Dyn’s Advanced Traffic Management products, including Traffic Director, provide the ability to control DNS responses on a granular/customized geographical ruleset. Part of the rulesets will be the identification of the global regions, countries, or states and provinces that use a specific DNS server group.
You can reference this video on how to set up Traffic Director or follow the direction below.
For a list of the granular/customized geographical rule set options, see Predefined Geographic Groups.
