So long GoDaddy and thanks for all the SOPA
December 23, 2011
Yesterday, news came out that GoDaddy supports the “Stop Online Piracy Act” aka SOPA aka The-Stupidest-god-damn-way-to-destroy-the-internet-congress-has-ever-come-up-with. SOPA is bad; it’ll break the internet; it’ll destroy free speech; it’ll kill due process… and generally give the megacorps the authority to do whatever the hell they want to whomever the hell they want. So, SOPA is bad and likewise supporting SOPA is bad. GoDaddy is 100% behind SOPA so I’m 100% out of there.

By Dsv (Own work) Public domain, via Wikimedia CommonsFor the last few years, my DNS server of choice (when I run my own) is PowerDNS. It is very simple to use, and the ability to run multiple “backends” makes it wonderfully configurable. My choice setup is PowerDNS running the MySQL backend. Of course the question is “How do I manage the MySQL backend?” and that is where PDNSOps comes in.
