GeoDNS - geoscaling.com?

Trying to figure out a config for viewers at what are effectively the ends of the internet earth - northern europe and Aus/PACific. Was figuring Australian server can serve APAC with relatively little TTFB and Romanian (and potentially french) server for EU - maybe add SG if needed, bvut the missing piece is DNS - the cost of most coommercial services would generally be better spent elsewhere, and there seems to bve nothign between $30 a mointh and free.

geoscaling.com seems to be a really interesting free option, has anyone tried, how reliable (data not uptime) wise are they?

Any other suggestions (other than dont bother, just use a CDN to break ssl origin authentication)

    Global Traffic Director can be added for just $660.00 per domain per year.

    So are you trying to say that the geoDNS location policy is implimented without a policy record?

    Yes thats right

    So the total cost/m would be USD$0.7 + 50c per domain for up to 1x10e9 queries??? seriously?

    Very interesting, though i am still intreagues by geoscaling (i have a thing for non coprorate implimentations, and a bit of a bias against multinational tax cheats)

    policy records are optional and not required to use AWS Route53 geodns records. I use Route53 for geodns

    ns1.com is pretty good and they have a free package upto 500k queries.

    NIXStats monitoring service (servers, http(s), ICMP, tcp ports) - monitoring 13,000+ servers - Uptime Report - API Docs

  • Beware that once you go past the 500k on NS1 it's $10/million... and the next package up is expensive too.

    I was using it years ago. It was good and the owner was really trying to provide a good service. Then the DDOSs came. At some point, they were going to be shutting it down if I recall correctly - surprised it's still active, but good to hear it's alive!
