Need High Availability DNS Name Server Solution when using PepLink

Posted on 2011-10-15
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
We have our two primary DNS servers on our PepLink 210 WAN Load balancer/Router. We would like to find a way to make those two DNS name servers the ones that are connected first and if those go down, then and only then we would like DNS lookups to come to a third/forth Name server. This is in case the power goes down in our building for an extended amount of time.
We have External Websites and virtual servers that we would not want to lose the ability to have folks reach in the event of a disaster in our building.

Is there a way to do that with ZoneEdit or Network Solutions or some other DNS Server provider as a backup?

If so, is there a way to do a xone transfer into the new DNS name servers servers we don't have to start from scratch....?
Please advise....

    Check out You may get spoiled by their speed and start using them as your primary nameservers ;) I also recommend their backup mx if you dot have that setup already.

    Use global loadbalancers, they are builtin zone server for global load balancing of websites.

    We ended up using BUDDYNS.Com because they worked the best with a PEPLINK.
