Easy to configure
Configuring D-Zone for the very first time takes minutes and is risk free. As a secondary service you can leave your existing authoritative DNS in place while configuring D-Zone and for a testing period after set-up. Configuration involves transferring your zone file from your primary name server to the D-Zone master servers which then transfer authority for DNS queries to our global secondary network.Read the step-by-step walkthrough

We tested the authoritative DNS of public, private, and even IT services providers to see how well it is being managed. It began with a research project that queried over 120,000 name servers that have .CA domains relegated to them and was narrowed down to a managable number that provides valuable lessons to any organization operating an authoritative DNS server.
Organizations with mission critical web properties, that manage their own DNS, or that face DDoS attacks benefit from D-Zone.
Whether you manage hundreds or hundreds of thousands of domains D-Zone works for core infrastructure or a value-added feature.
Answering top level DNS queries typically requires multiple DNS providers with global footprints. CIRA has you covered.
