All devices connected to the internet, including laptops, smartphones, and servers hosting content for large e-commerce websites, communicate with each other using numerical IP addresses. However, users are not required to remember and enter these lengthy numbers while accessing websites. Instead, they can enter non-technical domain names like random.com and still reach the correct destination.A globally distributed Domain Name System (DNS) service translates typically readable domain names, like www.random.com, into numeric IP addresses like 220.127.116.11 that computers use to establish connections. The internet's DNS system operates similarly to a phone diary, managing the mapping between names and numbers. DNS servers handle name-to-IP address translations, directing users to the correct server when they enter a domain name in their web browser. These requests are called queries. DNS servers are categorized into Primary, Secondary, and Caching DNS Servers.
A primary server is also known as an authoritative server, any administrative activities related to the zone, such as setting up subdomains or similar tasks, are mandatorily carried out on this server. Secondary servers are also known as Backup DNS servers. These servers obtain all their zone files through a zone transfer from the primary server. Several secondary servers can be established for a particular zone depending on fault tolerance, load balancing, and traffic reduction requirements.
Furthermore, a single DNS server can be a secondary server for multiple zones. Caching servers, called caching-only servers, operate solely by providing cached-query services for DNS responses. Unlike other secondary servers that maintain zone files, caching DNS servers initiate queries, store the results in the cache, and then return them to the client that made the query.
The rise in the adoption of IoT, cloud computing, and mobile devices, increasing registrations of domain names, and prioritizing security are a few prominent factors enhancing the global DNS Services market. Hence, numerous IoT and cloud-based companies are enhancing their product offerings by including DNS Services as one of the products. For instance, in October 2022, Microsoft announced the launch of Azure DNS Private Resolver. This service will enable the users in on-premise rectification of DNS names that are organized in Azure DNS private zones. Moreover, DNS queries arising from Azure virtual networks can also be passed on to a specified destination server for resolution.
Additionally, in March 2021, Amazon Web Services introduced Amazon Route 53 Resolver DNS Firewall. This controlled firewall empowers customers to prevent DNS queries made for known hostile domains and permit queries for trusted domains. With DNS Firewall, resources within your Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) can exercise more precise control over their DNS querying behavior.
Cloud computing is one of the critical drivers of the DNS Services market. North America has a market share of more than 30.0% of the total revenue and is a leader in the cloud market. Additionally, it headquarters DNS services companies like Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, Oracle, and more. Hence, North America is a prominent region, among others, for the DNS Services market.
