Fully redundant, fault-tolerant, reliable name servers
Many domain owners run their own DNS, on the server their DNS points to. If that server goes down, it then becomes very time consuming to change your DNS to point anywhere else. So you should always run your DNS on a different server than the one to which it points to. The Zonomi name servers are spread around the globe (London, Dallas, New York and Auckland). Making it tolerant to network or power failures in any one particular data center.
Used by thousands of users on over 30 thousand domains.
Our name servers are powered by PowerDNS, a very popular and powerful DNS product. Rather than 'flat files', it can use a database back end. Making it very efficient, capable of handling a huge number of domains and responding instantly to DNS lookup queries. We use database replication to propagate DNS record changes to all our name servers instantly.
Low TTLs, for when your details change often
Time-to-live (TTL) settings control how long a client will cache your DNS records. Lower TTL values will enable you to change your IP addresses more quickly. This is essential if you are using techniques like DNS failover. Or if you are using a dynamic IP (e.g. a IP dynamically assigned to you by your ISP) to host public service (like a website)with a domain name.
Wildcard domain names
You can add in 'wildcard' records. Like *.example.com so that any sub-domain in your domain zone can have an IP address.

Round robin DNS?
No problem. We support that. You can add multiple IP addresses for any domain name.
No need to transfer your domain name registrar

Integrates with Pingability's DNS fail over
Pingability's server monitoring service integrates with Zonomi so if a server fails it can automatically change your DNS to point to a different server.
Vanity name servers
Zonomi lets you use custom (or vanity) name servers. e.g. so you can use ns1.yourdomain.com instead of, say, ns1.zonomi.com.
