Yesterday marked another milestone in OpenDNS’s history; we served our 100 billionth DNS request. I remember how excited we were to serve 1 billion DNS requests in our first month. Compare that to yesterday where we served 1,071,072,782 queries in a single day.

This milestone is also a good time to point out that our DNS service has had zero downtime since the day it launched. We put up a system status website a couple weeks after we launched to show you just how reliable we are.

Or put simply…

OpenDNS System Status: Online!

And growing…

P.S. Some of you have asked what the 100 billionth DNS request was. Since we have five locations and we process stats in large aggregates every few minutes it is hard to tell. If we had to guess, we’re pretty sure it was either for TechCrunch or Digg. ;-)
