Manchester-based Dynamic Network Services (News - Alert) -- a managed DNS provider -- has acquired DNS service provider EveryDNS.
In addition to the acquisition agreement, the company also announced the relaunch of its signature home/SMB brand, DynDNS.com.
The company said it believes that these two announcements will “solidify” its commitment to “growth, reliability, outstanding customer service and dedicated response to industry demand.”
Calling the acquisition, an “extremely strategic” and “monumental move” for the company, Jeremy Hitchcock, CEO at Dyn, said that the company aims to be the only authoritative DNS service provider with a DNS solution for everyone, from the home user to the enterprise.
'The acquisition of EveryDNS immediately and significantly expands the number of domains under our trusted watch and helps continue the consolidation in our space,” said Hitchcock.
David Ulevitch founder of EveryDNS, said that his company chose Dyn as the home for all 300,000 EveryDNS users because of the company’s “great customer support and great technology on DynDNS.com and the Dynect Platform.”
“I'm confident the EveryDNS user base will benefit from this acquisition in both the near and long-term and I'm excited to work with Dyn on what will be a very smooth transition,” said Ulevitch.
Additionally, Dyn is re-launching DynDNS.com. Company officials said that DynDNS.com has set the standard for enabling elite geeks to remotely access their desktops and host websites on their home computers.
Kyle York (News - Alert), vice president for sales and marketing, said that the purpose of the re-launch is to make Dyn’s technology accessible to a broader audience, “to let more people see how the technology can be used and to enable our users to connect with one another.”
“We are especially excited that the re-launch of DynDNS.com has arrived just in time to welcome the over 400,000 domains and 300,000 users that EveryDNS supported on its service,” added York.
Dyn indicated that it plans to offer e-mail support to EveryDNS users while migrating domains to its DynDNS Custom DNS service.
