Apologies if this the wrong forum.

 

 

 

My DNS registrar does not allow setting IPv6 glue records. They have been "working on it" for 2 years now.

 

 

 

Is there any way I can bypass my registrar to get these records added? I am reluctant to switch registrars because of the amount of work involved so am looking for a backdoor method.

 

 

 

Hope someone can help

So given you want to keep your registrar, you should be be able to assign new name servers and keep the domain at your registrar.

 

Don't know the service, but EasyDNS looks like it might be a service to consider for the DNS name servers.

The answer here is really no.

 

Hop across to Metaname and enjoy your IPv6 Glue, your DNSSEC and other fun features.

Its not hosting the domains that is the problem, its getting the glue record updated at the root servers which can only be done via a registrar.

 

Metaname, as suggested by Michael Murphy, look pretty good so maybe thats what I'll have to do.

Geekzone also use Metaname, I use them and so do many other people around here - excellent control panel, good pricing so why not :) Let us know how you get on.
