After seeing that the speed of Digital Ocean DNS is better than CloudFlare, I wanted to use Digital Ocean DNS for my educational website.
You can also check it using this tool: https://www.dnsperf.com/dns-speed-benchmark
But when I signed up, they asked me to add $5 before we could use any service (DO DNS is free, though).
After switching my website to Digital Ocean’s DNS, I found it’s not as good as what they have for their own domain (digitalocean.com) Then again, I moved somewhere else.
Now I want to know why this happened.
Why is your own domain’s DNS very quick but not for others?
Secondly, can I get a refund of my $5 back?
