    LIFETIME Members....

    a207e9b2-1f71-43e3-976f-043e1cebcc1c

      I was one of the Early Investors or DYNDNS.org who purchased a lifetime membership to DYN DNS .oRG
      When I logged on I am presented with a VIP badge, plus next to my domain, under Expiry day it always Said "NEVER"
      Recently I logged on, and saw that my Expiry is now 31 May 2020,
      Which means Oracle is not honouring its DYNDNS commitment of lifetime members,

       

      at first I thought this was an administrative error.... so I emailed the support desk and this is their reply,(see below)
      If anyone is willing or has started a class action law suit I'd be willing to join,

      I've had NO communication from Oracle, and it looks like they are trying to sweep this under the carpet,
      Why do huge companies do this... very clearly this should not be allowed... I'm so VERY angry

      AND it looks like they will remove the dynamic updates (not 100% sure) and that's probably why they have increased their fees so much (to chase people away)


      I'm not on social media at all, but whoever is reading this please could you make a remark on social media,

      Hello,

       

      We truly appreciate all the support we received from our early donators, however we are regrettably unable to continue lifetime DNS service as we are discontinuing our Dyn DNS products.  While your service(s) will not carry over to OCI at no cost, you may be surprised by the affordability of OCI DNS which offers unlimited zones starting at only $0.85 per 1M queries for basic DNS.  We hope that you will check it out and consider staying with us.  If you are interested in moving to a new provider, we thank you for the years we shared, and hope that this article on the 10 best free DNS providers will help you: https://www.keycdn.com/blog/best-free-dns-hosting-providers

       

      Prior to May 31, 2020, you will need to migrate your DNS services.  Oracle values your business, and we hope that you will consider our OCI DNS product for its affordability and expanded services.  Below you will find links to our help guides on how to migrate your DNS zones into OCI.  OCI DNS starts at $0.85 per 1M queries with no additional charge per zone. You will never be charged for overages, in OCI DNS you pay only for what you use. 

       

      If you're a Dyn Standard DNS customer, follow the steps documented https://www.oracle.com/corporate/acquisitions/dyn/technologies/migrate-your-services/

       

      Please note that the use of DDNS hostnames is not currently supported at this time. Security is the primary reason for not allowing DDNS Update Clients to connect to the OCI Infrastructure.  If you currently use a device configured specifically for our services, you can continue to use our Remote Access product to keep your hostname updated.  If you are using your own domain and a Dyn configured system, you can opt to use a CNAME in your DNS to point to a Remote Access hostname.  In this respect, your hostname will continue to resolve to the expected IP value.

       

      Please let me know if you have any further questions.
