Excedo Premium Anycast DNS

Rock-solid DNS service

Excedo is proud to be one of the most trusted DNS Anycast constellations on the Internet. We have 100+ nodes across 6 continents and a track record of ensuring 100% uptime across a global network. With the addition of Excedo Premium Anycast DNS, we provide a complete suite of authoritative DNS services.

With more than 20 years of DNS experience, we have established expertise in providing rock-solid DNS (Domain Name System) services. Built upon multiple independent and separated anycast networks you can stay assured that your customers will reach your online resources without delays and risks of interruptions.

Our authoritative DNS service is offered as a fully managed DNS service, or you can easily extend your own DNS infrastructure by using our Premium Anycast DNS as a secondary DNS service.

Excedo will perform an advanced health examination of your DNS with Excedo Zonemaster. As a bonus, you will get a better understanding of how the domain name system (DNS) works. When a domain (also called zone) is sent to Excedo Zonemaster, the service investigates the state of the domain from beginning to end.

This is done through Excedo Zonemaster examining DNS from the root (.) to the TLD (top-level domain, for example, .se), and then finally through the DNS servers that contain information about the specified domain (for example, excedo.se).

Excedo Zonemaster is also able to perform other tests, such as checking the DNSSEC signatures, that different hosts can be accessed and that the IP addresses are valid. This is all to make sure that your domain runs as well as possible.

The health check is free of charge, and you will receive an answer to your e-mail within 5 minutes.

Smoother processes

Anycast DNS enables several independent servers to share the same IP address. With Anycast, you seamlessly maintain identical data sets in all locations. This brings your DNS services closer to end users, reducing latency and improving redundancy and resilience. The benefits of the Excedo Premium Anycast DNS service also include simplified DNS management, improved load sharing and DDoS mitigation.

Ensure redundancy and resilence

Anycast allows for multiple name servers to be distributed globally. If an Anycast instance is unavailable, the system automatically reroutes queries to an available location. Using Anycast is the best thing you can do to protect your business from DDoS attacks.

Reduce latency

The distributed nature of an Anycast network means users’ queries are routed to the closest available name server. This provides significantly improved response times.

Must have features for Rock-Solid DNS


Use DNSSEC to protect your domains

The DNSSEC (DNS Security Extensions) protocol has existed for more than a decade. It uses digital signatures to enable DNS records to be authenticated and is the industry standard for protecting against DNS hijacking and man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks. Making sure your domains are protected by DNSSEC is a vital part of your network security.

Be global and local

Use a DNS service with a strong global footprint and good spread of sites in the regions most important to your business. Make sure the Service Level Agreement (SLA) ensures high availability and a sufficient minimum number of available sites at all all times.

Don't rely on a single solution

Using just one type of DNS solution exposes you you to a high risk of failure. Use multiple solutions to guarantee 100% uptime.

Highly recommended features for Rock-Solid DNS

Choose an experienced provider

DNS is critical for your brand. When choosing a provider, look for an organisation that has a high level of DNS expertise, a proven track record of running a high available global service and the competence to help tailor a DNS solution to meet your specific network needs.

Follow best practices

There are a range of tools that help keeping domains secure. Using registration features like RegistryLock can protect domain names from being changed, while using classic access control lists helps protect applications, Internet traffic and monitoring tools.
