Free DNS provider


Recommended Posts

I have not used dnsdynamic before but they do not look very professional. I do currently use both the free and non-free No-IP services and they have been the best for me in the past two years. I used them both for my home servers through my ISP and for my Colo Servers. Never had any downtime or issues with them. As far as risks there is always the chance your DNS can be hijacked but then again this can be done at user levels too.

I am thinking of using dnsdynamic.org (after having gone to this list). Has anybody ever used them, or have somebody they recommend?

I can't seem to find out who runs the service.

What risks do I face when selecting a DNS provider?

I've used dyndns.org quite a lot in past, never had any issues with them.

When signing up with a DNS service provider, make sure you read their terms and agreements and understand them.

Also find out, what their SLAs (service level agreement) are. If a service goes down, how long will it take for it to be restored?

I would recomend:

dyndns.org good service

zoneedit not free any more :-(

domain.com would only recomend for basic zone entrys.

dns.he.net, you get 50 zones for free. It is currently in beta. See below.
