Typically, each server in the world has a single IP address; this concept is called unicast. The farther a server is removed from the requesting computer, the greater the latency, i.e. the delay before the response arrives. Anycast addresses this problem by requesting servers with identical content and the same IP address in different geographical zones around the world to provide the shortest response times possible.
From the user's point of view, there is no difference between anycast and unicast. A user types "www.google.com" in the address bar of a browser and receives a Google search box in a split second. That the content comes from another server goes unnoticed. The main advantages of anycast are the shorter access times by using the optimal route and load distribution. Another aspect is the increased reliability through site redundancy as well as protection against attacks on a particular IP address, because these attacks can be deliberately diverted.
We offer the best protection against all kinds of internet attacks. Attackers don't stand a chance against our global array of anycast addresses. We always determine the best route for you and make unpleasant downtime a thing of the past.
