Got an email from David Ulevitch on 12 Jan to all the current EveryDNS subscribers that Dyn Inc has acquired EveryDNS. In the acquisition FAQ, 3) Will the service remain free? While we don’t 100% have the answer to that yet, we will not be making any changes to the service you are currently receiving […]

Google Announced Public DNS, a Domain Name Resolving Service

Tag: , — December 4, 2009 @ 10:39 am Comments 4

Saw the announcement this morning on the bus — Google Public DNS. My immediate reaction (as recorded on twitter) is — I’ll hate to be OpenDNS right now. David U. at OpenDNS quickly responded saying basically “ARGH! OpenDNS is better! Google could be EVIL! But it’s all good for the DNS space”. Well. Let’s compare […]

EveryDNS Python API and Command Shell

Tag: , , , — March 16, 2009 @ 3:26 am Comments 15

Back in August 2006 I wrote a review on EveryDNS. 2 and half years later nothing much has changed — same interface and same functionality, and it is still serving many of my domains. One thing I don’t like about EveryDNS is its lack of API support, i.e. you cannot programatically update your records. This […]

After EveryDNS and EditDNS‘s outage, I have finally got my act together to have this redundant and free DNS running for some of my domains.

Is EditDNS dead? Their website is not responding, nor are their 4 DNS servers. Since the DDoS attack at EveryDNS late last year, I have moved some of my domains to EditDNS, another free DNS provider that I have not yet had a chance to review. It is actually the first complete outage I have […]

Fast Domain Name Resolution with OpenDNS + Local Cache

Domain name resolution is a very important building block of the Internet today. It translates domain/host names into IP addresses, so your browser would know how to reach this page (okay, I know it is more complicated than that, but…) At the same time, a slow or broken DNS system can be very frustrating, even […]

How OpenDNS Saved My Day

Just read the latest post on OpenDNS blog, How OpenDNS saved Caio’s job — Caio from Brazil used OpenDNS when his ISP’s DNS server was down, and was able to complete his job. Similar event happened to me today. No, it did not save my job — it was not work related. Let’s just say […]
