Git Push DNS

There are now a lot of services that have “git push” options available… you can build websites with Azure and Github, books using ShareLaTeX and now, DNS using LuaDNS. I have one zone running at the moment (tiernanotoole.net) and you can see the DNS records on github here. I am tempted at moving other records over soon… but i am currently on Amazon Route53 and 1: its works, so dont break it, and 2, not sure how to bulk export records from Route53 to Bind or Lua format.

[update] 2 quick updates: 1) their free account, which is what i am using, allows 3 domains and 30 host records. they also charge less than Route53:

  • route 53 for 10 domains per year cost 50c per domain (first 25) per month, then query charges. total, about $60 + queries (@40c per million).
  • luadns cost $29 a year for 10 domains, 5 million (ish) querys a month and 500 host records…

I think i have nearly 30 domain on AWS… so, their $59 a year package, which include 30 domains, would probably save me money…

and 2) i forgot about one of those git push services… DeveloperMail is a service, for developers, for managing email servers. IMAP, SMTP, Git… all supported! just signed up… $2 a month per user. Lets see how this works…
