I work for BlueCat, a competitor to Infoblox. Our solution gives you BIND on
Linux, with root access to the servers when you need it, as well as a robust
management and monitoring solution. Our servers can be deployed in cloud and
That said, you don’t need a commercial product to do what you’ve described.
BIND on Linux will do everything you’ve described, if properly set up. You
could set up some simple scripting to give you secure DDNS so that you can
update the data from anywhere.
I hope that helps.
