Looking for just a dnssec dns provider, not a registrar

Hi I have domains with joker who’s dns service does not support dnssec, They do support some dnssec. Can anybody recommend a provider – an example of yes they dnssec but is gandi (a reg) seem to sell everything except dns on a quick examination of there website.

I dont trust godaddy. I would transfer dns to this provider and retain joker as our domain registrar. I have moved registrars but I would rather not just to do dnssec.

I could self host but dont have worldwide servers. Its low traffic and money would be paid to this provider.

Can anyhow point me to companies that might do this?

Wrong MX record returned from only one DNS server.

Our MX records comes back completely wrong (and an address we don’t recognize) from From what I can find online it’s the servers run by eNom.

We discovered this when we found that several external senders were unable to reach us via email. They get no NDR; we simply never receive their email. Through trouble-shooting we eventually noticed that all of their domains were hosted through various resellers, each of which was selling domains from eNom.

eNom can’t/won’t help us since we aren’t their customer and never have been.

We have moved registrars now and again over the years, and migrated to Office 365 for hosted Exchange a couple of years ago, too. It seems that our DNS change didn’t propagate to eNom’s DNS.

Is there any way to force their server to update or am I stuck just trying to call them again and again in hopes of finding someone who can help me?

Question Re: Zone Delegation + A Record (Windows Server)

Is it possible (or even proper) to host an A record while simultaneously delegating out that subdomain/zone to a 3rd party? Would the A Record for that have to be configured at the 3rd party?

Use case:

Host a service endpoint at while operating dyndns on zone for N nodes?

Example architecture:

  • <= A Record to a valid IP (Reported by NS1)
  • <= Zone record delegated to NS2/NS3
  • <= A Record to a valid IP (repored by NS2/NS3)
  • <= A Record to a valid IP (repored by NS2/NS3)

This would be configured on Windows Server DNS. I know that I can create it without error, but is it valid? Bad Practice? etc.

[help] My domain is not propagated to mobile networks


I’ve been using for some time now. Recently I’ve noticed that my domain is not propagated correctly to mobile networks. It’s not a new domain, it’s been up for with for at least couple of months (maybe even a year).

When I try to visit my website through any cable network (local ISPs) there’s no problem. I’ve also used VPN, proxies and to check. When I try to access it through my mobile (and, not only mine) I get a ‘name not resolved’ error.

Sorry if I’m asking in the wrong sub, but apparently I’ve run out of ideas how to even google it 🙁

DNS on a LAN, best practices?

What would be today’s best practices for setting up dns on a LAN? It seems we finally all agree .local is a bad idea. Same as .lan or other not (yet) public tdl’s. So a registered domain name sould be it. Can we use te root of this domain for our LAN or should we use a subdomain?

Is using rfc 1918 addresses on a public DNS server an bad idea? Or do we keep using split-DNS? How would split DNS work with ipv6?

Looking forward to your ideas
