Thanks to Dyn, resolving DNS queries is not an area of concern for Zillow's web team. Who Is Zillow? The leading real estate site in the United States, Zillow describes itself as the "marketplace where homeowners, buyers, sellers, renters, real estate agents and mortgage professionals find and share vital information about homes and mortgages." Based in Seattle, WA, and publicly traded, Zillow's revenue has continued to grow in recent years (89 percent increase in 2013 alone), and its quarter-over-quarter site visitor growth is 57 percent. As such, it is not possible to overstate the importance to Zillow of 100 percent website availability and exceptional site performance. In short, their 70 million-plus monthly unique users enjoy insight into the latest real estate listings, mortgage rates, rental information, connections to top professionals, and tons more, either on their desktop, laptop or mobile device. And again, 70 million monthly unique users. That would be the 19th most-populated country in the world, more than the United Kingdom. In a month!
