The traditional DNS analysis is to get the result from the operator’s Local DNS, which is easy to lead the problems of domain name hijacks, domain name analysis errors and cross-network traffic to make inaccessible websites or slow access.
HTTPDNS is a domain name resolution service, which can directly access the server of Baidu AI Cloud CDN through HTTP protocol. As it bypasses the operator’s Local DNS, it can avoid DNS hijacking and obtain real-time and accurate DNS resolution results.
The client initiates a request and accesses Baidu AI Cloud CDN through HTTP(S) protocol to specify the HTTPDNS server, which resolves the domain name based on the secondary DNS nodes all over the world, obtains the domain name resolution results and returns to the client finally.
Activate HTTPDNS service, and for details of activating steps, please see HTTPDNS Opening.
