SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BRS Media, a diverse and growing media e-commerce firm that assists traditional and interactive media companies build and brand on the power of the Internet, today announced that dotFM, the .FM Top-Level Domain Registry, has entirely revamped the TLDs Domain Name System (DNS) to offer Duplex (Dual) Anycast featuring a significant increase in DNS nodes worldwide, full IPv6 compliance and complete deployment of Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC).
The .FM TLD now offers an expanded Dual Anycast DNS Network from both our backend Registry Platform CentralNic and the largest authoritative DNS service network in the world, Packet Clearing House (PHC), creating a robust complementing solution. In Addition to dramatically increasing the network nodes worldwide from 30 to over 330 across 6 continents, the .FM has now fully deployed DNSSEC to allow registrants to digitally sign information they put into the Domain Name System.
“This is one of the most significant DNS upgrades in the 25 year history of the .FM TLD,” remarked George T. Bundy, Chairman & CEO of BRS Media Inc. "The duplex anycast offers an immediate and notable increase in points of presence worldwide resulting in a much quicker response time. The DNSSEC deployment is significant because it means that users everywhere can have increased trust in the responses to DNS lookups.” Bundy added, “The traffic growth over the past few years has been incredible. In 2020 the overall Year-Over-Year growth was 41% and a record 39.6 Billion queries. This DNS upgrade lays the foundation for the continued success of the .FM TLD for years to come.”
Today, the .FM TLD is one of the best recognized and most successful rebranded Top-Level Domain in the history of the Internet and represents some of the most innovative brands in Broadcasting, Podcasting, Streaming and Social entertainment. The comprehensive portfolio of registrants not only includes broadcasters, Internet radio, podcasters, and the music community but also interactive companies, premier social media ventures, and streaming entrepreneurs worldwide.
