dns records hosting

Is it possible to have your same DNS records hosted by two different companies.  Say NetworkSolutions.com and Verisign.com for redundancy.


Or is that just not correct to do.

thanks

If you look at the link i posted you http://www.dyndns.org/services/secdns/ it describes exactly what you were looking for as a service based on four servers of different networks.

This means that it is not out of the norm, rather it is pushed toward people such as yourself who simply cannot have any downtime!

Well yes actually, normally they do that anyway you have primary and secondary DNS.

When you register it that is what they will do so that if one falls over then you will be ok, actually i guess they will have mirrored primary and secondary DNS so i would not worry about doing it twice.  You will not need to worry, unless your setting your own DNS servers up then you should make a Primary and Secondary DNS server.

Good luck

Well, the reason I ask this question is ....

We had our dns managed by NetworkSolutions, they migrated their servers and somehow did not move our records to their new servers.  Thus our website and email were down for about a day.  

Now if I had another compnay host the same DNS records also, that should have prevented the downtime.  Right?

thanks

Well yes I guess so,

Thats a bit naughty of them, they should have set the new servers up first especially DNS and then moved any other servers.  Whats that all about.. ?   Very silly people!

Anyway check this out http://www.dyndns.org/services/secdns/ they will do it and as far as I am aware have a very good reputation.

Good luck to you

Does anyone currently use two companies to host the same DNS records?  I do not want to do it if it is totally out of the norm.
