Best GeoRouting Solutions for Business

davidgestiondbidavidgestiondbi Member, Provider

Hi guys!

I'm looking to implement a GeoRouting feature to one of my website. Any suggestion?

So far, I found Route53 and Rage4 that offer this feature. Any other recommendations? I also look for feedback from users using them.

Thanks for your help!

Regards, David

    DNS Geo solutions are inconsistent. Users will be routed based on the location of the DNS resolver they use, not where they're actually connecting from.

    Unfortunately, I know this can happen. However, still better for an Asian user to be route in EU for example than Canada.

    Otherwise, any other suggestion?

    Other than an anycast setup or CloudFlare-style CDN? Nope ;)

    I've used both nsone.com and dnsmadeeasy (traffic director). Nsone was a bit more accurate and had the option to target by country (DME could only target us west, us east, europe, asia and australia).

    I also liked nsone's pricing scheme over DME (pro rated per year), they did offer a free trial of the traffic director after asking.

    edit: there's also this guy on WHT that did geo dns for $15/million queries, he had a very simple text only site with black background, that's as specific as i can be ;)

    Reliability was great, never had any issues with them except for a small issue with credit usage. The amount of queries was a lot higher than expected, this was due to a lot of calls to AAAA records which were missing and had a much lower TTL than my domain (12 hours vs 5 min).

    Their support is great as well.
