS cloud to protect customers from online threats. Anycast services ensure redundancy in the provision of DNS services to protect against a single point of failure across the network.

What's the advantage?

Premium DNS gives faster resolution times because the query will be answered by the closest server, and it guards against DDoS attacks to ensure that your domain name, mail and web forwarding records remain up in the event of a DDoS threat.

Our premium DNS service offers the very best DNS management, complete with the latest DNS threat mitigations, to ensure our customers are able to forget about the technical risk associated with DNS management and focus on their core business.
