Dyn vs Google Cloud DNS: What are the differences?

What is Dyn? Managed DNS, Outsourced DNS & Anycast DNS. An all-in-one Managed DNS service for your registered domain names. Dyn DNS is the perfect solution for your domain name’s DNS needs, whether it is for personal or business use. It gives you complete control over your DNS zone and its associated DNS records, complete with a simple DNS management web interface.

What is Google Cloud DNS? Reliable, resilient, low-latency DNS serving from Google’s worldwide network of Anycast DNS servers. Use Google's infrastructure for production quality, high volume DNS serving. Your users will have reliable, low-latency access to Google's infrastructure from anywhere in the world using our network of Anycast name servers.

Dyn and Google Cloud DNS can be categorized as "DNS Management" tools.

Some of the features offered by Dyn are:

  • Resource Records- 75 records
  • Domains/Zones- 1 Zone (yourdomain.com)
  • DNS Queries per Month- 600,000

On the other hand, Google Cloud DNS provides the following key features:
