We do not have an endowment, and we are not funded by ‘the government’.
We employ full-time, professional software engineers to maintain the code that you can download for free.
We welcome sponsorships – if you are passionate about Internet security, or privacy, or want to see a new feature implemented, contact us about sponsorship at email@example.com.
- You need viable, production-quality open source
- Open Source lowers barriers for participation on the Internet for everyone. It removes the necessity to ‘reinvent the wheel’ for new entrants.

- BIND refactoring and new feature development
- BIND maintenance releases on 9.9, 9.10 & 9.11 trains
- Development of BIND 9.12, including significant refactoring
