MANCHESTER, N.H., Jan. 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FairPoint Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:FRP), a leading provider of advanced communications technology in northern New England, and Dyn, Inc., a cloud-based Internet performance company, today announced their collaboration on network and authoritative Domain Name System (DNS) services, which will provide webmasters and their end users a faster, safer and more reliable web experience.
Under a newly signed agreement, Dyn will provide FairPoint with Managed Authoritative DNS services that will deliver robust domain name resolution for FairPoint’s customers who enjoy this managed service today. This service will improve the experience for FairPoint customers who are hosting their domain names through FairPoint by leveraging Dyn’s robust global infrastructure to provide lower latency and faster, more reliable access to their online content and applications.
“We are excited to begin a working relationship with Dyn, who will help us transition our internal DNS to their global, cloud-based DNS platform to further harden the service we provide our customers,” said John Lunny, FairPoint Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. “Dyn is a global leader in authoritative DNS, which is part of their world class Internet performance platform, and we are looking forward to working with them more closely.”
Dyn also has agreed to begin using FairPoint’s network, the most expansive and diversely routed fiber network in northern New England, to support their business operations with a symmetrical 500 Mbps Ethernet Dedicated Internet Access (EDIA) circuit.
“FairPoint is the leading provider of advanced communications and Internet services in northern New England, with a strong reputation for innovation, reliability and customer service – attributes that we at Dyn pride ourselves in delivering to our customers,” says Paul Mailhot, Vice President Inside Sales at Dyn. “As leaders in the region, Dyn’s decision to partner with FairPoint reinforces our commitment to working with best-of-breed companies regionally and around the world.”
This relationship between two regional tech companies comes at a time when Manchester is beginning to be recognized nationally as an emerging hub of innovation.

The Queen City also joined Austin, TX and Charleston, S.C., on a recent Thumbtack report on the best cities for Millennial entrepreneurs. FairPoint also chose Manchester for its second data center due to the Queen City’s supportive infrastructure for businesses and central location.
