All DNS providers are tested every minute from 200+ locations around the world
Only IPv4 is used
A 1 second timeout is set. If a query takes longer, its marked as timeout
The data is updated once per hour. Contact us if you need real-time data
"Raw Performance" is the speed when quering each nameserver directly
"Resolver Simulation" simulates the algorithm of public DNS resolvers and shows the performance from the resolver's point of view
"Uptime" shows the real uptime of DNS provider. A provider is marked as down only if all nameservers go down at the same time. (in the select location)
"Quality" shows the uptime of nameservers. For example if a provider has 4 NS and 1 fails then quality is 75% for that location and benchmark. This means even though the provider is marked as down a real user could still get an answer thanks to the round robin algorithm used by DNS. "Quality" does not represent the real uptime of a provider
