Back in 2011 I switched to PointHQ for DNS because it gave away a lot of cool features for free. Well, that changed last year in November. The folks at PointHQ (now PointDNS) decided to start charging for their service.
Since I had been with them for a while I didn't have to pay full price, in fact it was only going to cost me $30 per year. Well, that is $30 per year more than I wanted to pay, so I've decided to switch to DNSEver which is still FREE!
From their page:
- DNSEver provides quality, efficient and reliable DNS (Domain Name System) service, free of charge, for those who own a domain but do not have a name server or those who have difficulty in building or managing name servers.
- Since the DNS service can be managed from one location even if Domain Registrars are different, it is convenient.
- DNS systems of DNSEver are installed in top-tier data centers. Reliable DNS service is always available since optimum network and server environment are maintained at all times by the best system experts.
- Since servers and system experts to operate the DNS are not needed if DNS service of DNSEver is used, time and cost to manage a domain can be saved.
So long story short, I'm going to save $30 per year by switching to the still free DNS service provided by DNSEver!
