GeoDNS is a powerful tool that enables organizations to optimize their online presence and enhance user experiences by directing users to specific servers based on their geographical location. In this article, we will explain in detail what it is, how it works and its benefits. So, let’s start!
At its core, the Domain Name System (DNS) is responsible for translating human-readable domain names into IP addresses, allowing computers to locate resources on the Internet. GeoDNS takes this a step further by incorporating geolocation data to intelligently route user requests to the nearest or most appropriate server. This means that a user accessing a website from Asia might be directed to a server in Singapore, while a user from Europe might be directed to a server in Frankfurt, all within the same domain.
