That's one of the older UltraDNS logos, dating from  quite some years  
ago (I have a nice polo shirt with it embroidered on from when I used  
to work there :) ). I don't recall it being used as a "powered by"  
logo, but A) it's been a long time and B) geektools and ultradns were  
much the same people a little before that point, and there's still a  
fair connection between them, so it may have been a one-off.

I think they've rebranded at least once since then, around the time  
they were bought out by Neustar in late 2006.
