GeoDNS

Custom routing logic using Filters and GeoProximity rules

REDUCE LOAD TIMES AND IMPROVE ACCURACY
GeoDNS is a powerful set of tools that allow you to segment your traffic based on your users' location or network.

GeoDNS is routing logic that sits in front of your records and filters in traffic that meets certain parameters that you define. You can use GeoDNS to block traffic from reaching your servers or to optimize user experiences for different locales.

✓ Build your own Content Delivery Network (CDN)
✓ Geographic load balancing
✓ Block malicious or unwanted traffic
✓ Optimize routing for different networks or regions

Multi CDN Management
Create unique routing rules-based
on users' location or network

IP Filters are rules you can apply to your records.
If a user meets the requirement(s) of the filter, they will be answered with that record. Otherwise, they will be answered with the World/Default.

IP Filters can be used to:
✓ Build a firewall at the DNS level that allows you to block malicious traffic before it even reaches your servers.
✓ Create unique rules for mobile traffic, countries, cities, even IP addresses.
Filters can be created for: regions, countries, cities, IP addresses (IPv4 and IPv6), ASN (Autonomous System Network) of the resolving name server, or EDNS client subnet.

Available for A, AAAA, CNAME, and now ANAME records.

Proximity-Based Routing
Reduce load times with localized responses

Our GeoIP engine automatically points your users to the closest servers in your network. You can use it to build your own CDN !

GeoProximity targeting let's you hone in on users from as broad as regional, to as granular as city-level lookups! You can even specify the longitude and latitude of your lookups.

Available for A, AAAA, CNAME, and now ANAME records.

Global Traffic Director (GTD)
Regional Traffic Steering

GTD allows you to create region-specific records. Users' queries are answered by nameservers located in the user's region.

GTD, also known as geo-load balancing can be used to optimize traffic flow and improve query resolution accuracy.

Get the Most Accurate
GeoDNS Responses
When you combine IP Filters or GeoProximity with GTD

The GTD can correct any errors caused by incorrect IP to Location mapping databases from GeoIP services (IP Filters and GeoProximity) as well as incorrect lookups by poor peering practices.

Constellix is the only platform that offers these two services together, giving you the most accurate configurations in the industry. (Patent pending)
