I have been with DNS Exit for 14 years and they have been always great to help me resolve problems. We use their DNS, relay service and email hosting. The services are very reliable and we never got any problems. If you are look for DNS, or dynamic DNS, they are definitely the company to go.

DNS Exit Introduction

DNS Exit is a US-based hosting company that specializes in DNS management. Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, they have been in business since 2001 and offer a variety of DNS services, domain registrations, web hosting, and email hosting and management.

Services and Specializations

DNS Exit specializes in DNS management. They provide free services to route your domain to a new IP address, have your email route through a different server, configure name alias, or more. Their DNS management features are free to use, regardless of whether or not you register your domain with them. They also provide Dynamic DNS services for accessing your home computer remotely or hosting a website or email server from your home.

In addition to their free DNS services, DNS Exit also provides DNS Failover and Systems Monitoring, which checks your site every few minutes to ensure the primary server address is responding. If it doesn’t, they can automatically switch your domain to a secondary IP address, so access will continue even when your primary server is down. They offer a variety of annual packages, based on the quantity of sites being monitored.

DNS Exit offers three levels of shared web hosting. All plans feature unlimited email addresses, email forwarding, webmail, and one-click installations for the most popular content management applications. Plans vary based on the number of domains you can host, disk space, bandwidth allotment, email storage space, and the number MySQL databases they can support.

DNS Exit also provides a variety of email hosting packages, all of which include unlimited mailboxes and mail forwarding. Plans vary based on the amount of storage space required for your domain. In addition to standard email hosting, they also offer mail backup services, which include unlimited storage for a flat price per domain, mail forwarding, mail redirection, and mail relay services.

Support and Customer Service

Support is available via phone, email, online form, and live chat. Support requests made via email or their online form are responded to within 24 hours.

Uptime Guarantee

Since their launch in 2001, DNS Exit has maintained an impressive 100% uptime for their DNS services.

Conclusion

If DNS management is a concern, the free tools offered by DNS Exit are easy to use and can be managed from the convenience of their desktop application, and if you host a website from your home, their Dynamic DNS service can save you the trouble of getting a static IP. For companies with sites that can’t risk server outage, their failover and monitoring services will make a valuable addition to your support strategy.

Their web hosting selection is fairly limited, and their prices are higher than would be expected for shared plans, particularly if you’re interested in hosting more than one domain; however, if you want to take advantage of all their DNS tools, it may be worth the extra cost.
