Many web services utilize Geo DNS as a means of distributing server workloads as well as optimizing network timeouts. Based on the user’s IP address and location, Geo DNS translates the requested URL and routes it to the closest server.
SOAX allows you to specify the exact way to resolve DNS.
The DNS Resolver: Server option enables routing of all DNS requests through our gateway server. This is the fastest DNS resolution option, however, it makes you appear less trustworthy to your target website. This happens because your location does not match the location of the server’s IP address. In this case your activity may be considered as suspicious by the target website.
Example: a user based in Germany is trying to connect to the example.com website. If DNS Resolver is set to Node, GeoDNS will route the user’s request to the target website’s server located in the closest proximity to the proxy node.
If DNS Resolver is set to Server, then, regardless of the proxy’s location, the user’s request will be routed to the target website’s server located in the closest proximity to the SOAX gateway server.
DNS Resolver is set to Node by default. If you need to adjust this setting, contact us via live chat and we will instantly apply the changes.
