    registrar with free dns host?

    I saw netfirms offers free dns host if I bought domain with them. What do you think of that service? currently I use freedns.afraid.org as my dns host with dreamhost as the registrar of my domain.

    I'm satisfied with dreamhost service, especially free whois privacy, but does not offer dns host since I don't host my domains with them.

    With netfirms, they also offer free whois privacy. But in DNS management, can I do things like I did on afraid? I looked around on their website it appears it can set A, CNAME and MX records. But does not state the ability to set TXT record. Can anyone confirm this?

    I know I can always set the name servers back to afraid.org, but I think its tidier to have that in one place.

    The 1.99 is with purchase of non-domain product

    If you get your domain from a some GoDaddy resellers it can be less. Get free hosting and email too.

    You have to consider the bottomline

    Total Cost = registration + privacy

    And don't forget GoDaddy offers free hosting and email with registration

    godaddy is my first registrar of my domain, I transfered my domain to dreamhost because godaddy charges $9.90 for privacy at that time, and also does not have free dns host. Now I guess they offer privacy for $1.95 and free dns host? I don't need free webhost and email, as for webhost I already rent an VPS for that. I prefers google apps for email needs, as I don't need more than 200 users atm.

    Thank you for the suggestions guys, now time to look at godaddy's offers

    many people don't know that godaddy.com has free offsite dns management,
    just create a free account with them and look for "offsite dns management" in My Account Tab.

    and yes with this service u can set all records= A, CNAME, NAMESERVER,SRV,SPF,TXT AND unlimited subdomains
