DNS service recommendations?
February 1, 2005 11:14 AM   Subscribe

I used to use mydomain.com to handle website and email forwarding. I would just set the DNS to their servers, and set the forwarding to a spot on my server, and it worked perfectly.

I want to be able to manage all my domain forwarding from one account that dosen't charge per domain.

Zonedit should work for what you want to do, and for free.

Just curious, what became the problem with mydomain.com? I think I still have some fallow domain names pointed there.

I switched from mydomain.com to a paid account on dnsmadeeasy.com because of the failover. $30 a year for 150 - 500 domains is awesome.

Awesome, thanks. Basically mydomain.com started doing pop under ads when you get over fifty hits per day.

Zoneedit are superb. It's a kind-of honor system as you are meant to pay for more than five or so 'services' from them (like domain forwarding, backup MX, and so on). However, you *could* just sign up with a new email address. That wouldn't be nice - they run an excellent service and I've not noticed a moment of downtime since I started using them for various things. It's not like they're expensive, anyway. Don't be put off by their basic web site.

Blech. ZoneEdit was not to my liking: sketchyness and hinkyness on how they ran their DNS servers, confirmed by a DNS/unix/sysadmin guru that was working with me. Your mileage will certainly vary.

I much prefer Secondary.com (but I don't think it's exactly what you're looking for).
