New DreamHost Default DNS


#1

Have you guys changed your default DNS ONCE AGAIN?

Last time I checked, they were:
ns.newdream.net 66.33.206.6
ns2.newdream.net 66.33.216.16
ns3.newdream.net 64.70.42.11

But they have since become:
ns1.dreamhost.com 66.33.206.206
ns2.dreamhost.com 209.17.93.93
ns3.dreamhost.com 66.33.216.216

I remember it was something else a while ago. The reason that I ask is that I am registering domain names a lot, and that’s what confuses me as I seem to be always filling in the wrong stuff.

Does it really matter since all my domains look okay, at least for now.

Both will work, but ns(1,2,3).dreamhost.com will be the defaults for new zones (last I checked, the actual registration was still using the old values, which will be fixed soon.

It’s not ideal to have the authoritative servers report values that don’t match the delegation, but it’s not a huge deal - your domains will all still work. At the moment, old zones should still be giving out ns.newdream.net / ns(2,3).newdream.net; at some point we’ll probably do a mass change for domains registered through us.
