Internet Performance Company Makes DNS Services Available at Scale

Dyn, the worldwide leader in Internet Performance, today announced the release of Managed DNS for Hosting, a value-added DNS offering to companies that provide cloud-based services, such as hosting services for small-medium businesses and domain registrations. The new product allows companies to provide better service offerings to their clients, at scale. Managed DNS for Hosting brings a high level of reliability and service at a price that fits customers’ needs.

“For many of these hosting companies, DNS is viewed as a necessity rather than a competitive differentiator,” said Scott Hilton, Dyn’s EVP of Products. “As a result, many players in the industry rely on bolt-on offerings that produce less than ideal DNS-products. Managed DNS for Hosting changes this equation, giving hosting customers best-in-class DNS services that fit their specific needs.”

Managed DNS is a service that hosting companies are eager to pass along to their customers. DNS services help companies manage their traffic and are necessary to keep websites up and running. This solution allows hosting companies to focus on core product offerings while leveraging Dyn for best-in-class DNS services. With the Managed DNS for Hosting offering, Dyn’s staff of experts give hosting customers DNS strategy and support, specific to their web properties, at an affordable price.

"Without properly functioning external DNS, Internet-based resources may ‘disappear’ without warning,” said Bob Gill, Gartner Analyst. “For enterprises with Web and cloud-based applications and content, external DNS solutions offer reliability, performance and traffic management beyond that of traditional open source-based solutions*."

Over the past two years, Dyn has worked to build a new DNS architecture that can provide DNS services for this new kind of customer. Dyn already works with leading companies like Armor, Twitter and Hershey’s to manage their DNS, and have modified their Managed DNS service to fit the business needs of hosting companies.

"You rarely find many technology partners that perfectly align with internal business and security priorities,” said Armor CSO Jeff Schilling. “But Dyn has demonstrated, time and time again, that their core strategies are a natural fit to help protect and empower Armor customers.”

Managed DNS for Hosting provides the same fast, reliable service that all Dyn customers enjoy, but catered to accommodate a high number of low-traffic domains and priced to fit the business needs of these hosting companies.

Radix FZC, the largest nTLD registry in Asia, also uses Dyn’s Managed DNS for Hosting. Said Priyanka Damwani, Manager, Channel Marketing at Radix, “We have hundreds of thousands of domains that are dependent on Dyn. Adding them on as our secondary DNS provider was seamless, and Dyn’s support has been excellent. Overall, it just made sense for us from both a technical and commercial perspective, and has been an awesome experience.”
