Nominum Narrows Choices with Exit from Sector
[Posted to Random Bytes on October 15, 2002 11:03 AM| Links to this post ]
For this of you that may have missed this tidbit last week, Nominum is getting out of the outsourced DNS service business. In a letter to their customers they state that "Nominum has made a strategic decision to exit the outsourced management business. As part of this strategy we've sold and our GNS customer base to UltraDNS, Inc.". Considering the heritage that Nominum has, I'm glad to see that they are staying involved in the space. While working with Afilias on getting dotINFO launched, I spent a lot of time working with these guys - they had an amazing solution. Its too bad that they couldn't make a go of it. This exit leaves few serious players in the outsourced DNS market - UltraDNS, EasyDNS, Verisign and a few others. UltraDNS might be the media darling, but EasyDNS appears to be the odds-on favorite.I've got my money on Mark and the boys :).
