추가내용: 8월 27일부터 적용한다고 하니, 여러 개의 도메인을 가지신 분은 빨리 조치를 취하시기 바랍니다.

도메인을 등록하면 등록기관에서 DNS 서비스를 무료로 제공하기도 하지만, 실제로 좀 안다는(!) 사용자는 무료 DNS 서비스를 이용하는 경우가 종종 있습니다.

아마 국내에서는 DNSEVER.COM이 가장 널리 사용되고 있을 것으로 예상되지만, 외국에도 나름대로 쓸만한 무료 DNS가 몇 개 있습니다.

이중 ZoneEdit 라는 무료 DNS 서비스에서 제공하는 서비스를 변경하는 소식을 전해 드립니다.

원래 ZoneEdit에서는 사용자ID 별로 최대 5개까지 도메인을 무료로 관리할 수 있었으며, 그외에는 년간 약 10$의 비용을 내는 유료 서비스를 제공하고 있었습니다.

하지만, 다음달 정도로 예상되는 새로운 서비스에서는 관리 인터페이스의 향상과 더불어 무료로 제공되던 도메인 수가 5개에서 2개로 줄고, 유료 서비스의 경우에는 년간 단위가 아니라 월 1달러 정도로 변경됩니다.

감사합니다.

We’re making some long-overdue improvements to ZoneEdit this fall. Our goal is to improve the interface and add functionality while maintaining the simplicity and ease-of-use that has made ZoneEdit popular.
One of the primary changes affecting free users is that the number of free zones allowed will be reduced from 5 to 2. However, all users that have ever purchased a credit will maintain their 5 free zones, so the easy solution if you've valued your ZoneEdit service is to purchase at least 1 credit ($10.95 per credit) in the account management area before the transition to keep all 5 free zones.
Please Note:
Free users that don't purchase a credit prior to migration won't have their free zones beyond the first two immediately deleted, but will instead have those zones marked as requiring payment whenever their next renewal date comes up. We don't have a finalized date for these changes yet, but expect the new site to launch towards the end of August or September.
Here뭩 what to expect in coming months:
A complete website and interface update

  • The website and account management interface will be modernized
  • Site speed will be much faster
  • Layout and functionality will be simplified and more intuitive
  • Broken processes will be repaired
Credit and Pricing Updates
  • Instead of credits being utilized on an annual basis, the new system will be monthly
  • Instead of $10.95 for a credit that gives one year of service, a credit will be $1 and give one month of service
  • Essentially, what is now 1 credit will be broken into 12 credits over the course of the year
  • Bulk pricing for credit purchases will be available similar to the current system
  • Current customers with unused credits remaining in their account will have their credits multiplied by 12 during migration to maintain the same relative account balance
  • The new interface will include credit usage estimates to make purchasing the correct amount simple
Free Service Changes
  • All accounts that have ever purchased a credit will be grandfathered into the new system and maintain their 5 free zones
  • New accounts will only receive 2 free zones instead of 5
  • Current accounts that are free and have never purchased a credit will be downgraded from 5 to 2 free zones
    • NOTE: If you have only used free services and want to maintain your 5 free zones in the new system there's a simple solution: buy at least one credit before the migration and you'll keep all 5 free zones
New Features
  • Enhanced IPv6 Support
  • Over 10 new or enhanced record types including SRV, KEY, LOC, SPF, TXT, and more
  • Simplified account creation and management
  • A logout button!
A User Forum
  • The forum will launch shortly after the website relaunch
  • Customers will have the opportunity to discuss DNS, ask support-related questions, and interact with other ZoneEdit users
Terms of Service Update Feel free to tell your tech-oriented friends about ZoneEdit and share these exciting changes with them. A decade without major updates is a lifetime in the online world, and we뭨e not taking these changes lightly; we want to make sure we get them right. These updates are just the beginning of what will be an ongoing process of improvement and addition of new features!

Sincerely,
The ZoneEdit Team

끝.

      저도 ZoneEdit 사용하고있는데 업그레이드 된다고 하길래 유료화 되는건가 했는데 아니군요. 다행입니다.

      검색해 보시면,

      외국 무료 DNS가 두세개 더 있습니다.

      이제 그리로 타고 넘어가야 할 거 같네요.

      댓글 감사합니다. ^^;
