CloudFloorDNS Enterprise DNS Review

I get notification emails when changes are made

What is our primary use case?

We have dozens of domains worldwide, over many registrars. I needed to consolidate settings and have high performance everywhere.

How has it helped my organization?

Great performance, easy configuration. I can create limited access accounts for my web developers.

What is most valuable?

  • Outstanding support
  • The ability to restore from changes
  • GeoDNS is so important to an international presence
  • Speed: Speed is everything in e-commerce. 
  • I get notification emails when changes are made.

What needs improvement?

  • I'd say that it would be nice if changes were possible on more than one record at a time, perhaps the changed records could change color or be rendered in boldface or just show a "not saved" per record. 
  • The email for each line change is excessive, perhaps if the change emails consolidated all changes per domain in a given hour. 
  • The stats are nice but deep. I'd like to be able to consolidate the 'www' with the "naked" domain stats.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Seems to be highly stable. I've only used it for a year, so time will tell.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Seems to be highly scalable. Haven't hit any limits yet.

How are customer service and technical support?

They were able to resolve a baffling problem where one foreign registrar just plainly refused to allow me to use Cloudfloor services.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

No, just the standard registrar supplied solution, that and Zoneedit which I used because it was free.

How was the initial setup?

Easy if you give it your full attention.

What about the implementation team?

Just did it myself. I moved the domains over, a few at a time.

What was our ROI?

Impossible to quantify, sorry.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Just Zoneedit, but I needed a more personalized support.

What other advice do I have?

Take your time to learn how this is different from anything you've used before.
