We listen

Click here to read about what we're working on right now. Many of our features were inspired by our users. We believe the only way to build a useful product is to listen to the people that actually use it. If you have advice or want to send us a feature request, please add a support ticket and we'll get back to you.

We eat our own dog food

We've been in the DNS business since 2007, as you can read from our history. We have used our own DNS service for our other projects from the beginning. If GeoScaling would go down, all our other websites would go down.. and we have plenty (thankfully this has never happened before). Being powerusers constantly makes us think of ways to make the GeoScaling interface better.

I'm a beginner confused by all this jargon

No need to worry, we've been there also. We know very well that setting up domain names can be a very confusing experience. So we're prepared to be your teachers, free of charge. Just contact us and we'll set up a free online lesson for you by Instant Messenger or Skype. We'll explain all the DNS concepts you need to know in non-technical terms and metaphors, and we'll gradually build up your knowledge. We'll also walk you through the GeoScaling DNS2 interface.
