OpenDNS the Domain Name
System resolution service has announced that it now supports more than
30 million customers worldwide. OpenDNS was launched back in 2006
by David Ulevitch and in just five years has grown into a professional DNS resolution service for consumers and businesses worldwide as an alternative to using their own Internet service provider’s DNS servers.
As well as their Domain Name System
resolution service OpenDNS also provide extra services to
users including phishing filters, domain blocking and typo correction
and blocks malicious sites when users try to access them through the
OpenDNS service. They are also closely involved with helping some ISPs hijacking users keyword searches and redirecting them to affiliate links.
In just 5 years the company has grown from a startup to 30 Million
users and OpenDNS are now looking to grow over the next five years,
retaining the speed and reliability they are well known for.
