    hn.org
    After NameSecure failed to update my nameservers, causing my site to go down, I found hn, and added the hn nameservers with my sites IP as the A record, and my site was back up in just a few hours. (maybe less, but I went to bed, disgusted with NameSecure's lack of action after 30 days)
    They do specialize in low TTL's which is great for people hosting their own sites.
    DANG DANG! DANG!!
    I know ***** ripped off everybody else, but they wouldn't do it to me.

    I have used dns2go for personal use. Both on linux and Win2k. Pretty simple to set up and use. http://www.dns2go.com should get you there.

    http://www.zoneedit.com provide DNS services however I don't believe they offer a program to automatically update the zones like dns2go.com.
