In late 1998 Monolith, an organization which provided free domain names to the Internet community shutdown leaving thousands of Internet users without the possibility of continuing the use of their domains. Three members of the Monolith middle management who managed the day to day running of support and staff saw this and decided to take action.
Originally they were hoping to continue running the ml.org domain but unfortunately this was not possible. So DHS was formed with the aim of providing the same services as well as new services to the Internet community without going down the same path as Monolith did.
With this aim, DHS has managed to set up all the main services that Monolith provided as well as enhance some of them. These services are now providing over 220,000 users worldwide with domain names.
DHS has plans to expand in the near future and to offer even more enhanced services. Some of these may attract minor charges to assist with cost recovery.
It may not be possible for DHS International to continue providing totally free services but such services will always remain very low cost
