Every userís first interaction with your website begins with a series of DNS queries. The Domain Name System (DNS) is a distributed internet database that maps human-readable names to IP addresses, ensuring users reach the correct website when entering a URL. DNS mappings are maintained in special-purpose servers called DNS nameservers. When a user enters your companyís URL, a DNS query is routed to a DNS nameserver containing the address mappings for your companyís internet domain.
The fast-evolving digital landscape is changing the game for all organizations. The way we consume content, conduct research, consume video and music, and drive efficiency in our work environment is raising the bar for digital experience. Organizations that rely on the internet to reach customers and drive revenue increasingly turn to cloud-based infrastructure and content delivery networks (CDNs) to achieve the reach and global footprint needed to keep up with customer demands. Delivering these services with high availability and performance across an unpredictable internet over which you have very little visibility and control is a major challenge.
