Key Features:


Monitoring and Failover

Helps you avoid outages by routing users around slow or inoperable sites. The service monitors websites or Internet services using a variety of protocols, including DNS, Ping (ICMP) and SMTP, to determine system health and provide a back-up response when the primary service is unavailable.



Enhances user experience by reducing latency and increasing uptime. Geo-Location globally directs Internet traffic among worldwide data centers, CDNs or cloud platform providers and also delivers a DNS response based on the recursive resolver’s geographic location. The service also enables the delivery of location-specific content.


Weighted Load Balancing

Enables you to optimize infrastructure usage by balancing end-user traffic among multiple data centers according to the weights specified. Once activated, the service responds with different authoritative DNS responses each time a particular query is received.


Custom Scripting

Allows you to develop customized scripts utilizing the Lua scripting language for unlimited, unique traffic patterns. Choose from Verisign’s library of pre-developed templates or create your own based on your specific business needs. Custom scripting is available exclusively with Verisign’s upgraded service: Dynamic Traffic Management.
