Corporation Service Company, or CSC, has been in business for more than a century. It opened its doors in 1899 and today provides legal, business and financial services for a variety of businesses. Based in Wilmington, Delaware, CSC helps companies with their DNS needs as well.
The company partners with Verisign to provide superior infrastructure to enhance customers' DNS experience.
- Security: CSC is committed to providing highly secure solutions to customers. The company takes great responsibility to protect against the increasing threat of cyber crime or other threats against your site. CSC provides solutions to vigilantly protect your personal data and information.
- Reliability: CSC guarantees 100% uptime 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. With rare exception customers can expect their sites to be up and running constantly, without fail.
- Manageability: The domain-name management platform provides smooth interaction with customers' domain name portfolio. The platform is web-based, easy to use and integrates seamlessly.
- Performance: By using Anycast and Unicast, CSC provides protection against DDoS attacks and other unforeseen incidents. The systems also have fault tolerance and excellent response times.
- Pricing information
If customers want pricing information on DNS services, get ready for a frustrating process. One won't find this information online. Instead, customers have to fill out a form online and wait for a customer service representative to respond. There is no definitive timetable for how long one will wait for a response. Also, prices vary depending on customer selections.
CSC has only operated the DNS line of business since 2013, so experience in this area is lacking. Though the company as a whole has an obvious advantage of a long history, the DNS arm does not. There are still growing pains and learning curves that customers may wish to avoid and would be enticed to seek another provider.
The Bottom Line
CSC is a strong, long-established company that provides a plethora of services and products. It is almost as though is has spread itself too thin, though, leaving the DNS services lacking in some areas such as customer service and variety of DNS service offerings. Customers would do well to consider other companies first.
