DNS management

MKT Manu Krishnan T V Public Seen by 20

The DNS for poddery is still managed with Linode, a US based company. Right now, we have no other service for poddery running in Linode.

We have earlier discussed about the DNS migration to RAGE4, but that wasn't properly followed up.

Right now, Knightswarm has activated a free RAGE4 DNS account for us and I support migrating the DNS there. More about RAGE4 can be found at

Go ahead. @joeb I think we are ready to migrate the domain.

For setting that up, I need to have access to the domain control panel. And if possible, to the Linode panel too, to check the existing DNS records.

I can either transfer the domain to you or point the domain's name servers to RAGE4.

For transferring the domain I would need to know what e-mail address to send the transfer code to. For pointing the name servers to RAGE4, I would need to know what RAGE4's name servers are (minimum number of name servers that I need are 2).

@joeb Let the domain be with you. I'll provide the Nameservers. But before updating them, we need all the DNS records in place. @anisha Can you help me with the present DNS records in linode?


Manu Krishnan T V Wed 26 Feb 2014 6:54PM has been using rage4 DNS service provided by KnightSwarm and it seems pretty good. Shall we also consider moving the DNS? Its still with Linode.

Also, what about renewing the domain for a few more years and moving it out of GoDaddy? Seeing a domain expiry date in WHOIS, which is some time ahead is a peace of mind :-)

@manukrishnantv go ahead for both.


Manu Krishnan T V Sun 23 Mar 2014 4:51PM

I'll add the DNS records under rage4 and ask Joe to change the nameservers. So, there won't be any downtime.

@manukrishnantv What's the status now?


Manu Krishnan T V Sat 9 Aug 2014 5:00PM

@balasankarchelamat No updates yet. Still using Linode. We might also need to move the domain from godaddy.
