Why We Decided to Stop Offering Free Accounts

For the last 15 years, all of us at Dyn have taken pride in offering a free version of our Dynamic DNS Pro product. What was originally a product built for a small group of users has blossomed into an exciting technology used around the world.

That is why with mixed emotions we announced the end of that free hostname program today, officially turning down on May 7th.

Of course, the big question when these things happens is, "Why?"

Our early donors will be unaffected by this change. We promised that group free services for life as a thanks for their financial commitment, and we will always stand by that promise.

Our free users have been an important part of our early success and for that, we are all extremely grateful. We have offered a discounted rate for those free customers to help ease the transition and experience the differences, which will be significant.

With the end of this era comes the beginning of a new one, and we're excited to see what's next in the ever-changing world of the Internet.
