dns service provider.

So my current free dns provider is telling me it`s time to find a new provider. Cause he is giving up providing. So now I`m on a quest to find a new provider. Google gives me a lot of help, but I still not sure what to use. I signed up with freedns.afraid.org to check out what they can do for free. But I still need some more input.
Anyone know of any good providers?
Does not have to be free, but as close to free as possible is good. I have a server at home wich I can use for secondary dns providing, but I suspect my ISP dont accept that:)

Once I had the same problem and I came across http://ns2exchange.com haven't tried it tough. I just didn't want to deal with public DNS, so I use my hosting companys NS. (plus right now the people on there all seem to run homeservers).
I'm sure you could find somebody on here who runs an DNS or rootserver, just supply secondary your self.
but if its for a homeserver, what I almost assume from your question, think about dyndns or similar.

It's really not for a homeserver, but not for a commercial site either.
But somewhere in between.
Great feedback. Got lots to check now!

You can always run your own DNS server at home. I decided that when I got fed up with my ISP's crappy DNS servers and I just feel much more comfortable and secure running my own. There are a couple of articles at Debian Admin teaching how to do that. Creating one local DNS server with BIND is easy.

I am using http://gratisdns.dk/ and it works great too.
I do recommend them.

I only have my domain on their DNS servers.

Not on my home site though. It's at work that I have IPv6.

Could someone with some knowled write down how to use IPv6 propperly (an own net)? (Hmm, I shold read up on IPV6, shouldn'y I? Any links? Hmm, should prob. do some more research :))

I have a LinkSys NSLU2 running Debian 24/7 and a LinkSys WRT54GL running Linux 2.4 OpenWRT KAMIKAZE (7.09)
