    Post dnsstuff.com quality?

    I miss the original dnsstuff.com, now they added all this fancy crap to it. I think it's ridiculous. Right now I can't even connect to it, can anybody else connect to it?

    I think it's time we find another website :|

    It works, you just need to scroll down a little. It's not a big deal, after all, they're providing it for free.

    <soapbox> They've provided the community with a fantastic service... hopefully the community will step up and show them some support. </soapbox>

    Works fine for me.. Use it often and the membership cost is pretty low considering the usefulness of the site...

    They provide an excellent service for free, and the option to sign up is completely up to you.

    Considering the amount of traffic they get (they rank 310 on the web), and considering personal users and companies use them for troubleshooting, I think they have the right to charge for a membership.

    Anyway, what right do you have to complain? If you have never paid them a single penny, you can't by all means complain about the service...

    Plus, WHT charge for a more expensive membership which doesn't actually get you anything useful, and no one complains about that, and dnsstuff.com get far more hits than WHT...

    More info about dnsstuff.com's position on the web can be found here http://www.alexa.com/data/details/tr...l=dnsstuff.com

    dnsstuff.com was a lot better back in the day, it didn't have any fancy interface, they didn't come up in your face to try and get you to become a member either. It was plain and simple, something I'm sure a lot of people enjoyed.

    In all fairness, it's their website, they built it and paid for it for many years, so its really up to them what they do with it.

    It's one of my favorite websites, great free tools. And I agree..they're not forcing membership on people. The basic stuff is still there for free.
