Boyan Peychev of ClouDNS tells us how they provide fast and secure Free DNS Hosting & Premium DNS Hosting with Global Anycast DNS Network.
Tell us about you, your career, and how you founded ClouDNS.
Boyan Peychev: Back in the day, I became passionate and interested in programming as a teenager. So, I developed several online multiplayer games, and one of them actually became very popular in Bulgaria in 2006-2007.
When I was a student, I started my first job in the hosting business several years later. I was a Technical Support Operator in the largest hosting company at this moment in the country.
About a year later, in 2010, I was promoted to head developer in the company. During my tenure, I was interested in the Business to Business services, hosting business, and various niches in this sector.
In the same year, I started working on ClouDNS as a small startup in my free time. Things got serious in 2014 when ClouDNS became my full-time job, and I was fully dedicated to the growth of the company.
At present days, we’re an amazing team, and ClouDNS is one of the well-known Managed DNS providers, with a globally presented Anycast DNS network, offering 24/7 live chat technical support and ever-ready to assist our customers.
