You can now specify a different ip address for:
 mydomain.com
 www.mydomain.com
Before both had to have the same ip address.

Also, we added support for CNAME records.

I appreciate the CNAME support, but what about offering full DNS access
to advanced users? What if I want to modify the TTL values?
Or create a SRV record?
What if I want to specify a distinct MX record for a subdomain?
What if I want to treat dynadot nameservers as public secondaries, and
maintain dns through my own private master?
Right now I feel like I'm using mitts, which limits my enthusiasm for dynadot.

You make some very good suggestions. I have added them to our feature request list.

It has been some time since the first discussion here. I'm also interested in SRV records support, would you please let me know when do you plan to add this feature?

Agreed with the above.
It's a step in the right direction but DNS management can still be improved. Your call Dynabest o:)

Related to this, could you please explain why there are (what I see as) arbitrary limits on the number of DNS records one can have with the Dynadot DNS?

The number of A and CNAME records is sufficient, but why only 3 MX records?  Why not just say 25 A, CNAME or MX records?

UPDATE: Especially as you just recently combined the A and CNAME records...

Hi Dynadot,

Please give us feedback whether you are going to implement the DNS SRV records feature soon, or we should look for this option at 3rd parties.

We have the same questions.  Why only 3 MX records?  Why is the DNS TTL not modifiable?  Why is the original post from this topic over 4 YEARS ago and nothing has been done to fix the situation?

We believe that for most customers, 3 MX records and the 4 hour DNS TTL is sufficient. Also, there are a number of free DNS service providers you can use. That said, for 2011 we are looking to upgrade our hardware to better accommodate advanced users.

Just wanted to say I was coming here to ask for this as well.

For example I'm moving my name servers to a new server with a new IPs and it would be (err would have been) extremely helpful to use dynadot as a transitional service while I transfer the private nameservers to the new IPs.

Most every other registrar I have used offers this, but I was surprised it is not here!
