worse, it's illegal.

how is this illegal? if you are residing your domain on a hosting service, this makes sense to me. Granted its bad form and should have an A record to the host for the main domain record, but if i had control over "otherdomain.com" and not "example.com" and had to change the IP address, "example.com" would be dead until i was able to reach the owner of that domain and have them change their DNS info.

You aren't supposed to use CNAMES for anything found in other RR's; in particular, you should always use an A record with the hostnames used for nameservers (ie, have an NS record), because you are supposed to be using the canonical name rather than an alias.



You might also find a discussion of webserver redirects and the like interesting:



PS: It's odd where google pulls up references to fairly canonical docs, sometimes. I'm not sure I even recognize "ua", and I suspect I deal with two-letter ISO 3166 country names more than most folks do. Maybe Ukraine? :-)
