Owned and operated by Dynect, EasyDNS is a free DNS provider with servers in the States and the Netherlands and with no SLA. They have 4 locations consisting of Washington DC, San Diego, San Jose, and the Netherlands. They utilize TinyDNS for their resolver code and run BGP on some of their servers. They provide a web-based user interface and their customer support is email only. Normal accounts have a 20 domain and 200 record limit with a fixed TTL of 3600. You can donate money to their service and have no such limits and can custom set your TTL per record. They also use donators as beta testers, so you have access to TXT records.

    I’m going to be honest and say that I would not recommend these guys. I used them awhile ago and I can see why its a free service. I ran various trace routes and I could never tell where my queries were going to be routed. I figured most companies these days would have intelligently routing and send queries to closest pop, but guess not. I noticed a lot of latency as well. The management isn’t terrible, but that’s about it. They don’t even have an SLA. Unless you have a couple small websites that don’t require the best performance, I wouldn’t recommend EveryDNS.

    I think Samuel above is confused. Their NS1 and NS2 servers are definitely anycasted. I see queries hitting the east coast, west coast, europe and japan from the servers on traceroute.org

    Anyways, their UI needs an update.

    I migrated DNS for my small handful of websites to EveryDNS this past week, and couldn’t be happier. The website is no-frills, and comes with very little in the way of documentation, but if you already have an understanding of DNS, none of that should be a problem.

    Setup is simple and fast. Changes are updated almost immediately in their cache. I’d recommend EveryDNS to anyone looking for simple DNS hosting.

    Thought they looked good. Initial setup went smoothly. Now 2 weeks later, added a new A record which still has not propagated after 3 days. Sent support request. No reply after 3 days. Where the hell can one find a decent DNS host. This is our third one and so far all have been useless.
