Approximately 30,000 Users Now on Board with Deerfield.com’s Domain Naming System
Gaylord, Mich. – Dec. 22, 2000 – Deerfield.com®, a leading provider of Internet optimization and connectivity solutions, today announced it has agreed to acquire DynoDNS, a domain naming service provider. Deerfield.com plans to manage both DynoDNS and DNS2Go, its own domain naming system, thereby increasing the customer base to over 30,000 users within two-months of the initial release.
“With this acquisition, Deerfield.com is further expanding its reach into this diverse market that targets small businesses, SOHO and home users,” said Mike Deerfield, CEO of Deerfield.com. “DynoDNS customers can benefit from Deerfield.com’s personalized customer service and from DNS2Go’s exclusive features, like D2G Galaxies, which allows users to find each other on the Internet based on their area of interest. They’ll also be able to couple DNS2Go with Deerfield.com’s suite of total Internet software solutions – such as our MDaemon® Email server and FTP Serv-U™ a fully featured FTP Server.”
As part of the acquisition agreement, DynoDNS customers have the option of continuing their service with DynoDNS without interruption to their account. Those who switch to DNS2Go can take advantage of a 25% discount toward any of Deerfield.com’s Value Added Services, including Primary Domains.
“Deerfield.com will provide DynoDNS users the highest level of service,” said Andrew Moore, owner of DynoDNS. “They are an established software company, and with DNS2Go, they have the experience necessary to continue offering a valuable service with proper support.”
DNS2Go is a free Internet domain naming system service that simplifies Internet communications and expands peer-to-peer networking possibilities. With DNS2Go, a home user or small business can eliminate the complexities and costs associated with specifying a domain name for hosting their own Web sites, FTP sites, Email servers, Internet games or other applications. DNS2Go solves the problem of dynamic IP addresses by giving users a permanent domain name that has the functionality of a static IP number. Small businesses and consumers can thus name their space on the Internet to host and share websites, photos, audio/video clips, and other files.
