Perhaps I am making a wild and sweeping assumption here, but I think
that Chris is talking about the DNS servers which are controlled by
software the team I worked on at Rackspace was responsible for, and
look like ns.rackspace.com. ;)
Yep, so you're responsible for that crappy ui?
Dotster's wins for ease of use so far...
So, I'm actually curious if they have implemented a feature which was
not high priority when I worked there, and that is the ability to
configure their nameservers as slaves.
Don't think so, it's just that I can "host dns" there for stuff that
isn't hosted on their servers.
I'd hope their nameservers are also pretty robust?
Tom - do you know if Rackspace's nameservers are capable of serving up
a slave copy of a zone which is managed at ZoneEdit.com?
When I wrote that email, I was actually proposing hosting the masters
there. I don't mind being "DNS boy" for zope.org and I'd hope
rackspace's nameservers would scale to the challenge...
We'd like to
de-centralize the zope.org zone so that no one individual or
organization such as Zope Corp are responsible for / in control of it.
If I ever did stop doing Zope stuff (hahahaha) then I'd happilly hand
the records on to someone else.
If I dropped dead (or got taken out by that hitman Jens keeps on
promising), the DNS could similarly be moved elsewhere...
I presume one of our volunteers is a Rackspace customer, and is thus
offering to host our domain as part of their account.
That'd be me ;-)
