About DNSstuff

We'll admit to some bias, but we believe proper set up and management of a company's name and email servers are absolutely essential to the success of its business.

Proper DNS management is no longer a matter of "set it and forget it" anymore. Lack of DNS problem solving skills, increasing budgetary pressures and the number of new threats from both inside and outside an organization require constant monitoring of web and email assets. That's where we come in.

One of the most important elements of proper DNS management is to have an independent view of your web-based connection to the outside world - a view that you absolutely must trust, because you can't always depend on what you see from inside your firewall.

Since 2002, we have been the trusted source for all things DNS by more IT professionals than any other web application in the world. More than 30,000 customers, over 13 million annual visits and tens of millions of tests each year, are proof positive that nobody does it better.

And as use of the Internet for business and communication has exploded, our business has evolved and responded to the need for more tools and more complex forensic analysis of web data. We've added more tests, created monitoring and alerting capabilities, and will soon introduce "workbench" environments that will greatly simplify host, name, IP and email workflows as the need to gain greater insights into the "behavior" of web traffic grows in importance.

We take our leadership role seriously and intend to earn it every year. We're extremely proud to be home to one of the largest communities of IT professionals in the world.
