We love what we do. That’s why, in an industry that has a reputation of being stuffy, we like to inject a little fun. At conferences, we hand out t-shirts featuring our latest marketing campaigns (DNS Is Sexy or Get Some IaaS) and put on our versions of networking events (DynTinis and Music Meets Tech) that blur the line between networking and hanging out.
The method to all of this madness: you do business with the people you like and we think you’ll like us.
While we don’t take ourselves too seriously, our pride and joy is our network and technology. Dyn has a reputation for being fast and reliable with DNS roots dating back to 2001 when we first launched DynDNS. In 2007, we made the move upstream and began offering our DNS platform to enterprise-level clients. We’ve scaled alongside clients like Twitter, Zappos, Etsy, Homeaway, Pandora and hundreds more.
In 2010, we started offering Email Delivery services. We now have more than 15,000 email senders whose revenue is increasing because more emails are finding their way into the inbox, powered by best practices rather than smoke and mirrors.
While we’ve come a long way, we’re not ready to settle. In fact, we’re constantly preparing for the future. Our labs division is the technical playground for the company’s next great DNS and Email Delivery innovations and service with an overarching question of ‘What’s next?’

We believe a good culture is as important to a company’s infrastructure as DNS and Email Delivery. That is why we started Culture-Con, a traveling road show that deep dives into the role of culture in the business world.
While we don’t claim to have all the answers, we’re qualified to be instigators, especially since we were recently named one of the Most Democratic Workplaces in the World and were inducted into the New Hampshire Hall of Fame as an Employer of Choice.
