"¿Qué es Google Cloud DNS?"

What do you like best?

Lo que más me gusta de Google Cloud DNS, es la velocidad de respuesta a la hora de realizar peticiones al servidor.Al visitar una página web no solo se genera una única petición DNS, sino que dependiendo de los contenidos a los que estemos accediendo pueden ser muchas las solicitudes de resolución de direcciones IP. Esto último, hace que el tiempo de acceso se incremente si el servidor DNS es lento, está saturado por peticiones, o es incapaz por sí mismo de resolver dicha petición reenviándola a otro equipo... Estos servidores DNS están especialmente optimizados para protegerte frente al phishing, malware y todo tipo de las amenazas para tu seguridad o la privacidad de tus datos.

What do you dislike?

Lo que más disgusta, es que ya hay servidores DNS gratuitos de mayor velocidad, privacidad y seguridad respecto al malware, phishing...

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Gratuito, seguro, velocidad de respuestas rápidas en comparación con otros servidores DNS. Competencia directa con Cloudflare DNS...

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Los problemas que resuelve, es el ahorro de dinero, ya que nos permite no tener servidores DNS privados, la privacidad que la empresa necesita, la velocidad de respuestas rápidas... La bajada de los costes de los servidores en mantenimiento que teníamos anteriormente, ya que el tráfico pasa por los servidores de Google Cloud DNS...

"Quick and everywhere!"

What do you like best?

Okay so, I normally use the DNS software my host provides, and just keep my domains hosted and routed all in one place. However, Google Cloud DNS updates much quicker and I inevitably migrated my domains and their DNS over and have been using it for almost 2 years now. It's incredibly accessible because it's Google!

What do you dislike?

The main thing I can point out that I dislike, is the navigation and user-friendliness. You'll notice while looking through settings and features that it's very technical and meant for someone who has a good head on their shoulders for networking (which I thankfully do!).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Promote more, because ya'll doin' the right thing!!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It makes managing DNS very quick and easily accessible. Way quicker than other hosts because Google is better and more interconnected by default!

What Managed DNS Providers solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Simple, quick, and easy to use."

What do you like best?

It is quick and easy to set up a domain and to set the records for the domain. The new/updated records propagate quickly, which is great when switching your domain to a new server with a new IP. The system advises when a record may have potential issue and suggests possible modifications.

What do you dislike?

Adding and editing TXT records is a bit different from standard DNS services and can be a bit confusing to those that may be inexperienced.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Google Cloud DNS is a wonderful and cheap DNS solution should other DNS services that come with domain registration fail.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My company has a domain registered with another company that provides DNS services. No matter how many times I updated the DNS records, no matter how long I waited, the records never propagated. This lead me to search for other alternatives and that's when we turned to Google Cloud DNS. Google Cloud DNS is quick and easy to set up, the records propagate fast, and it's right there with the rest of the Google Cloud Services that we use. Google Cloud DNS has helped speed up server migrations with the quick record propagation and ease of use.

"Google Cloud DNS: High Quality Authoritative DNS Serving"

What do you like best?

I really like the reliability and low-latency access to the infrastructure. In simpler words, access to our Google server or infrastructure is global and we have 100% availability to the Authoritative Name Servers. We also have full control over your DNS settings and these are no longer at the control of any 3rd party registering our domains. This further enhances our IT infrastructure security. Pricing is great furthermore.

What do you dislike?

Lack of dedicated support and intervention. Pricing for support is also really high and not comprehensive: this means that it does not covers all aspect that are sometimes needed for a custom setup.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend without hesitation. Worth using.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A secured website platform with full DNS control for our GPS company.

"Google Cloud DNS: Full Control On Your DNS Records"

What do you like best?

The platform is so user friendly that even a non-IT person can easily find his way through. I love the DNS management features within Google Cloud Console. This provides full control of all features as compared to 3rd party domain registrars who would usually charge additionally for DNS features like DNSSEC.

What do you dislike?

To be honest, at this point I have no negative review. Maybe to provide free support and faster support. Currently support takes a minimum of 24 hours and support staff does not intervene and act directly. Furthermore, support is not provided for 3rd party services who use Google Cloud DNS.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend without hesitation. Outstanding experience. Great pricing. Best services.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google Cloud DNS enabled us to have full control over the security of our IT infrastructure, being connected via domain.

Google DNS is fast and stable. Compared to other DNS servers, I trust Google more because of its huge network. All types of records can be managed with helpful instructions for new admins. Easy IP management especially if you deployed in google cloud.

What do you dislike?

Because of its complexity, the front end interface is slow. Nothing else, everything is good.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All our other DNS solutions are now migrated to Google cloud DNS.
