Customer Success Tips

help-support

At No-IP, we strive to be one of the best in our industry at providing the best support we can to all of our customers. Please follow these No-IP support tips when you have any issues or concerns with our service. Also, have you seen our Guides and FAQs? They’re really cool, honest! A lot of common issues and questions can be answered from these guides.

Contact
The phone lines may be busy at times, so please leave us a voice message and the next available member of our Customer Success Team will call you back as soon as possible. I cannot stress enough that our paid users SHOULD ALWAYS CALL technical support when possible, believe me when I say that your issue is important to us and we can respond the quickest when we’re speaking with you directly.

But What If…
You don’t have a phone, or you hate talking to people on the phone? In this case, please submit a Support Ticket, it WILL take longer for us to respond to a ticket, but we will get an answer to you as quickly as we can. Tickets are responded to in the order in which they were received.

Please remember to include the following when submitting Support Tickets:

  • Subject Line: Provide either your email address or domain/hostname.
  • Body: Be as descriptive as possible about the issue, what’s occurring, etc. Explain what you have already tried. (Because let’s face it, I know there’s nothing more annoying than someone telling you to try what you have already done.) Also, please include what software is being used in conjunction with your domain/hostname, if any.

What About Email?
Please do not submit support questions via email unless you have one of our Support Technicians direct email addresses. Any messages sent to other addresses will most likely be lost, forever.

We Want to Hear From You!
Have an idea, edit or suggestion for one of our guides? Send an email to press@noip.com and let us know!

Customer Success Closed Wednesday, September 6, 2017

No-IP Customer Support will be closed on Wednesday, September 6, 2017. The entire No-IP team will be participating in a team building exercise. The event will be hosted by Full Access Tahoe. We will be participating in an Amazing Race style event that will consist of different challenges performed by teams on UTV (Utility Task Vehicle) and kayaks.

At No-IP, we believe that giving the team the opportunity to get outside of the office (and our comfort zone), helps us build a stronger relationship. We are excited about the event and will share photos on our Facebook and Instagram, so be sure to follow along.

No-IP Customer Support will resume normal business hours on Thursday, September 7.

 

Reno Tech Company, No-IP, Makes Inc 5000 List 4th Year In a Row

For the 4th year in a row, No-IP, a local Reno tech company, has been awarded a spot on the Inc. 5000 – List of Fastest Growing Private Companies.

At No-IP, we understand it is our customers who help us achieve honors like this. Without all of you, we wouldn’t be here today. We want to thank you for helping our business grow into what it is today.

We rank 20th among companies based in Nevada and 3rd among Reno based companies. 

“Ranking on the Inc 5000 for the 4th consecutive year is a true honor and is proof to the growth we have maintained since starting this company in 1999,” said No-IP CEO, Dan Durrer. “I couldn’t be more proud of the team behind the scenes of No-IP.  Everyone on the team is deeply inspired to do work that delivers results and it shows,” he added.

The No-IP team works extremely hard to continue providing the best Dynamic DNS in the world and making the Inc 5000 confirms we are doing our jobs.

Over the past 4 years, No-IP has seen an 85% increase in revenue and has grown the team to 26 members.

We’d also like to give a shoutout to the other Reno companies that made the list: The Abbi Agency, The Spa & Sauna Co.,  Noble Studios, and Sala Family Dentistry. Congratulations!

You can see our ranking and stats by visiting our Inc. profile page. The entire Inc. 500|5000 list is available on Inc.com

Customize Your Dynamic DNS with Plus Managed DNS

Did you know that with Plus Managed DNS you can easily create hostnames on your very own domain?

Creating hostnames on a custom domain isn’t the only benefit of No-IP Plus Managed DNS, the other benefits include:

- Backed by our robust Anycast Network with 100+ points of presence across the globe
- Dynamic DNS with 100% uptime history
- Supports SSL upgrades – add an SSL certificate to your domain for extra security
- Supports Email upgrades – Want email on your own domain? Get the perfect you@yourdomain.com email for only $9.95 a year
- Need help or have questions? Plus Managed DNS includes Phone and Ticket Support

Another benefit of using Plus Managed DNS over our Free or Enhanced Dynamic DNS services is that your hostname is less likely to get flagged as SPAM on your social media accounts and search engines. Our Enhanced and Free customers share more than 80+ domains, meaning they have to count on millions of other people doing the right thing with their hostnames. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case and certain Free and Enhanced domains get flagged as SPAM. You can read more about why that happens here

No-IP’s Plus Managed DNS works multiple ways. Have a domain with us? Just add our Plus Managed DNS service to it and we do the rest. Have a domain registered somewhere else? That’s okay too! Simply purchase Plus Managed DNS and delegate your domain to our nameservers. If you don’t have a domain but want to add one, purchase Plus with Registration and choose the domain you want. We will register it for you and manage the DNS.

No-IP Hosts First Hackathon – Snotty Ron’s Bakeoff

snotty-ron-snotty-bakeoff-noipcom

After months of planning, we hosted our first ever company-wide Hackathon. The Hackathon named, Snotty Ron’s Bakeoff, was a way for everyone on the No-IP team to step away from their day-to-day responsibilities and get creative. Everyone across the company was encouraged to come up with ideas for a project they would like to work on. Teams were then formed and ideas were brought to life. At the beginning of the month, we kicked off Snotty Ron’s Bakeoff and teams frantically went to work.

Projects ranged from super technical, dev heavy projects, to remodeling a breakout office into a themed office to help cater to how different people work.

For 3 days straight, the teams worked together to turn their ideas into a demo-able product. The teams consisted of people from many different roles across the company; from product managers to analysts to creatives and devs, all of the teams worked together to create a cool project.

On the last day, we held the Snotty Ron’s Bakeoff Award Ceremony. Winners of the first Annual Quarterly Hackathon were awarded a coveted Snotty Ron bobble head.

This event was a huge success and we can’t wait to do it again next quarter. Not sure who Snotty Ron is? Take a moment to meet him.
