  • Is the 256mb plan the same as the free one was?

  • @djvdorp

    Bandwidth has been increased from 50GB/Mo to 1000GB/Mo

    Anycast DNS is cool, but you need to list the nameservers so we can see if it helps at all. Details on how many pops you have an their locations would help too.

  • @kkmlk

    We have 50+ PoP locations.

    Name servers will be listed in your user panel once you sign up for the service.

  • @stylexnetworks said: We have 50+ PoP locations.

    Care to share these locations ? :D

    i'm not really a fan of onapp.

    anycast seems interesting tho. the pricing seems pretty reasonable.

  • edited July 2012

    Will give this a try. Ordered one :)

    Asked for scan of ID. Please wait, will send it

  • SurgeSurge Member

    @stylexnetworks - that's a lot of pops, but can we have some sample ns hosts / ips, so we can ping them from various locations? Also, is secondary also on anycast?

  • edited July 2012


    Pinging is disabled due to security and DDoS prevention.

    All 4 NS are on AnyCast

  • SurgeSurge Member

    Also, your list has a lot of duplicates:
    {'London GB': 3, 'Los Angeles US': 3, 'Chicago US': 2, 'Istanbul TR': 2, 'Dublin IE': 2, 'Moscow RU': 2, 'Copenhagen DK': 2, ..}

  • edited July 2012


    Correct, there are multiple locations within one country.

    AnyCast: 85 PoPs
    CDN: 57 PoPs

    @stylexnetworks said: Correct, there are multiple locations within one country.

    Um, those are duplicates per city, not sure what's the logic behind that.

    @stylexnetworks said: You can ping the following

    None of them respond to pings. How are we supposed to evaluate if your anycast dns is any good?

    Also, all of ns[1-4] end up having identical traces, which is not a good thing, they are supposed to be on different networks.

    Edit: Anyway, for a free addon everything looks great.

  • edited July 2012


    The closer your servers are located to your users, the less latency they will see at their end. In addition, having sufficient geographical coverage can indirectly improve end-to-end latency. Our DNS is hosted in data centers worldwide, and uses anycast routing to send users to the data center that is the closet geographically.

    Trace results will be identical since the response will always be from the closest server to you geographically.

    The reason for having a secondary dns in the first place is so that if the primary is down (which could be due to network) the secondary can still be contacted. If the routes to both are identical, this redundancy is gone. I understand it's not your fault and just how OnApp set things up.

    The correct setup either uses the secondary w/o anycast or uses disjunct sets of pops for primary and secondary (like some other anycast dns providers do).

    And in this instance the anycast isn't very good anyway - closest pop to Hetzner is about 165ms away for example. Or try tracerouting from Moscow (, you'll get the routing going to France despite two pops in Moscow.

    Anyway, as I said, it is still good enough for a free addon.

    I signed up .. but it seems they require ID verification so I ended up just cancelling... this is actually the first time I have ever been asked for verification, too bad would have like to try out onapp.. but I'm sure not gonna send ID for some company I don't even know!!

  • @earl

    I sincerely apologize however we randomly select orders and request ID verification. This is to prevent fraud and to also protect our customer's privacy.

  • earlearl Member


    Your company your rules.. I understand completely.. but you should mention that you require ID verification so we know ahead of time..

  • @earl

    I sincerely apologize however such information will not be given out to the public prior to singing up. This is standard procedure for majority of companies to prevent fraud. Random orders are selected to go through further verification. At this point the customer has the right to decline to provide any documentation that is requested, however a full refund will be issued.

    Refusing to tell people "some customers will be selected for ID verification" is NOT standard procedure, sorry.

    Also, no, most companies do NOT do random selection, they look at a list of things wrong with the person's order and decide whether or not to require ID.

    Thanked by 1earl
  • edited July 2012


    We do everything in our power to prevent fraud.

    We require ID verification on randomly selected orders and orders that are flagged by our automated system. Such information will not be given out to the customer prior to singing up, this allows us to report fraudulent activities.

    Many companies do not have rigorous fraud prevention policies set in place, we do.

    I apologize if this is an inconvenience for you, however the customer has the right to decline any documentation requested. At this point a full refund will be issued.

    This subject will not be discussed here any further, if you any specific questions or issues you are more than welcome to contact us directly.

  • earlearl Member

    Having to send Goverment issued ID is a bit extreme in opinion.. maybe SMS verification would have been better, I would have done that no problem!!

  • @earl

    This specific feature is already in the process of being implemented.
