NS1's Global DNS Traffic Report Reveals Public Resolvers Dominate the Internet
NEW YORK, March 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NS1, the leading provider of application traffic solutions, today announced the publication of its “Global DNS Traffic Report,” which reveals timely insights based on analysis of customer traffic patterns. Key findings revealed that public resolvers dominate the internet, accounting for nearly 60% of recursive DNS usage, with telecom giants representing nearly 9%.
The NS1 team used its DNS Insights solution, powered by the open source network observability tool Orb™, to analyze more than 7.5 trillion DNS queries and 15.1 trillion packets over a 90-day period in late 2022. Geographically, 42% of the traffic came from North America and 26% from Europe, with the remainder from Asia and other international locations.
“As one of the largest authoritative DNS providers on the planet, NS1 resolves a significant percentage of the internet’s total traffic, giving our team a unique vantage point for evaluating the health of networks and the technologies involved in delivering global internet traffic,” said Richard Boucher, technical product manager at NS1. “Looking at the substantial amount of data flowing through NS1’s servers, there’s a lot to be learned about how we consume online applications and which technologies deliver internet traffic.”

From the world’s most notable brands to thousands of emerging startups, from applications to websites and online services, the requests resolved through NS1 Managed DNS — an average of more than one million queries per second — reach every corner of the connected world.
