San Francisco (PRWEB) August 16, 2007

OpenDNS, the award-winning DNS provider that makes the Internet safer, faster, smarter and more reliable, today announced Calistoga Ranch, an Auberge Resort, is using OpenDNS instead of the DNS it gets by default from its ISP and keeping all staffers and guests online and safe and helping them easily navigate to resort services online. Calistoga Ranch is the award-winning luxury resort and spa set in a private canyon above Napa Valley. OpenDNS is the world’s-largest, fastest-growing DNS service.

Since making the switch to OpenDNS, Calistoga Ranch has provided staff and guests in its 46 luxury suites with 100 percent Internet uptime, freeing them of annoying Internet outages that take away from the relaxing Napa Valley atmosphere. The resort is also leveraging OpenDNS phishing protection to keep everyone on its network safe from Internet scammers.

“I have witnessed a few successful phishing attempts and want to protect our employees to the best of my ability without bloated add-ons to Internet Explorer,” said Tim Dickson, Manager of IT for Calistoga Ranch. “OpenDNS provides a simple solution to the problem and, on top of that, speeds up the Internet.”
