Today Afilias announced that it has expanded its technology with a new Managed DNS Service to assist organizations with managing Internet traffic for their Web presence.

"For most corporations, DNS is critical, but it is not their core competency. Afilias' Managed DNS service allows organizations to have the peace of mind of relying on an expert to ensure that their Web site never goes down," said John Kane, Vice President of Corporate Services for Afilias.

Afilias Managed DNS leverages Afilias' existing global DNS network that already supports critical pieces of the Internet's infrastructure in its registry services business. An Internet domain registry for eight years, Afilias supports over 14 million domain names across 15 top-level domains, including some of the world's largest domains like .info and .org. This highly secure and proven DNS network is now available on a stand-alone basis at competitive rates, allowing non-registry customers to upgrade to world class service while saving money — a key benefit in the current economic environment.

Afilias' state of the art DNS network ensures security and resiliency through a diverse architecture that no other service provider can replicate. Its multi-layered, tiered design uses multiple hardware and software solutions, multiple bandwidth providers, and is dispersed across numerous geographic locations. The network is further strengthened by supplemental external DNS support that augments Afilias' own resolution systems. Afilias' mesh network currently includes 18 locations across five continents and is designed to defend against cyber-attacks, regardless of the origin.

"Afilias' Managed DNS Services are perfect for organizations that want to ensure 100% uptime of their Web site, are frustrated by the complicated pricing plans of other providers, and who want more control over and transparency into their DNS traffic," added Kane.

Afilias' Managed DNS Service offers customers an industry-leading Web portal to manage their account, a full reporting suite with hundreds of standard near real time reports and graphs, and enhanced security services to prevent account hijacking. Monthly and annual Managed DNS Service plans are available today.
