DNSmadeeasy vs Some other DNS

I'm really impressed with the ultra low DNS lookup time of DNSME and use them for my VPS setups. I'm thinking of using them for my cPanel hosts. The current provider has a pretty shitty 200ms lookup time vs the 2~5ms DNSME lookup time. Does anybody have any thoughts on this as a strategy. Will I save time with a faster DNS host when the domain points to a slower cPanel server? I'm going to run some tests with some cPanel clients.

Thanked by 1Janevski

  • Why settle for a slow cPanel server?

  • I don't settle - clients do. If it was up to me I wouldn't choose cpanel. But som many clients are dope at stuff.

  • DNS is not going to be your primary issue with these clients. The difference of 20 milliseconds to 200 milliseconds is significant, but really people are used to waiting that first second before the browser responds.

    My suggestion would be just to use whatever you are comfortable with and know you can manage to keep secure.

    That's a pitty. As WSS said, DNS isn't gonna help you much in this case. Optimising those websites will win you more and put as much as possible on a CDN.

    How come Cpanel is so slow btw? I'm using it and it's acceptable in most cases.

    (Don't get me wrong, DNSmE is a great provider.)

    I have used dnsmadeeasy and found it quite fast and it was costly in the long run as my sites used to have lots of query and now we have moved to cloudflare paid

  • At work we're using DNS Made Easy as primary DNS and EasyDNS as secondary, and we're happy with both. The idea was that, in case of a DDoS attack on one provider, the other one would still be available to serve queries. Luckily so far we haven't had to make a real-life test of this scenario.

  • I'm really impressed with the ultra low lookup time of Cloudflare's free DNS hosting service.
