Dyn DNS - History


Dyn (formerly Dynamic Network Services Inc.) was started in 1998 as a free service. As of 2011 it had over four million users. The company also offers premium DNS and email delivery services for consumers via their DynECT Platform.

The company became a Massachusetts limited liability company on October 24, 2001. In July, 2003, the company reorganized into a Delaware corporation.

In 2006 the company moved to larger premises in Manchester, New Hampshire, and in summer 2011 to 150 Dow St.

The company launched the DynECT Platform in October 2007. As of 2011 it had nearly 1000 enterprise customers using the globally dispersed IP Anycast DNS network and SaaS-based failover, load balancing, geo traffic management and CDN Management services.

In June 2011 the company announced plans to open offices in London, UK and San Francisco, CA.

In November 2011 Dyn reduced the number of free hostnames provided from five to one (but only after signing up for a free trial), except for existing users with active hostnames. Registering for the service involves the purchase of a trial version of Dynamic DNS Pro at no cost, and requires a valid credit card, effectively rendering the service non-anonymous.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    History is the present. That’s why every generation writes it anew. But what most people think of as history is its end product, myth.
    —E.L. (Edgar Lawrence)

    [Men say:] “Don’t you know that we are your natural protectors?” But what is a woman afraid of on a lonely road after dark? The bears and wolves are all gone; there is nothing to be afraid of now but our natural protectors.
    Frances A. Griffin, U.S. suffragist. As quoted in History of Woman Suffrage, vol. 4, ch. 19, by Susan B. Anthony and Ida Husted Harper (1902)

    Every generation rewrites the past. In easy times history is more or less of an ornamental art, but in times of danger we are driven to the written record by a pressing need to find answers to the riddles of today.... In times of change and danger when there is a quicksand of fear under men’s reasoning, a sense of continuity with generations gone before can stretch like a lifeline across the scary present and get us past that idiot delusion of the exceptional Now that blocks good thinking.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)
