LoadDNS has taken the steps to strategically place servers in 14 data centers on multiple Tier-1 backbones at critical locations taking both network and geographic location into consideration. Our data centers are on four continents: North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
IP Anycast Routing Technology
Our IP Anycast technology routes DNS queries to the topologically nearest data center. This allows LoadDNS to deliver the fastest resolution times which increases query resilience, performance and redundancy.
Proprietary Non-BIND Software
There have been numerous studies that show “open source” BIND is the top security problem of Internet users. The problems include hijacking, cache poisoning, viruses and spoofing. The implementation of our proprietary non-BIND DNS software has solved many of the above issues that come with the use of BIND.
Advanced Database Technology
LoadDNS's Global DNS solutions utilize advanced replication technology so that within seconds, changes made to DNS records and TTL's are propagated through our world wide network of anycast servers.
DNS Load Balancing
Optimize networks and datacenters by using Directional DNS to load balance direct domain requests to our globally distributed servers. Increase traffic response times and provide a better online experience to your users.
DNS Geo Targeting (Directional DNS)
Directional DNS service for IP-based geolocation enables you to direct Web site visitors from various locations across the globe to specific content servers. Offer language-specific content directly to your users based on their geographic location all from one URL.

Powerful Easy to use Admin Interface
The LoadDNS admin user interface is easy enough for a DNS novice but also provides everything the DNS expert needs to administer 1 domain or 1000's. You have full control of all resource records, domain organization, auto correct basic mistakes, and preview mode. If you change your mind on any changes you made you can revert back to the original settings with the click of your mouse.
Flexible Account Management
Not only can you grant multiple people within your organization account administration responsibilities but assign roles and limit what each one can and cannot do within the administration system.
