What is a DID?
Direct Inward Dialing for the layman is a phone number. It’s the seven digit (in North America) phone number that you give out to friends, family, customers, clients, and other associates. For businesses, DID technology allows for multiple extensions on a customer’s private branch exchange (PBX) to be reached by individual outside numbers. One or more trunk lines are provided for connection to the customer’s PBX for the allocation of calls. The PBX receives calls through the trunks along with the dialed destination number, enabling it to forward the caller to the proper extension within the organization.

When it comes to either starting a VoIP reseller business or simply just running one, the most commonly requested and needed service are Direct Inward Dialing (DID) phone numbers. Here V1 VoIP explains what DIDs are, why they are needed, and how they can help your VoIP reseller business.

In short, a DID is the actual phone number. These phone numbers can be used in a variety of ways by the end user. Businesses often purchase DIDs in many countries to give a global presence. Toll-free virtual numbers assume all charges incurred by callers within a specific country, extending the service above what a conventional DID can achieve.

In VoIP circles, DIDs act as communication gateways that link traditional phone networks with those operating online. This not only translates calls placed on the PSTN, but also those made over VoIP. DIDs enable call forwarding to landline and smartphone devices.

When using PBX, these systems centralize collections of phone lines under one or more DIDs—sometimes referred to as virtual phone numbers or direct dial in numbers—allowing callers to contact the system’s top level, navigating the different extensions and departments using voice menus and other interactive response features.

DIDs are affordable and readily available online. At V1 VoIP, you can find DID phone numbers as low as $0.15!
