As we close out 2012, I'd like to take a moment to reflect a bit on the year that is about to end.

We started the year with just over 2000 customers, and ended the year with more than 5000. We have just shy of 40,000 domains in our system, 15,000 of which are registered domains.

Midway through the year we acquired RoboDomain, Inc. and along with their technology, which we're starting to integrate (the new weekly expiration notifications are an example of this), we also got the talented and humorous Simone Carletti (@weppos on Twitter) to join our team. Simone has spent quite a bit of time improving the core application code while at the same time introducing new features and fixing various bugs.

Darrin joined DNSimple full time in November, which means that there are two people working full-time on DNSimple. Darrin has been hard at work at something new for 2013, but I'll let him tell you about that when he's ready.

This year we launched support for several new ccTLDs, we added two-factor authentication with Authy, we rewrote our API documentation, added domain list pagination and made lots of little improvements along the way.

All-in-all, we are very pleased with what we've accomplished this year. More than anything else, we're thrilled by the support we've had from all of you. The positive tweets throughout the year have made us smile and occasionally laugh out loud. Thank you for trusting us with your DNS, and we are looking forward to delivering more in 2013.
