Unlike traditional one to one IP address to one server setup. Anycast allows for one anycast IP to multiple servers configuration setup. Which means we can setup servers across different continents and direct traffic based on the geo-location.
By setting our DNS cluster using Anycast IPs, it allows for quick DNS resolution based on the visitor's geographical location.
In order the domain to be activated under your Anycast DNS Hosting service, you will need to update the nameservers for the domain to point to designated nameservers for the service.
DDNS (Dynamic DNS) is useful for people with non-static IP address. This is common among home internet service.
With the DDNS (Dynamic DNS) API, you will be able to update the A record of a domain without having to log into our system. You simply just need to open the API URL with either your browser or use a automated system cronjob/service to call the API.
The web direction feature allows you to create a URL on your domain and forward it to an external URL without having to setup a webserver.
For example you can set, http://yourdomain.com/hello-page -> http://mydomin.net/hello
The Email Catch-all feature is intended to "catch" any emails that are mis-addressed. For example, if you have a email forwarding setup as [email protected], but the sender mistakenly had sent an email to [email protected]. The catch-all will "catch" the mistyped email and forward it to the set address.
