When it comes to DNS, there's nothing we love more - except DNS management. And maybe Secondary DNS. Or Failover. Even anomaly detection. Oh who are we kidding, if it's even remotely close to the topic of DNS, we got you covered!
According to Carnegie Mellon University, a staggering 89.2% of the top 100,000 most visited websites rely on a single provider for their DNS management vs using two providers to add redundancy and eliminate a SPoF (single point of failure).
Did you know that your organization can use Cloudflare’s CDN, DNS, and WAF solutions in tandem with another provider? Not only can you protect your mission-critical domains from outages, but you can also work with Constellix for an equally fast, more reliable network. Constellix boasts over 11 years of 100% uptime.
In a word, yes! Introducing a multi-DNS architecture is one that utilizes multiple authoritative nameservers from two or more providers.
If you solely rely on Cloudflare as your one and only DNS solution, you are vulnerable to outages. The unfortunate truth is that since 2015, Cloudflare has experienced an outage on one or more occasions each year. See the chart below that showcases the historical outages since 2015 from the top DNS providers in the industry.

The average cost of IT downtime averages around $5,600 per minute for all businesses. But this figure can drastically increase for enterprise-level organizations. For example, a company like Amazon or Apple, which reported revenues as high as $950,000 per minute in 2020 could stand to lose $57,000,000 in just an hour.

This is the most common kind of secondary DNS configuration and is supported in Cloudflare. The primary provider is where you update your record configurations, whereas the secondary receives automatic record updates via AXFR/IXFR transfers. If DNS Made Easy is the secondary provider, we instantly replicate this data to more than 2,000 nameservers over our Triple IP Anycast network. In this scenario, you would need to add both providers' nameserver sets to your registrar.
