Building my own Smart DNS server for Netflix. Do I need a super VPS?
I have 2 OpenVZ vps servers with Ramnode that I use to host some websites.
Ramnode is not the cheapest VPS provider but I’m quite happy with their servers due to their uptime, speed and their helpful irc channel. If I had to buy more VPS to host websites I’ll do it with ramnode again.
Now I want to have my own “unblock-us” smart dns server to watch Netflix USA catalogue and I have some questions:
1-If the VPS is only as Smart DNS server (with dockerflix or HAProxy with Bind9). Do I need a VPS as fast as the ones from ramnode or any other cheap option with worst speed would be enough?
2-Can I use the VPS’s where I currently host my websites also as an Smart DNS server? Will it affect too much the loading times of the websites hosted in the VPS?
PS: Just in case someone is interested, this is what I will use: https://github.com/ab77/netflix-proxy
