Nova53

Welcome to the new DNS Portal for Nova53! Nova53 is a primary and secondary, Anycast DNS service.

What is Anycast DNS?
Anycast is a network design to direct you to the closest node based on the amount of hops between you and the node. This means you will get directed to our nearest node that your ISP is connected to.

What does this allow?
It allows the service to be geographically dispersed while serving a global audience, with low latency and downtime. Anycast allows for low latency resolution times of requests, no matter where the request sourced from.

How is downtime minimized?
In the event that a POP (Point-Of-Presence) fails, the routes will fail over to one of the other, active, healthy POPs. Routes do take some time to update on upstream carriers, but usually within a few minutes or so.

Current Status (does not reflect individual POPs, but overall health of the network)
