DNS hosting, it seems so simple, yet it’s so tricky…
All domain registrars I know of provide the service, but:
- the interface is usually too crude and simplistic (I do want the TXT, SRV, IPv6 support and overall fine-grained control over the zone’s content),
- I want to manage the domains from different registrars in one place,
- I don’t trust them; they’re in the business of making money from registering domains, not providing a reliable DNS service.
Recently, SGH has demanded a copy of the database, and when Piotr refused, they have blocked his access and took over the service, claiming rights to the data. Trust FAIL.
If you’re keeping your domains there, it’s time to find an alternative. Frankly, I don’t know of one at the moment.
