Speed Comparison

Due to time constraints we're currently unable to regularly update this page. However, you can view our public status page where we monitor all of the top provider's global namer servers here powered by Pingdom.

We've also found a few other DNS provider comparison services which regularly post speed rankings. SolveDNS posts average speed comparisons every month. Turbobytes lists average response times bi-weekly for authoritative DNS providers.

All information was taken from Pingdom and is representative of the speeds from 01 May, 2011 to 31 May, 2011. We tested response times from locations in the US, and from locations in Europe. The initial graph shows overall results from all locations; beneath that we've listed providers from fastest to slowest in each region.
