Re: [PLUG] verizon dsl static external address

I've had very good service from  zoneeddit for DNS hosting.  
They give you the first two zones for free.   They also have
dynamicIP service ( though I avoid that if possible ),  and
support for  TXT records ( for your mailserver SPF records )

In my case I host zone records for many systems outside my
office, so I need something very reliable and not sensitive
to my ISP or server being down for maintenance, etc.
