1.13. Chinese local DNS records

International DNS (Domain Name Server) records can take two to three attempts from a browser in China to locate your internet site.

Often the Chinese user stops trying and give up. It does not help that the local ISP often displays their internet site instead of your company website when they cannot find DNS in under 20ms.

The issue is caused by the master Name Service (NS) for domain is reposing too slow from outside China. After two to three attempts the Chinese internet has found your DNS records and all works as normally until the DNS record timeout and the processes starts look over again.
