Administering a DNS server can be a painful chore, unless you're using Men & Mice's QuickDNS Pro. Version 3.0 adds many useful features that make this the most powerful tool available for DNS serving and administration on either a Mac or a PC.
You can now administer the server application remotely from any Mac, even via the Internet. In fact, you can remotely administer any number of QuickDNS Pro servers simultaneously. This release supports the new SRV and LOC record types, which let you identify a server's attributes and geographic location. It will allow you to sort resource records to keep them better organized.
QuickDNS Pro's load-balancing and dynamic-failover features let you easily set up redundant Web servers. And QuickDNS Pro is fast our tests show it to be faster than Windows-based DNS servers and on a par with Unix servers. The only nit to pick is that the import feature, which is intended to let you migrate DNS records from other platforms to the Mac, rejects some standardized DNS-record formats.
Safety Check: QuickDNS Pro 3.0's interface offers better syntax checking and safety features.
