Happy New Year! As 2013 draws to a close, we would like to express our gratitude for your ongoing support.

We've experienced an extraordinary year of growth, both in our customer base and our newly enhanced features. Our team has worked diligently to improve upon existing services to make DNSimple more efficient, convenient and reliable. We would like to take a moment to share some of the improvements made throughout the year:

  • We are thrilled to share that ALL our customers now have Anycast - at no additional charge. With the new Anycast network we have more than 1,000 times the capacity as before as well as much faster look-up times and greater stability.
  • Customers can now submit new services for inclusion in the DNSimple one-click services with a pull request. This change has made deploying domains even simpler. Additional detail can be viewed online at the aetrion/dnsimple-services repository.
  • Our developer and support documentation has been improved and extended, making it easier to find answers about DNS and domains.

2013 has not been without challenges. We were hit by two Denial of Service attacks during the year. We cannot thank you enough for your continued patience and loyalty. We are working to develop solutions to prevent such disruptions in the future. This remains one of our top priorities and our move to Anycast is just one of many approaches we are exploring.

One final housekeeping note: January 31st, 2014 we will be updating our Terms of Use. The new Terms of Use is available at dnsimple.com/terms. We are changing how we will notify customers for future updates, switching to in-app notification instead of email.

As always, if you have any questions please feel free to send us a message at support@dnsimple.com. We're here to help.

Best wishes for a prosperous 2014!

Anthony, Darrin & Simone
