Amazon Uses UltraDNS


Recommended Posts

Founded to meet the new technical and operational challenges of the communications industry when the U.S. government mandated local number portability in 1996, NeuStar has evolved to create customer-responsive technologies that deliver a broad range of essential clearinghouse capabilities for service providers. Our clearinghouse enables delivery of traditional services more efficiently and deployment of new services more rapidly than ever before.


NeuStar's Ultra Services provide solutions to organizations that rely on DNS for their critical business processes, applications and services, delivering superior security, reliability and performance. With the growth in e-commerce and the emergence of advanced DNS-based communication services, organizations can no longer rely on traditional approaches to DNS.


NeuStar's Ultra Services offer a range of global and local DNS solutions – both managed services and custom infrastructure – built on the unique Directory Services Platform and proprietary, patented technologies. With thousands of enterprise, service provider and TLD infrastructure customers, NeuStar Ultra Services power the resolution of over 15 million domains around the world.




Jamie Lewis, an engineer for UltraDns stated that Godaddy maximum of six nodes


David Chase thought Godaddy uses only 2 or 3 nodes. Godaddy' service can fail. It did last year.


Ultra DNS provides its customers with access to 14 nodes


Here are two examples of its caliber of customers.
