Dear all mightiest Lord Elrond, what service do you use for your DNS. I've just noted that there are some updates in the forms about how sometimes the DNS is affecting some things and would like to mention http://freedns.afraid.org has treated me well beyond my needs. One of the best features that I have noticed with it is if an IP address updates, it updates across the web in real time to the best of my knowledge.

Not sure about my DNS things. I have the domain setup properly I hope, and the webserver IP is on a fixed IP-number. The same goes for the main radio server, but there's not webserver at that one, just a plain Icecast server

DNS, registrar and registrant info is publicly available in WHOIS. You can look up WHOIS information on many different sites. Here's a link to a lookup on ICANN's site: https://whois.icann.org/en/lookup?name=radiorivendell.com

Note:

Name Server: NS1-WOPSA.CYGRIDS.NETName Server: NS2-WOPSA.CYGRIDS.NET

Cygrids.net points to some Swedish hosting company, so I assume his hosting provider provides DNS for radiorivendell.com as well. Keep in mind that the individual playback servers (on the Listen page) have their own domain names outside radiorivendell.com's zone, so their DNS is handled by other parties. (I, for instance, run the ice2.varden.info server, and use CloudFlare for DNS.)

I run a relay server in Norway, providing streams for all three bandwidth settings!

Yes, the webserver (www.radiorivendell.com) resides in Sweden (not sure where actually ) but our relays are all over the place. radiorivendell.com is handled by the hosting company. So things usually work out pretty well.
