Hash: SHA1

I would much rather run my own DNS server and have that level of
control for managing my records.

PS.  Thanks to the list, I am now running PGP with no trouble.  :-)

Why would you expect your registrar to provide DNS? It's a nice extra

wouldn't find it that odd to have someone other than the domain
registrar doing dns for you.
