Free DNS Servers (Techy stuff)
(I have not checked these sites yet. I tried to use free DNS
services but they were up and down. One day I'll experiment more. However,
here is some sites to look at.)
- http://www.realdns.com - ???
- http://www.ns1.com - ???
- http://www.granitecanyon.com - I had
problems. May I was doing something wrong.
- http://www.capibara.com/mapme.html -
free Domain Mapper.
- Comments from Bill, a site visitor - I've successfully used both "realdns.com"
and "capibara.com" - both took a while to get working properly, but they do
work. "Realdns.com" just needs to be registered with domain provider and a
couple days later should be working fine - took almost 2 weeks for capabara to manually
review my page, but since the price is free I've got no complaints! Another one I've used
that might be interesting to you - half price domains from totalnic.net
and free domains from eu.org - both work well.
