Deliver faster, more reliable connections for end-users on the Chinese mainland with Managed DNS for China.

Keeping your end-users in the Chinese mainland reliably connected to your applications, websites, and services comes with a unique set of challenges. Ensuring speed and performance requires an authoritative DNS that’s purpose-built for the region—requiring development that could be a time-consuming, costly and complex challenge for your in-house team.

Managed DNS for China delivers 3x faster connections for users in China’s mainland. Our Nameserver Acceleration capabilities enable you to optimize traffic routing for a superior end-user experience and response times, while taking into account the region’s unique network infrastructure. Managed DNS for China is delivered through the same portal as your other NS1 solutions—now an IBM company—to streamline DNS management for your team. 

Benefits Optimize performance for the Chinese mainland

Manage all public-facing websites, applications and services under one global domain name without the performance problems that often occur when internet traffic attempts to connect with a server outside of China. Our unique Nameserver Acceleration® capabilities help ensure that DNS queries crossing in and out of the region are steered through the optimal endpoint for an excellent user experience.

An application delivery footprint that scales with your business

Scale your digital presence in the Chinese mainland without the cost, time and complexity it would take to build out the required infrastructure to separate traffic at the country level on your own. Our global DNS infrastructure features four unicast points of presence (PoPs) in the region so you can begin to provision DNS services as soon as you subscribe to Managed DNS for China.

One portal for all of NS1 Connect

Control your Managed DNS for China setup from the same portal that you use for your Managed DNS and any other solutions delivered to you by NS1. Our cloud portal features role-based access controls, a robust API, and ecosystem integrations to simplify management of authoritative DNS for your application delivery and networking teams.
