structure of anycast IP


Anycast can serve as a lower-level substitute for Smart DNS as it operates at the IP level. One of my primary service providers, BuyVM, offers this feature at no cost. Leveraging this technology would enable faster global access speeds. However, BuyVM doesn't have any data centers in Asia at present. Therefore, even if we choose to pursue this approach, it won't be a complete replacement for the Smart DNS project and won't be significantly helpful.

In the future, it may be worthwhile to even consider registering my own entity, which would allow me to have an individual AS number. However, this decision is costly and will depend on how things progress in the future.
