DNS Cache

DNS resolution is a very important part in Internet surfing. Whenever a request is made the proxy has to resolve the address of the web server. This incurs latency. Hence to reduce this latency, SafeSquid® maintains DNS cache, wherein it stores all resolved DNS addresses. When another
request is made for the same web site, SafeSquid® can easily get the address from the DNS cache. These entries remain in the DNS Cache for 360 seconds, and then it is refreshed, i.e. after 360 seconds, Proxy has to resolve DNS again.
