Hosting BlogDULLES, VA – VeriSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRSN), the trusted provider of Internet infrastructure services for the networked world, today announced it is combining the Domain Name System’s (DNS) two primary query routing methods, unicast and anycast, into a single managed service, delivering a hybrid approach that uniquely optimizes the availability and performance of websites, email and Web services. As a cloud-based service leveraging this hybrid approach, Verisign Managed DNS helps optimize performance and reliability of domain name server queries and responses, while relieving companies of the cost and burden of maintaining their own DNS infrastructure.
