"Performant DNS, not just for large companies"

What do you like best?

Support for all types of DNS records and setups, including ALIAS records. Very responsive customer support.

What do you dislike?

Somewhat stingy free tier. I know they have to make money, but I would have liked to see 1M queries/mo in the developer plan, rather than just 500k. That's only one query every 3 seconds on average.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

NS1 has slightly sped up my website's initial load times, due to the fast DNS query and the ALIAS record support. Also, their DNS is published more quickly than my registrar's DNS.
