Anyone using Bunny DNS?

How is your experience with Bunny DNS? Is it quick like Cloudflare in Asian countries? What is the average DNS Lookup time in different continents?

Thanked by 1pom

    I use Bunny, but don't know how to test DNS lookup time.
    I switched some domains from Cloudflare to Bunny because of too many 522 errors. All gone with Bunny.

    It's been great. Serving >2m queries, Asian based site.

    Don't have data about DNS lookup time unfortunately. What I know is their NS are hosted on Stackpath (ex maxcdn?), and have presence in SG.

  • I have not tested BunnyDNS, but I do more than 100M queries, and CloudDNS is too good as they provide 1000 zone records, Unlimited Queries, Whitelabel and DDoS protection.

    cDNS is not free.

    The plan which I have told is not free. But I do see the free plan.

    And how this free plan in compare to cloudflare or bunny? Not much...

    In the other news - use bunny to avoid censorship as it is with cloudflare, recently.

  • I need to pay $1/mo min for BunnyDNS? (if that's their only product I use)

    We're delighted to say that the basic core DNS will be completely free of charge. For the scriptable DNS, we are aiming to match the traditional pricing of legacy DNS providers with an aim to hit pricing between $0.1 to $0.4 per million queries.

    oh okay, thanks.

    The "upgrade account" being the only clickable element got me confused.

    My "add new zone" option is disabled

  • I'd guess they want you to at least keep a service active, so yes, you'd need to pay the minimum of $1/month if your usage in their service overall doesn't covers the entirety of $1.

    @BunnySpeed might want to confirm this is intended though :)

  • here's their dns pricing

  • Anyone know the advantages of using BunnyDNS vs CloudFlare?

    Free load balancing, geodns, and failover (if you don’t want/need cloudflare proxying)

    I use it for a few less important domains. Looks like it's a minimum charge of $1 per month, even if DNS is free? Still have some free credit but should look into this at some point.

    Tried it for hosting static websites, but setup was more difficult than CF pages and the response time less consistent.

    Yes, you are right. I asked Bunny and they confirmed that I need to pay $1 per month if I have an account with them.

  • Switched from cDNS and till now quite happy.

  • We decided to go with Bunny dns from cloud flare. Reason is CF don't allow you to cname your domain if its in their zone. Second is load balancing in CF is not free. Bunny has latency based and Geo based routing. And the most important part for us was to provide vanity domains for our customers, Cloudflare has a offering called cloud flare for saas where you can provision SSL for custom hostname, but this never worked for us due to our deployment architecture and we dont want to change it. Bunny DNS allowed us to provision unlimited customer hostnames and issue SSL all through their API without any manual intervention. This saves us lot of manual efforts and complexities.

    Another reason was the support. Support doesn't exist for free tier in CF, even if you pay for their addons with free tier, you don't get their staff support. When you work on a critical project how can you depend on community and forums? In bunny, you get a reply in less than 15 minutes, that's standard for all users.

    I mean, if you pay for Cloudflare Pro, I believe you get far better support. I opened a ticket a few hours back and I got a response within 30 minutes (with the Pro plan).

    Bunny.net is technically also a paid product, but it really depends on your use case to justify whether or not Cloudflare Pro or Bunny.net is better :smiley:

  • Do they support usage as secondary DNS (ie I run my own DNS server, and they replicate the records)? I'm currently using DNSMadeEasy and their response times are amazing, but they're relatively expensive.

    No, they don't have features like secondary DNS. NS1 and cloudns have that service, but you need to upgrade your plan in order to use it as secondary DNS.

    I've been using Bunny DNS since the start of August for a few domains and have never been charged the $1 per month. Its the only service I use with them and dont have any of the CDN stuff turned on so perhaps that's why. I did have to top up my account with $5 before it would let me add domains though. I just used a coupon I found on the web to do that so it didn't actually cost me anything.

    I Agree that Cloudflare is far superior in terms of maturity of platform and its community. But being big has its own pros and cons. I also agree that Cloudflare Pro have support. But even than, i need to pay extra for load balancer /location and it will get costly if add more location. Bunny is pay as you go and its dirty cheap. Literally its like free when you are in pre production stage. That's where developers may need support. Also I don't know if cloudflare provide round the clock support including Sunday, but Bunny does. Also their response time never went beyond 15 Minutes.

    Our biggest issue was CF will not allow CNAME for users who are in CF (Means If our application is hosted with CF an our customers are also using CF, they cannot CNAME their domain to ours, for this we need to use their Cloudflare for SaaS. That's the primary reason we decided to go with Bunny.
