    Hi

    I see some websites use dnsmadeeasy for DNS. Which is the main purpose of this? Is it much better than using own dns??

    I think speed and stability are the main reasons to use such service....

    Speed and reliability and security as DME had DDOS protected network so if someone attacks your nameservers at DME, you'd still be up. So yes like Cloudflare but for DNS. Though Cloudflare for DNS only setups are pretty reliable and fast too DNS - Cloudflare DNS Only Configuration | Centmin Mod Community

    I have a question for this as it is for dns made easy and cloudflare that confuse me :)

    If a user from Italy for example buy a domain from an Italian company and then use Cloudflare or DNS made easy then the requests of the users should go from Italian company (as the user don't transfer the domain there and just point to the nameservers) and then cloudflare take care.... ?

    So the users are going to the origin of the domain and then go to Cloudflare?

    And if a user hit the dns he will hit first the origin of the domain?

    For DNS, the visitor's DNS request hits Cloudflare or DME's closest edge server to Italy for Italian visitors

    Cloudflare does more than DNS it has a CDN proxy cache, so visitor requests also git Cloudflare's closest edge server to Italy for Italian visitors. While DME would git your server origin unless you also use DME's Geo Director (geodns) and have your own closest edge server to Italy.

    That's why centminmod.com site uses Amazon Route53 for DNS and geodns/geo latency dns as I have my own edge VPS centminmod.com cluster for several geographic locations around the world :) DME Geo Directory too expensive at US$660/yr per domain !

    KeyCDN benchmark performance
    centminmod.com cached DNS result over AWS Route53 + geo latency dns setup

    upload_2016-9-19_3-59-50.png

    centmin.sh mirror over Cloudflare DNS + CDN enabled caching cached DNS result

    I confuse you :(

    When a user buy from Italy then the dns request goes to the Italian server and from A record from there to the server :)

    If a user use Cloudflare DNS then the request goes from the user to the Italian company (as he didn't transfer the domain) and from there the Italian company point the request to Cloudflare dns and then cloudflare take care the request..... ?

    it always goes visitor requests hit DNS servers first (whether locally hosted DNS, cloudflare or DME etc) so they know which IP address belongs to domain name. Then DNS directs visitors to the IP returned from DNS look up for domain
