    We have been using SoftLayer's DNS and haven't had any issues for the past 3 months.

  3. SoftLayer's DNS is in normal

    I use my own DNS, but people do complain about SL DNS, like from time to time it's unreachable.

    There were 6 outages in the last 5 months according to a thread on their forums.

    I don't think you should judge a DNS server or service based on how many outages it had but rather how long the outages were.

    A service can have 200 outages in a year and if all of them are 1 minute it would still compare better to the same service that has 5 outages with 60 minutes each.
