Anycast for Recursive DNS
By managing every lookup request the end user makes, recursive DNS providers can provide increased security, improved performance, and other services for their end users. Two well-known examples of free, public recursive DNS services are Google’s 188.8.131.52 service and Cloudflare’s 184.108.40.206 service.
Recursive DNS providers can use anycast to improve the speed and reliability of their customers’ Internet browsing experience. By anycasting their infrastructure, these providers can allow all of their customers to configure a single IP address that will reach the geographically closest recursive DNS server, and seamlessly failover to the next closest server in the event of a failure.
