Would really appreciate some help.
After some downtime earlier this year I’d like to host my DNS externally (eg. UltraDNS) to point to my hosting (a dedicated box) at Dreamhost - so if the DH network goes down for an extended period (and, crucially, the Panel is unavailable), I can simply switch my external DNS to point to another host and my site is back up again.
So… this would be pretty simple if the “Unique IP” Add-on was permanent, but it changes
Have read online about delegating authority at external DNS hosts for subdomains, but am not clear if it works for primary domains (and will also introduce much more latency…?).
Has anyone else done this?
(Is the answer that I need to move hosting away from Dreamhost? Hope not! The support is great - happy customer for 10+ years).
Thanks in advance for any tips.
PS. First time I tried to post this question I got a “Bad Gateway” server error…?
