Re: Weird DNS issues for domains
Yeah, yeah, that is overrated. If my site goes dark and my DNS goes down it doesn't really matter as the bandwidth and the web server will also be down. Having a live DNS server in another part of the country won't help if the access routers handling the traffic for the T1 to the school is also down.I just tested it from a Verizon DSL host and it worked. You might want to consider reading RFC 2182 though, particularly the part about geographically diverse nameservers.
Geographically diverse name servers sounds great in theory but for this application it won't gain any redundancy.
