They provide managed DNS across 7 nodes that include the US and the UK. Their primary value proposition is security and they run on BIND that routes traffic using round robin.

Additional Services:

Pricing:

Pricing is usage based on a per year basis. The cost per domain and queries goes down with the more you add to your package. For example, if you had between 1-5 domains, your cost will be $8.95 per domain per year. If you have 26-100 domains, its $4.00 per domain per year. You initially get 5 million queries per month, but you will pay overages for exceeding this amount. 1 million over is $5.50, 5 million over is $26, and 10 million over is $48. See their website for all pricing details.

    I was recommended this company through a previous coworker and they seem to be pretty good so far. I just wish they had some sort of auto failover service. Managing my domains and making changes is pretty easy and I like how they have a parking service. Its also comforting to know they have a 100% SLA.

    We use DNS Park quite extensively for handling our DNS and Mail server. We use their “Mail Pathfinder” service which is a MX backup service, as well as spam and virus filtering.

    There have unfortunately been many outages on their mail service, and frustratingly their ticket system doesn’t work very well. Although to their credit, they do reply in a timely manner and they do fix the issue.

    For DNS services that aren’t mail related, I have had no problems and I would recommend them.

    I have used the free service thru them for years without ever having issues. They reduced the free to 10 records, which was reasonable. I needed to increase my needs and reliability and moved to their $14.95/year plan. Since then it has become very unreliably and they keep billing my credit card every month for the $14.95 I have tried several time to confront them on the reliability and cost and they will not return a billing call or respond to emails.

    I have now decided to take my service to another company that may be more reliable and ethical.

    They’ve activated our dns hosting + rescue (5 nameservers) registration after 12 hours and 12 hours later they’ve terminated our account without prior notice or any explanation at all. Worse than that they’ve left the SOA record on their servers – with no means for us to delete it! – slowing down the propagation of the new DNS delegation. Way to go, dude…

    Been with them for years without a lot of issues. Tried to purchase additional services and my order was ‘pending’ for about three weeks. Meanwhile, I got my credit card statement and had been charged for the services. Eventually clicked the button to cancel the order and have to see if I actually get credited for the purchase.
    There are better options out there.

    I spent a few weeks researching these guys and sending questions by email. They were very helpful so I decided to give them a go. I just opened an account yesterday and everything went smoothly. The design of the web site is very simple and not cluttered with features that you are unlikely to use. I got so sick of Dyn that I had to find an alternative. I’m hopeful that DNS Park are the ones.

    I’ve used them for years without issue however if tech support is ever needed, buyer beware. Of course, you can purchase premium support but they seem to force that on you by taking 24 hrs to respond via email only. Unless it’s a quick yes or no answer, it can take several days to accomplish what could’ve been done in a few minutes.

    This is probably the worst DNS service out there. There support is garbage. There uptime is terrible. Pretty much avoid these guys like the plague. They delete tickets without so much as a response. If you get a response it is months later. They had one job!

    I have had DNSPark for about 4 years now. Service has definitely improved during that time in terms of how the website is configured etc. They appear to have matured. We have not seen any DNS outage during that time so from that perspective they are managing it well. Very cost effective, good DNS response time. We have no complaints. I give the website 4 out of 5 marks because they could do more to improve navigation and help text etc. But overall it is working very well. Have 5 domains hosted.
