    Hello. I'm running my websites for spanish audience and I would like to get recommendations for DNS providers in Europe since my actual DNS are in the USA so I want to optimize the queries.

    Can you recommend me a good provider?

    CloudFlare - They have hubs all over the world. If your visitors are in Europe, they will be routed through Europe.

    Do you think the DNS performance will be noticeable switching from Namecheap dns servers to DNSMadeEasy? I have created an account and the nameservers listed are in the USA.


    First query using NC servers: ~233 ms.
    First query using DME servers: ~ 73ms.

    CloudFlare also doubles as a CDN which is trivially easy to use. Just need to make sure to use aggressive caching (so it uses ?bah as part of the cache key) and NOT use rocketloader.

    You do however need to have the webserver setup to convert the proxy IP's into real IPs.

    I'm using Cloudflare as DNS only.
    Don't have plan to enable CDN :)
