If you'd like a local alternative which is quite cheap, and very
responsive, I recommend Intrex.net. I don't know for sure that
they're still running the same setup, but at least at some point in
the past I personally built the hardware and software setup they use
to run their BIND DNS servers, and still trust them for some domains I
manage. :) Their support is very responsive, I recently had to
update some records in short order for a domain which had gone dark
due to a myriad of conspiring errors (a line card outage in the middle
of a migration that took the business people weeks to do what should
have taken hours), and they were both very fast and competent
(uncovering a stupid goof I'd made with a serial and helpfully
correcting for it and pointing it out to me).
All in all, for secondary DNS services when it really matters, I'm
very happy to be their customer.
