Can't sign up to account + suggestions for public DNS Zone alternatives?

Hi guys.

This is probably the daftest question I've had to ask on here; it has me going round in circles. I'm a long time user of for my and my client's public DNS zones / name servers on the Internet. I now want to segregate my client's zones in to their own accounts (to save charging them piddly sums each month, and instead letting them pay direct), but I literally cannot find a way to create a new account at

Firstly, for my sanity, can anyone else out there work out how to create a account from their front end web page? All I find is 'learn more' and pricing infomation, leading round and round in circles. Am I being dense? Am I going insane? I'm hoping I've just missed something, but have spent a long time looking. have recently been terrible at ever replying to support email requests, and it is perhaps time to find an alternative provider. DynDNS are too expensive for the type of services I need (particularly backup MX records, which were done on a per domain basis when I last used them). Does anyone have any first hand suggestions they have used, who are inexpensive, and have reasonable reliability and support?

Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers :)

Seems this was a problem back in January
Looks like they are not taking new business?

Can find no way to create a new account
(So I think your sanity is intact :-)

I think I may have answered my own question on a DNS Zone / Backup MX Record provider - has anyone used these guys?  

As for, if someone can just try and create an account on there and tell me how it is done, the points are yours! I would love to know for my own sanity, even if I leave them....

Cheers :)

Thank you for the confirmation, and that extra info re January. There is clearly something dodgy going on there. I'm glad my sanity is intact, at least on this matter! :-)

I will award points now. Have you had any positive dealings with other DNS zone providers?

Many thanks :-)

Very limited exposure sorry
Only dyndns as already mentioned
Have posted a message on zoneedit support
Will post answer if I get one :-)
Come to think of it
I Have used these guys
Reliable and on the one occasion I needed support they were great
Not sure on the price plans
They charge using "zones" which takes a bit of getting your head around
Have used their netmon service also good

Thanks for that - and will be very interested to hear if you hear back from Zoneedit :)

So far I'm getting on very well with DNS Made Easy. Seems a really good service, well priced, and their support is very responsive. I think I'm probably going to make the jump to them in the coming weeks.

Thank you again for help :)
