We have found ourselves with many new customers since the announcement that DynDNS would be discontinuing their free dynamic DNS service. Because of this, we would like to take a few moments to talk about what makes No-IP and our services different from our competitors.
First, let’s start at the beginning…
No-IP was founded in 1999 in a college dorm room in California. Flash forward 15 years and we are still growing with over 18 million users worldwide, earning No-IP the title as the world’s largest free dynamic DNS provider. Not only is No-IP touted as the world’s largest free Dynamic DNS provider, but also as the best and most reliable Dynamic DNS provider. The reviews of our company speak for themselves, our customers are our brand advocates; from forums to social media and blog posts, our customers love us and we love our customers!
We are a small company with a large presence. We have recently grown our employee base to 14 full-time employees, with 2 part-time employees in the mix too. We all work hard to give our customers the best user experience that we can. Because we are such a small and tight knit company, we are able to have an awesome company philosophy; work hard, play hard. We enjoy taking breaks to go out to lunch with the entire team and go on company outings with family and friends. Oh and we like to do things like this too… One of our developers got turfed.
But enough about us and back to our awesome dynamic DNS service. It has changed very little over the past 15 years. Most changes have been to the benefit of our customers, including adding new domain choices, more features and hardware to back our extensive network. We are always innovating and improving our services. This includes our most recent release of new versions of both our Windows and Mac Dynamic Update Clients, so our service works on the latest operating systems. We have also expanded into International Payments, making it easier for customers in other countries to checkout in a currency familiar to them. We even accept Bitcoin, how bout them apples?
Although we are mostly known for our dynamic DNS service, we also offer a robust managed DNS service. We are proud of our ever-growing DNS network and the websites it supports. Over the past year, we have added 7 points of presence (POPs) to our extensive Anycast network, bringing our total POPs to 18 with more scheduled to come online in the near future. More server locations mean your website will be up, no matter what part of the world you, your customers, or readers are connecting from.
So, are you making the right choice by choosing No-IP? YES and for that, we thank you for choosing us.
