Enhanced DNS Performance

The collaboration between CtrlS and PCH will result in faster internet access, reduced latency, and enhanced network performance for millions of users across India. DNS root servers are essential components of the internet's architecture, translating human-readable web addresses into IP addresses. "Without DNS Root Servers, one cannot access any online content or even send an email. The action happens millions of times a day."

Localised DNS Traffic Management

According to CtrlS, the newly established PCH - AS 42 and AS 3856 - are live in CtrlS's Hyderabad 1 data centre. This will enable better management of DNS traffic within the region as well as for India, contributing to overall improved latency and performance.

Expansion Plans

This partnership is not limited to Hyderabad. CtrlS plans to deploy PCH nodes in other key Indian cities such as Noida, Bangalore, Lucknow, and Patna, strengthening digital services across the country.

Global Expertise

According to the statement, over the last 22 years, PCH served over 124 country code top-level domains (ccTLDs), 43 government central civil services (GOV.ccs), 23 military services (MIL.ccs), and select brand top-level domains (.apple, .bmw) with a network spanning 265 data centre locations in 119 countries.

Shared Vision for a Stronger Internet

CtrlS's Chief Business Officer, Royce Thomas, emphasized that this collaboration not only benefits the CtrlS team but also contributes to the growth of India's digital economy. Enhanced DNS services foster a free and open internet, critical for driving India's digital progress.

He added, "This strategic move, doesn't end in Hyderabad. CtrlS is preparing to go live with PCH nodes in Noida (within a week), Bangalore, Lucknow, and Patna. Such deployments strengthen our vision of providing high-quality, robust digital services throughout the country, bringing us closer to creating a truly pan-India network."

Ashish Ahuja, Chief Technology Officer, CtrlS Datacenters, stated, "This will enable us to provide faster, more reliable, and secure internet access to millions of users. We are excited by this development and look forward to expanding our services even further. Hosting DNS at our data centres help us in speeding response time and improved network performance as it reduces the latency between the end-users and the Root Servers."
