    This system has gotten better and better over time. They have really moved the ball forward and they do not cost very much. I apologize but I like DynECT and UltraDNS the two companies that host Amazon.com’s DNS. However having said that this is an amazing value if you are using junk DNS you might want to think about using this. Uptime is perfect the speed is not very fast but the amount of things you get for the money it is almost as good as NS ONE for value but nothing can beat free right.

    My opinion is if you need Geo IP you are most likely able to pay for something a little bit more powerful like DynECT
