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.

Q: Why are you making this change?

The change to no longer offer free hostnames will allow us to invest in our customer support teams, so that we can continue to deliver an exceptional customer experience. Additionally, we have an obligation to have the cleanest network possible. We have seen an increase in abuse issues with free hostnames in recent years, and the most responsible action we could take for our paying customers was to end the service.
