We are pleased to announce that RoboDomain Inc. is now a part of DNSimple!
Simone Carletti, the co-founder of RoboDomain and the creator of the Ruby Whois library, is joining the DNSimple team to help make life even simpler for DNSimple customers. Simone’s software engineering talent and comprehensive knowledge of the domain system will help us grow and improve DNSimple. Simone is also an avid SCUBA diver and instructor which means that exotic tropical islands are the prime choice for future DNSimple team gatherings. As a result of the acquisition, both the RoboWhois and RoboDomain web services are now part of the DNSimple family.
For now the current RoboDomain and RoboWhois services will remain as they are today. We will continue to support and improve these services for the time being. We will be looking for ways to integrate with the DNSimple services to make your experience even better when using RoboDomain and RoboWhois and of course we will keep you up-to-date as we do this.
Simone has already begun contributing to the DNSimple code base, making improvements and cleaning things up. Additionally Simone will work on adding new functionality and answering customer support questions in conjunction with Darrin and I. We think he may even attend a few conferences throughout the year, assuming we can pull him out of the ocean long enough to do so. If you see him along the way remember to say hi!
RoboWhois is a cloud-based web service that provides a RESTful API to access WHOIS records and domain related information with a unified, consistent interface. You can try it for free, or subscribe to one of the pay-as-you go or monthly plans. RoboDomain is a service that helps you keep track of all your domains in one place.
I break things so Simone continues to have plenty to do. I occasionally have useful ideas, like building a domain and DNS provider that doesn't suck.
Configure DNSimple as your secondary DNS provider to improve your domain's availability and redundancy with AXFR zone transfers.
