    Free Name Server Providers

    Hi,

    The DNS i get provided with my domain isnt much good to be honest.

    I am wondering if anyone knows of an organisation that can provide a free NameServer service?

    Thanks

    Its to basic

    Also you can leave a blank A record point to a IP. So your forces with:

    Code:
    http://www.example.com

    and you cant use

    Code:
    http://example.com

    Free DNS, Static DNS, Dynamic DNS, URL Redirection, and more from EveryDNS!.

    I've used them for about 4 years, and they've been flawless. Free, but if you want unlimited domains etc... you can donate. I donate regularly anyway, as its a good service.
