EASYDNS Description

easyDNS Technologies Inc. or just easyDNS is a Canada-based Internet Service Provider founded in 1998. The company supplies web hosting, email, domain registration and managed Anycast DNS.

The company provides a REST based API to connect to the easyDNS platform, of which the documentation can be found here.

easyDNS has been the center of controversy a few times. Most notably is the aftermath of a confusion between the company and similarly-named EveryDNS. EveryDNS cut WikiLeaks off their DNS service, and easyDNS faced some of the resulting backlash due to mixups of both company names on Twitter. While initially being uninvolved with WikiLeaks, easyDNS now hosts three WikiLeaks domains, as per their request. These domains are wikileaks.org, wikileaks.ch and wikileaks.nl. Find more information on the affair here.

Clients of easyDNS include, or have included PHP, Debian, The Horde Project, Enlightenment, City of Toronto, thestar.com and Torstar, Versature, Sun Life Financial, Zero Hedge and Toronto 2015 Pan Am / Parapan Am Games.

METACDN Description

Melbourne-based MetaCDN was founded in 2011, and offers a multi-CDN solution which leverages the networks of Edgecast, Fastly and Amazon Cloudfront.

In 2015 MetaCDN rebranded their video-on-demand (VOD) and streaming services platform to StreamShark.

MetaCDN offers on-demand bundles in three tiers: Basic, Lite and Pro. Enterprise bundles are available upon request. Customers pay a monthly fee which covers traffic credits, number of sites and a set of features (varies per tier). Not all bundles include multi-CDN.

Former and or currect clients of MetaCDN are Sony, Harvard Business School, City of Melbourne and University of Melbourne.
