Where do you host your DNS?

Looking to switch away from Cloudflare for privacy reasons.
Do you host your own DNS server or use a hosted one? And if so, which?

    If you use any provider's DNS you sacrifice your privacy. If you run your own, you will likely sacrifice response time. I'm not sure what is so private about DNS, perhaps unless you don't want to share usage data etc.

    ClouDNS, but looking for a good secondary dns service. The problem: mirroring geodns configs...

  • HE, ns1, Cloudflare

    Once used cloudns but they do not offer dnssec for free accounts. Switched to ns1 then.

    I used to use ClouDNS but I self-host now, using PowerDNS

    Both master and multiple slaves hosted on some small cheap VPS. Using NSD. No DNSSec nonsense. Even the smallest 256 MB (actually even 128 but they are uncommon nowadays) VPSs are more than good enough.

    Right, until you get DDoSed, then you quickly remember how cool Cloudflare was :)

    Won't happen. My servers are configured properly and those scum-heads will use some of the plenty available ones that serve their purposes better.

    Unless you mean they don't abuse them as amplifiers (which won't work) but rather attack them. Well, in that case they'd need to attack all of them, which is ridiculously unlikely too for some reasons I won't elaborate on.

    Well, whatever, I choose that risk any day over being victimized by some CF - which I never found cool in the first place.

    Self-hosted, with NSD. According to dnsperf.com, it performs better than using Linode's DNS service. Used Knot DNS and djbdns previously.

    Looked at ClouDNS several times, but could not see its attraction neither over Linode's DNS nor my self-hosted solution both in terms of cost and performance.

  • My personal domains run on a bunch of self hosted masters/slaves with he.net as slaves.

  • Me, I and myself.

    But for serious stuff, I just use the domain registrar's DNS service.

    It feels like it resolves faster this way, I know this has nothing to support it and probably 100 % not true. But It just feels this way to me :smiley:

    The main downside with BuyVM anycast is that Asia Pacific coverage isn't too good given they only have servers in the US and Europe. Also their network in Europe isn't fantastic (Cogent in Europe isn't that good) but it's totally fine for DNS. I use BuyVM anycast for most of my sites, but I have a few sites where the users are primarily based in Australia, and for those I use VPSes hosted in Australia for the DNS.

  • I‘m using rage4. They have the best GeoDNS imho.

  • he.net, cloudflare

  • tjntjn Member

    +1 for CloudDNS.net - great service.

  • JoeFJoeF Member

    Mine are all self hosted with power DNS.

  • Anyone see a benefit using he.net over Cloudflare for DNS only (besides the outtage a few months ago)?

  • he.net requires your domain to point to them (eg: ns2.he.net) before being able to add a secondary DNS domain. Linode does not require this.

  • I just use google for registration and DNS and use its firebase environment for static site development.

    Stop the insanity - Use firebase, cloudflare workers, oracle cloud, proton vpn and stop spending money

    This is the main reason I host at Dynu. Cloudflare also requires the root domain name to point to them. However, with Dynu, I was able to add sub-domains and configure DNSSEC and other aspects including wildcard separately.

    They are some of my domain names' registrar while for others I just setup their name servers for the domain name.

    1. ClouDNS
    2. Anycast dns by @Cloudcone
    3. Cloudflare

  • Wishosting.com is where I host ours on two vps.

    I use them for all my VPSs

  • cloudflare

  • I have 3 domains for three purposes. Each hosted on different systems.

    Cloudflare - Things I want behind a CDN
    HE - Dyn DNS or origins for CDN
    NS1 - Redundant Services with monitoring, usually served from Cloudflare domain

    I use free tier on all 3 and am super happy with the results.

  • DewlanceVPSDewlanceVPS Member, Provider

    I use my own DNS server. No need to depend on anyone.

    Anyone know of a decent low cost anycast dns service that has geodns capabilities?

    On my server i have a Cyberpanel installation, which comes with a service that you can manage your dns, only you have to create ns servers, which are explained in a starting guide of cyberpanel.

    Hope it helps!

    If ya want to install cyberpanel on your vps, im happy to help you, just DM me.

    CloudFlare, as they support CNAME Flattening.

    Anyone know of others that support it as well?

    EDIT: I can see that dnsmadeeasy supports it - any others?

    I use cloudflare for DNS on approx 2k domains, using their free plan, it makes me anxious, but my account is maybe 10 years old, i think I got introduced to them via lulzsec.

    he.net? They support Alias records, which AFAIK is the same.
