Having permeated the business technology stacks of firms across industries and at companies large and small, cloud-based business applications and platforms are no longer a novelty. Yet despite the longstanding availability of cloud-based domain name server (DNS) technology, the strong majority of external (authoritative) DNS deployments — particularly among companies without an eCommerce presence — remain on-premises. What holds firms back from making the leap, and what considerations motivate those that do deploy in the cloud?

In December 2015, Neustar commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the rates at which mid-market and enterprise firms are deploying their external DNS to the cloud, as well as the factors that both encourage and discourage such migrations.
