For nearly 12 years technology die-hards have used our services to do a ton of very cool things that everyone (not just the super techie) would love to make happen, but may not know how to accomplish. Until now, most of the world outside of our core users and fans probably had no clue the types of solutions Dyn offers. DNS? Dynamic DNS? “What the heck is that?” was the question we’d get over and over again when we’d step outside our intense engineering and hardcore technology circles. We’ve been slowly softening up our messaging and late last week re-launched our consumer brand, DynDNS.com. We’re now presenting use cases first, followed by the tech that helps make it all happen. It will also tie similar users together with the revamped DynDNS Community portion of the site.
The work we have started on our DynDNS.com website has one simple goal… to cast a wider net and reach a larger audience. We need your help.
Back in 2001 we asked our users for monetary donations to keep us afloat. It worked. Within a few short weeks we had tens of thousands of dollars in the bank that supported our efforts and allowed a bunch of college kids to keep working on evolving the DynDNS.com technology and avoid working for ‘the man’. We were even able to add new features that people paid for. Out of that evolution we matured and built a premium managed DNS service, the DynECT Platform, that consumers demanded we deliver.
In 2010 we’re asking you to donate again, but in a different way. Spread the word. We’ve added email services, content filtering, even a VPS service to the mix within the DynDNS.com suite of home/smb IT services. Our corporate/enterprise brand, the DynECT Platform is the fastest growing managed anycast DNS service that runs DNS for some huge domain names online, especially in the Web 2.0, fast scaling space.
Please engage us… we recently brought our DynDNS Ninja Squad (D.N.S. – formerly DynDNS Support) to Twitter. Please utilize the new DynDNS Community Site. Please spread the word wherever else you can and lastly, please continue to support us as best you can because without you, Dyn Inc. would not be where we are today.
Thanks again for everything. Our growth is in your hands.
