Did you know that even Wikipedia runs on PowerDNS software?

"As of early 2005, PowerDNS, in combination with the bind and geo backends, is used by Wikimedia to handle all DNS traffic. By using the geo backend, incoming clients can be redirected to the nearest Wikipedia server (based on their geographic location). This facility provides an effective way of load balancing and it reduces response times for the clients." Source Wikipedia
