How does get my anycast IPs?

    Hi @Wiley_Sanders

    The DNS resolution for certain resolvers returns the anycast addresses. It's likely SSL Labs is using one of those resolvers:


    google dns server

    dig +short @

    level3 dns server

    dig +short @


    It's like this because we've found that certain resolvers don't always return the closest POP for a user when they query, but the anycast IPs will do the right thing when we return that for them.
