CoreDNS vs Dyn: What are the differences?

Developers describe CoreDNS as "DNS and Service Discovery". CoreDNS is a DNS server. It is written in Go. It can be used in a multitude of environments because of its flexibility. On the other hand, Dyn is detailed as "Managed DNS, Outsourced DNS & Anycast DNS". An all-in-one Managed DNS service for your registered domain names. Dyn DNS is the perfect solution for your domain name’s DNS needs, whether it is for personal or business use.
