When a DNS Made Easy user creates an ANAME record, they will enter a fully qualified domain name as a value, just as they would have done if a CNAME record was created. This fully qualified domain name is looked up internally by DNS Made Easy, the resulting A records are mapped and created on DNS Made Easy name servers. DNS Made Easy will constantly monitor the value of the ANAME record, compare to the existing mapping in the ANAME comparison database, and modify the existing records if necessary.

ANAME records were also designed to work in conjunction with the DNS Made Easy Global Traffic Director (GTD) service. When a DNS Made Easy user creates an ANAME record in a non-default region (i.e. US West, US East, Europe, and/or Asia Pacific), the resolution of the fully qualified domain name will be done from systems sourced in that region. All mappings and record creation done with an ANAME record for a specific region will use data collected only from that region. This allows DNS Made Easy customers to provide geographically differentiated responses with ANAME records when used with the Global Traffic Director service.

To the DNS Made Easy user, ANAME records are configured just like CNAME records, however they have improved on the CNAME record type by eliminating the most common restrictions and performance bottlenecks.
