As you probably might felt, my domain was having serious DNS problems for the past week or so. In spite of the problems, I manage to get a large number of visits on a rant post with a smart title “Apple Hardware Sucks” :-)
For a while I was using the free zoneedit service. It worked for a year or so, and I recommended it to all my friends! However, one week ago, the slave NS stoped updating from the master NS. This resulted in all kind of problems when using this domain. I contacted the zoneedit admins and they were quick to anwser, saying that they were aware of the problem and their sysadmins were working on it.3 days passed and the problem persisted. I contacted them again and they told that the sysadmins still didn’t found what is causing the problem. What the *? I quit!
Since I’m using ddclient to update my dynamic IPs, I searched the docs and the first protocol supported was dnspark. Registered, moved my NS, updated the scripts, back online :-)
Bye bye zoneedit, you served me well.
