From Reverse Lookups, to Host Information, from Start of Authority (SOA) records, to Well Known Services records, you won't find a more complete DNS component available on the market today.
Fail Over DNS Servers
aspNetDns has the capability to fail over to responding DNS servers, to responding DNS servers. By default aspNetDns checks your system for your primary DNS server. As a benefit, you can specify specific DNS Servers in the form of a comma-delimited string. aspNetDns will attempt to connect to each one, until a successful connection is made, and then use the first responsive DNS Server for the remainder of the aspNetDns session.
