Incorrect Routing

Why would NextDNS choose London as primary and Dubai as secondary despite Dubai's latency being 10 times less than London?

  • Because dxb is only announced on secondary. This will improve soon.

    • Olivier Poitrey thanks for the reply but what is that supposed to mean? So Dubai will never be primary? 

    • Mujtaba Mir we never use the same PoP in both primary and secondary for redundancy purpose. To have Dubai on both, we need a second PoP in Dubai, which is something that will eventually happen.

      In the meantime, we will try to route you to a closer PoP than London for primary.

  • Olivier Poitrey thanks for the explanation, looking at ping.nextdns.io show there are 2 pops in DXB now but Singapore is still preferred over them. Will this change?
