Simple redundancy strategy.

By adding DNSimple as a Secondary DNS provider, you can improve the redundancy and resilience of your DNS zones hosted with any other third-party DNS service.

All companies should include a secondary DNS solution, because everyone's looking for the same thing when it comes to running their online presence: 100% uptime. Using multiple DNS providers helps ensure your services stay online.
