This thread is a split from http://forums.mddhos...ur-dns-is-fine/
 

Sure, there are dedicated DNS providers out there. For many of our customers, that is probbably overkill, but it is an option.
 
We also provide DNS servers with our service. The control panel handles configuring most things, and has tools for you to set custom records. All you have to do is set our nameservers with your domain registrar, and of course, set any custom DNS records in our control panel.

 
That's how I would have liked it set up in the first place. The only issue with this particular domain is that NS is also hosting my client's email and the only way the email system would work was to set up the DNS with A Records on their end.

Incorrect, you can set up A-Records on our DNS cluster just the same.

Hey Michael,

 

Thanks for the post split off, I wanted to ask more about this but didn't want to fill up the original thread.

 

So ok, my knowledge of DNS and all that is sparse at best, please excuse my noobish questions. What exactly happens with the Advanced DNS zone editor? Would using it effect emails that are set up and hosted over at Network Solutions?

At Network Solutions - you can create A-Records.  You can do the same thing with us - it's as simple as that.  If you can configure the Network Solutions DNS to do what you need, you can do it with our DNS too.
