A little dissapointing
Service works most of the time. There is NO customer service! Have reported issues more than once...no response. Fortunately problems have been rare.

DYN.com has lost their way
I was with dyn.com for several years and I always wondered why they thought $59.99 was the right price for a domain with DNS and whois secrecy. Their pricing is not in line with the rest of the industry.

I recently transferred out to Namecheap and they are under $10 a year for the same service.

I think most of the providers out there: dyn.com, godaddy, etc are just price gouging their customers. DNS is a very simple service to run and should be free (namecheap has it this way!) and whois secrecy should be very cheap (less than $5).

My last dealing with dyn.com was when I was trying to disable the whois secrecy. I raised a support case with them and they took 2-3 days to get back to me.

In the meantime I managed to figure out that (due to the whois secrecy) my domain contact info was out of date. I updated this and then transferred out. I FINALLY got the e-mail back from dyn.com and they treated me like I had never been a customer. Makes me VERY glad I left! You should at [read more...]

no support whatsoever
Have been trying to get a problem solved for several weeks. Have sent Dyn several emails about problem over the last few weeks. They have not responded once. Not even an automated response that they are aware of the correspondence. NOTHING. Not a peep. This on a paid service will not work.

Overview

About Dyn

Dynamic Network Services, Inc (aka “Dyn” and pronounced dine) is the infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) leader, specializing in both DNS and email delivery for the enterprise client, small business and personal user.

We started in 1998 during the dot-com boom, founded by a couple college kids at WPI. The board room was the cafeteria and business meetings were held on the way to class.

Our tree will always be rooted in IaaS, which began with DNS and a problem (easy access) — one that we wanted to solve. Early adopters and donators pushed us through. We knew customer service was important and made it a cornerstone.

The solution to the problem was called DynDNS.org, a dynamic DNS service for home users to host sites on their home PC and have remote access. It grew. And grew. And grew some more. More donations came in so we could add services. Those grew as well.
It’s Evolution, Baby

As we evolved into a SaaS (software-as-a-service) model, we added a barrage of IT services geared toward the home/small business market. Presidents changed, the economy fluctuated up and down and the Internet became more essential to our everyday lives. We kept on growing.

In 2007, we launched the Dynect Platform (now DynECT Managed DNS) as a nod toward a huge need among our users: enterprise-class managed DNS. We found a sweet spot with start-ups as their stories were similar to ours. It was a risk. We kept on growing.

In 2010, we acquired a few smaller DNS companies and had an eye toward another big IaaS need: email. We offered some solutions but they weren’t robust enough. We purchased a focused email services company and enhanced our offerings to not only compete but lead in the email delivery market – just like we did with DNS.
And The Beat Goes On

We’ve done all this through bringing on passionate people that understand the vision of what we do. We listen to our customers and evolve to what they want us to be. We’ve ran and we’ve fallen down but more than 10 years later, Dyn is still here…and still growing.

But even with over 14 million users, a litany of incredible clients, awesome partners, a global network, offices in the US and UK and the best employees in tech today, we’re not done yet. There are websites that need to stay up, email that needs to get delivered and technology that we have to stay ahead of the curve on.

The next 10 years are going to be a lot of fun. If you’re a client or partner, thanks for being along for the ride. If not, there’s always a home for you at Dyn.

Our mantra of Uptime Is The Bottom Line exists for a reason. From enterprise DNS for major brands to getting yourname.dyndns.org with DynDNS Pro
