Virtual DNS protects and accelerates any organization’s DNS infrastructure through robust DDoS mitigation, lightning-fast DNS lookups, and caching at 64 locations around the globe.
DDoS mitigation on the DNS infrastructure
Lightning-fast DNS lookups due to caching and a global network. Responses are cached milliseconds away from any visitor, anywhere
Bandwidth savings to origin nameservers
The difference between Cloudflare’s DNS and Virtual DNS is that with Virtual DNS, records stay on your own nameservers.
Cloudflare’s DNS proxy service ensured that Digital Ocean’s hundreds of billions of daily DNS requests are 100% clean. Read our case study to learn more.
Virtual DNS provides organizations with a 100% clean DNS traffic by identifying malicious requests and blocking them at the edge.
Virtual DNS also masks the true origin IP addresses of providers’ nameservers behind Cloudflare’s IP addresses, keeping them safe from being targeted by attackers.
With Virtual DNS, Cloudflare caches DNS records at the edge of our globally distributed network, ensuring that queries are resolved lightning-fast on every continent and in every major city regardless of origin server location.
In addition to stopping attack traffic at the Cloudflare edge, Virtual DNS saves bandwidth to the origin nameservers.
Virtual DNS is sold as a separate product, regardless of plan type. For more information, contact our sales team.
