Here are some other features customers will love:

  • Security: Dyn has security measures against threats and attackers, in addition to protection against disaster. Dyn will protect your site against hacking to ensure your business can continue moving forward. Additionally, because Dyn outsources DNS, naturally disasters will not affect your site.

Dyn team of dedicated professionals take the guess work out of complicated issues and provide meaningful, effective solutions to ensure you can get your sites up and running in no time.

The Bad

  • Customer service

Customer service could be better. The lack of response and helpfulness has drawn the ire of customers. Questions of billing have been a hassle, and agents are not always able to resolve concerns. The company also charges $50 for 30 minutes of support.

The Bottom Line

Indeed, there are concerns with Dyn, but if you are willing to look past them and focus solely on the product and the end result of your experience, you will be happy with what Dyn provides. With the pricing, ease of use and top-notch performance and reliability your website will have, Dyn is an excellent choice for your DNS needs.

Ten years ago it used to be a good value. Now, a simple DNS hosting package costs 10x what it would cost you at 100 different providers. Regardless of their hosting method/protocols, it was easy for me to find other provided with speed equal to or better. Don’t waste your money here.
