Robust and slick dns/domain provider
 
Hi,

which dns/domain provider would you recommend if you want to use your own domain with Fastmail?

Godaddy and most other services are to big/overloaded. I am looking for a provider like Fastmail (for domain and the dns stuff, so no hosting and other option are necessary).

A simple, robust and slick service.

Cheers,

Jan-Robin

You may be able to point your DNS with your domain registrar to:

◦ns1.messagingengine.com
◦ns2.messagingengine.com

If not or you prefer a different provider, I would recommend dnsmadeeasy.com

My old domain provider just support MX entries. So I am looking for a new domain provider which support full editable ns records for my domain so that Fastmail can fully managed my domain.

Take a look at Namecheap.com

http://www.namecheap.com

I've been using them to host my domain and have been very happy with their service.

Before using namecheap, have a read of: http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en...age+2010&meta=

If DNS uptime is important to you, use a specialist DNS provider such as dnsmadeeasy. They are much more affordable than the other DNS providers.

If you want free, I suggest dns.he.net free DNS from Hurricane Electric.

I also would not recommend Namecheap; however, my bad experiences were more customer service oriented.

But then, I use GoDaddy, which many other users would not recommend. ;)

The few times I've had to contact Name Cheap customer service, they responded in a timely fashion and were helpful.

Godaddy has a bad reputation for customer service and for some people bad service in general.

I would take Name Cheap over Godaddy anytime. I haven't had one problem in 4 years.

Do a Google search for Godaddy/Problems to get an idea.

.

Namecheap does not support the TLD (.de) of my domain.

Any other ideas for a good domain provider?

www.inwx.de

Using them without any problem since 5 years.

The original post refers to a DNS/domain provider. Some of us enjoy the benefits of specialists by having different companies, specializing in each service. A domain name registrar (such as name.com, namecheap.com, dotster, etc,) and a DNS services provider (such as EasyDNS, DNS Made Easy or ZoneEdit, etc.).

I just don't like GoDaddy because its website is so annoying, always trying to sell you some service or add-on.

That said, I alternate between GoDaddy and NameCheap because it's usually cheaper to transfer a domain and get another year than it is to stay with one company and renew it.

That's true.. but you only need to visit the site once a year (or less if you auto-renew or sign-up for multiple years), and if it keeps their prices down, I'm all for it. I pay $19/year for my .CC domain while Namecheap charges $28/year.

I'm using fastmail with INWX - but I don't know exactly why I'm struggling with DNS setup.


Option 1:
First I thought, that I use the Option to host my DNS with fastmail, and INWX is only the registrar. ("Configuring your domain with NS/MX").

But that doesn't work.

Option 2:
I have to write CNAME and TXT records inside the INWX Interface.
"Configuring your domain with MX only"


Why can't I choose Option 1? Did I choose the proper way?

And are these settings ok?

EDIT:
ns1.messagingengine.com / ns2.messagingengine.com are the external Nameservers I setup with inwx

Should that now be ns1.fastmail.com ?
