Using Section-hosted DNS allows us to easily validate your application and provide an SSL/TLS certificate to encrypt your application data over HTTPS. No need to purchase your own certificate or manually provide the key information to ensure your site is secure.

Bring everything to your Edge Compute Platform.

Section’s Anycast DNS Hosting is a core feature provided to every user to improve the performance and security of your application. Using DNS hosting within the Edge Compute Platform, you can easily update DNS records and achieve faster application performance by eliminating the need for redirects.

In addition, by giving you the ability to test before deployment and immediately identify issues via log management and real-time metrics, applications using Section cache more content, scale faster, and block more threats than with any other solution.
