DNS Hosting Provider

:: There have been many cases where crackers attack companies by targeting their DNS (Domain Name System). Makes sense, because usually DNS is the forgotten part of an IT infrastructure, making it an easier target : still uses old software with security holes, use low-end server (incapable of handling DDoS attack), lack of DNSSEC, etc.

I have been using DNS hosting provider since 2004, and enjoyed freedom from problems related to this.

However, this (DNS hosting) is indeed not a very familiar nor popular topic, and many may find problems trying to figure out, which DNS provider to use.

This is a pretty good article on the subject : https://www.keycdn.com/blog/best-free-dns-hosting-providers/

Personally, I've been using ZoneEdit & Namecheap's service for years, with no problem.

The performance is quite good, but be aware that as with other #Cloud services — a DDoS attack may cause a surprisingly hefty bill at the end of the month.

In that case, a fixed-price service (with included anti-DDoS service) may be a better option : https://asia.cloudns.net/ddos-protected-plans/
