dns server

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth


My company has a website and we have approximately 20 emails. Currently our website is with godaddy, then this goes to a dns server owned by our IT consultant and this then directs our website to hostgator where our files are hosted.

We recently lost our website and emails for 3 days, we had conflicting reasons why from our IT guy but throughout all the time it was down we could not ping the dnserver address.

My first question is do we need to have a separate dnserver, would it not be just as efficient to use the godaddy dns service and direct it to hostgator?

In fact would it not be better to have the site hosted directly with godaddy as well – my thought process being that with only one place we have less the likelihood that one of the steps fails.

thanks for any advice
