I did not know that GoDaddy offered this, that’s quite cool, I’ve always wanted my own nameserver.
Sadly, my registrar cum host doesn’t offers such features 🙁 but it’s available with VPS 😉 anyhow thanks for sharing!
I don’t use goddady but I can set my DNS with one of my sites on VPS, but will my sites be unavailable if a downtime happens in the VPS?
