I have been a user of Simple DNS for several years, and many
individuals on this forum have spoken highly of the product.
I've been using Version 4.1 for a while, and finally decided to
upgrade to version 5.
What a disaster ... the conversion went smoothly, all the records, all
of the configuration setting looked correct, but DNS lookup simply did
not work. Tried over 24 hours to get a hold of SimpleDNS support via
the support telephone number on their website and via email.
After 9 hours, got a single line email back from them asking if I had
a switch enabled, which I did.
About 3 hours later, with no improvement, I reinstalled Version 4.1
and everything went back to normal.
As requested SimpleDNS asked me to forward my configuration file ...
it took them almost 72 business hours to answer that they couldn't
find anything wrong ... they asked me if I could try some other
things ... I told them I wouldn't do this without a telephone call,
since I couldn't afford to take our DNS down for days awaiting email
support. Asked if this could be arranged. After 48 hours no
I have emailed them asking for a refund of my upgrade fees. With
such a critical program such as DNS, there has to be a prompt support
mechanism. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that SimpleDNS can
support their product properly IMHO.
I guess I'm stuck on Version 4.1 for now.
