Wildly off-topic, but that's registrar driven, not registry driven.
I have a range of domains (.com, .net, .org and others) all accessed
from a single login through a single registrar. You need to use a
As a bit of obPostgresql, though... While the registry for .org is
run on Postgresql, the actual DNS is run on Oracle. That choice was
driven by the availability of multi-master replication.
Like many of the cases where the problem looks like it needs
multi-master replication, though, it doesn't really need it. A single
master at any one time, but with the ability to dub any of the slaves
a new master at any time would be adequate. If that were available for
Postgresql I'd choose it over Oracle were I doing a big distributed
database backed system again.
