Miss Group now offers customers the opportunity to secure their domain with premium DNS.

Name ISP (a subsidiary of Miss Group) and Excedo Digital Management have collaborated for ten years. To strengthen the partnership, Excedo’s global DNS service – Excedo Premium Anycast DNS – will now be available by just a click at Name ISP. It will also be available for the other brands that are part of Miss Group.

“Now, customers can secure their domains by simply placing an order for an upgrade directly in our control panel,” says Frei Leufven, CTO of Name ISP.

Excedo Digital Management Services (a subsidiary of Excedo Networks AB) started a collaboration with NameISP.com in 2008. Both companies are technology organizations with specialists that place high demands on both security and operation, and they complement each other well.

Excedo Networks AB is an Internet service provider focused on data security and data communications, where Excedo Digital Management Services works to provide digital services and the entire value chain in digital presence and identity.

Name ISP are domain experts which goes hand in hand with data security and data communication, to work optimally. Frei Leufven believes that the cooperation between the two companies is more important now than ever before.

“The security requirements have increased, and the more domains we handle, the more we end up in a position where we have a responsibility of a socially critical function. We have had to raise the bar for secure DNS and that’s why we chose to turn to Excedo for a deeper cooperation“ says Frei Leufven.

Safe premium service one click away
Name ISP is one of Sweden’s largest domain registrars and most known for their domain registration services. They are a certified registrar of TLD’s and manage all domains under the same roof whether it’s .se or .com, or something else. The enhanced collaboration now leads to the ability of Miss Group’s customers to access Excedo’s premium service, through Name ISP. The Excedo Premium Anycast DNS service is one of the strongest in the market today, and is used by customers in, for example, public administration and municipalities. By clicking in the Control Panel of Name ISP, customers receive an upgrade that secures their domains, while low price prints are promised.

“It is now a lot easier for customers to upgrade, and to buy a secure and safe service beyond the usual. Most people know that they need to upgrade, due to the increasing security requirements, but they assume that a DNS re-delegation can lead to downtime. With our integration, the order is really easy, and Excedo’s DNS experts take care of everything behind the scenes without any disturbances,“ Frei Leufven continues.

Upgrade as an insurance
As long as a website or intranet works properly, it’s all peace and joy. It’s when there is a crisis or something unpredictable happens that you notice how good your system is. Frei Leufven believes that for customers, an upgrading of the system is like signing an insurance policy.

As a customer, you have to understand that you need to upgrade, even if everything works today. Because when an accident occurs, you want everything to be resolved quickly and easily,” says Frei Leufven.

The collaboration between Excedo Digital Management Services and NameISP.com will make it easier for our customers to
upgrade their systems, ensuring that everything is safe. Michael Duffy, CEO of Excedo, looks forward to the continued cooperation.

”Name ISP is the leading provider of domain-related services through its ability to easily register TLD’s from all over the world. Through expanded collaboration, Name ISP’s customers gain access to Excedo Premium Anycast DNS service with 100% SLA and access to DNS expertise in the area. If you run a business critical company, Name ISP’s customers get an opportunity by upgrading from a Standard DNS to Excedo Premium Anycast DNS service,“ Michael Duffy concludes.

The offer includes:
1) Access to a global DNS service, with 57 POPs globally across all continents.
2) 100% SLA on name resolution, always available.
3) Extreme redundancy distributed over several autonomous systems.
4) Access to experts and specialists in DNS.
5) Surveillance 24/7/365.
6) Everything integrated into the same control panel.
7) A low price for a strong service (99 SEK).
