How does this service differ from open dns that has a large user base and has been around for many years now?

Sweet...  Those bullet points need to go into the site FAQ. 

Nice service. Question - any plans to roll in anti-phishing or ways to stop other Internet attacks? Filtering is nice but part of what I love about OpenDNS is the other stuff it offers for a pretty low annual price. 

We could build in default blocks, but that would be down the road and really not in line with our vision... If anything, we would tell people to go whitelist (so nothing unless allowed, would be denied).

$1,500 / year isn't cheap for DNS filtering.

1. blocking - categories aren't always accurate, so we allow white or black list. OpenDNS would never be able to black list Hawaii Gambling houses (too small of a domain).

2. reporting - we email the admin a nightly report of all blocked and allowed domains and in the correct time zone.

3. performance - we don't use anycast, so you know exactly where your request are going vs. letting anycast decide.
