Google (GOOG) has announced that it will begin rolling out DNS changes to customers who use Google Cloud DNS, as the company’s DNS service has been plagued with problems since it launched in 2015.
The company made the announcement in a blog post Monday, and the rollout will take effect in late April, according to a blog entry from its cloud-based DNS service.
The service currently uses two DNS servers in New York and Dublin, Ireland, and each of them are configured to use a different prefix for Google Cloud (GC) records.
A company spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment on why it is choosing two different servers.
Google has been working on a new DNS service that will offer faster, more flexible access to DNS data, but it has been unable to launch due to problems with the two main DNS servers, DNS History and the DnsLab cloud-hosting service.
Google had promised a replacement for these servers for its service in May, but the company has not provided any indication as to when the new DNS will be launched.
The DNS changes will be rolled out over time through a new software update, according the blog post, but will require users to enable them.
Google says that the DNS changes are intended to address the issues the company discovered with the DNSLab service, which has been used by over 10 million customers worldwide.
Google also announced the availability of the new version of its DNS server, the Google Cloud Platform DNS server.
This server will be used for Google’s cloud-wide DNS, which is used to run Google’s public DNS servers and search engine.
Google said in a statement that it is working on deploying these new servers in the coming weeks.
This is Google’s second DNS update in less than a month.
Google announced last week that it was rolling out a new version for its DNS service, as well as an updated DNS server for its public DNS service in March.
