Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Dyn Managed DNS

Oracle Dyn Managed DNS is being used for our external DNS management and Active/Fail-over for all our sites used across the entire organization. It allows us to use a cloud-based system for external DNS that was easy to implement and easy to use. The accounts can also be secured by 2FA, though it would also be nice if the Domain Registration account could be secured by 2FA as well.
  • The portal management is very easy to use in comparison to other companies for DNS management.
  • The have expert mode that allows for multiple edits on records and allows you to make notes for each edit on a zone.
  • The have TTLs that are as low as 30 seconds.
  • They used to answer the phone when you called them, now after their purchase by Oracle, you have to leave a message for someone to call you back.
  • Does not integrate with Dyn Domain Registration, so you need to have multiple accounts: one for Domain Registration and one for Dyn Managed DNS.
  • No 2FA on Domain Registration.
  • The service price is very competitive even for SMBs.
  • Every outage costs money, and with Dyn Managed DNS, service uptime is 100%.
  • You will most likely see a return on investment the same year if moving away for your own external managed DNS servers.
Oracle Dyn Managed DNS is much simpler to use and has no ads. Using other companies, you sometimes have pop-up ads and have difficulty getting to the zone and managing the DNS records. Since Dyn Managed DNS is only DNS, you're in, out, done. No time is wasted trying to navigate through the portal.
Before Oracle took over Dyn, when I called support I always got a human to pick up, answer the phone, and always got my issues fixed in one phone call. My first time calling Oracle Dyn, I got an answering machine that said this is now Oracle, please leave a message and someone will get back to you.
This is one of the best managed DNS systems I have used.
Oracle Dyn Managed DNS service is well suited for any company looking for a strong, very reliable external DNS infrastructure that also has support for dynamic records that change regularly.
