My website offline due to goddady dns down!
Time to switch to linode for dns I think.
Wish I'd switched earlier. It's been four hours since it went down and it's still not back up.
It still puzzles me how the whole of godaddy went down for 4 hrs and counting. No resiliency whatsoever?
You can't switch when their website is down, huh?
Lol. indeed. Their website appears to be down but their domain is up with a dummy homepage. So clearly their own dns is still working whether self managed or otherwise!
* updates literally ten times faster
The DNS control UI is more sensibly laid out
hasn't gone down twice per year like GoDaddy did
Sends me a free pie every Christmas*
The only downside to Linode's DNS is that, well, they will only point a TLD at a Linode IP. It's perfectly acceptable to point subdomains off-network, though, so the Minecraft and After the Deadline servers on my LAN can face the Internet properly!

Not quite sure I understand this one. You can point your bare domain to any IP - it doesn't nee to be a Linode IP.
Edit: Looking at the UI, initial setup gives you a dropdown of your Linode IPs but it looks like I could probably create a blank record and fill it out however I liked. Good to know, though I just this week rolled all my cheapo-server operations into a new Linode 512
100 entries seems like a lot, except I need a lot for Sturmkrieg.com, which is the general purpose, non language specific domain name. I also have a corresponding sturmkrieg.com domain alias for each sturmkrieg.cctld. (40k.en.sturmkrieg.com, 40k.sturmkrieg.us,
Most of those websites haven't yet been reestablished since the server move.
