This thread is an offshoot of a previous conversation about Registrars [webmasterworld.com
], that has morphed slightly into a discussion about DNS.
My initial issue was that when moving my domains from one registrar to another, my sites would go down because the Registrar was also my DNS host. After doing some reading here and elsewhere, I learned that I need to host the DNS separately so that their would be no interruption in service.
Now, I'm hosting the DNS on the same server that my sites are being served from. I don't think this is the ideal, and I was hoping that some of the more experienced webmasters here could advise. Do you use a both a registrar and a DNS host, or are they the same company? Do you host your own DNS, and has that lead to any issues over time?
Many thanks for your replies, and thanks to Webwork for redirecting me here.
