Modern web applications benefit from fast DNS responses. DNS response times may still add anywhere from 10s to 100s of milliseconds to your applications overall latency. DNS providers are constantly working to reduce lookup times using technology such as caching and the use of BGP protocols. Even web browser makers like Google have joined in with fast public resolvers and even improvements in web browsers. You may have already heard of this term: pre-fetching. Well we've gone one step further…
