DNS forwarding reliability issues with domain registar
Posted on 2009-07-11
Please forgive me for asking a question at the very basics of the internet , but i'm struggling to get a straight answer !
I use a "low cost" very well known domain name regestring company but we have had issues in the past with email forwarding reliability to our ISP's (pop3) and domain issues when using DNS web forwarding to our host's website.
I have been told by a guy in the know that their DNS server is a bit flakey and lacking backup resources.
The question is if i still use them for domain registration, but change the name server settings to our new host's server rather than use DNS forwarding will any trafic go via the domain registration companies servers ?
Is there a better option ? I have 4 core sites with around 100 domain names feeding them.
