dnsimple worth buying?

dnsimple worth buying?

Basically the title says it all, I'm looking for a fast and reliable DNS hosting, doesn't need to be dnsimple of course.

Please don't suggest Cloudflare as I'm moving away from them!

Comments

  • I'd personally use Cloudflare :)

    Different.

    Why? Have them as your DNS NS, but don't proxy your content through them :)

    Otherwise, Route 53 is a good choice (expensive??)

  • his registrar's probably better than r53 price/performance wise.

  • Yep, i don't see any reason now paying DNS services for lowend vps.

    Of course im not talking about our multi-million dollar website who need reliable DNS services.

    Whats the problem with cloudflare? Now i am with them 2 year with 100% uptime. And this is not for personal usage. For business and works very well. Whats your problem with them?

  • No way cloudflare has 100% uptime, any proof?

    I'm using CF too (my server uptime better than CF dns) and move my dns hosting to dns4pro and rage2

    Depends on were most of your dns queries are from. For global definitely cloudflare. I haven't had any issues in the past year with them for their DNS service. NSOne is good as well, not sure if they still have a free package.

  • I'm using the 5$ tier of DNSimple and don't have anything bad to say about the service. Very good.

    My Github student pack came with a free year's subscription to DNSimple's $5 tier and I must say it is very reliable for my needs. Heck I'd pay for it if it didn't come free.

    I don't see many of you using prometus 30 location anycast for free (5domains). https://dns4.pro. If not cloudns with 20% promo until 31 dec.

  • Have you considered using Rackspace DNS they are providing the service for free and so far it has worked fine on my end.

  • I've got the student pack too and I believe last time I wanted to register with dnsimple they wanted me to pull out my bank card.

    Since there's cloudflare, the computer said no here.

    Why not Cloudflare (not suggesting, just curious)? I'm using it for a portion of my domains and it's pretty solid. As far as I know it's the only free service to offer CNAME on apex domains.

    On my other domains I'm using Route53 (for my Cloudfront sites), and I've used Hurricane Electric free DNS in the past.

    I've heard good things about DNSimple though, so it'll definitely be something to look into.
