      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.


Host your own DNS or use a DNS specialist company?

That depends on what you are trying to do and what you are trying to achieve. 

Your DNS:
Complete control over your DNS, you can make your changes, have multiple failover setups and won't cost you additional to set up a private DNS

Using Premium DNS:
Depends on which one you are choosing but can take of things like DDoS protection, Anycast DNS, CDN, etc. all integrated, so you go through less hassle. 

It depends on what you are trying to achieve and based on that you can make a decision.

For me it's definitely better to use a third-party DNS that's 100% independent from your host. This way you get flexibility during downtimes and site migrations.

I recommend if you know how to do your own or you can get someone to set it up for you then you should do that

if not then you can try CloudFare
