I'm engaged in an off-and-on project to move my website to the cloud (while at the same time, keeping costs manageable, which is a bit of a trick). Part of of this involves moving my DNS zone editor to Cloudflare. Among the services Cloudflare provides is a way of distributing static resources worldwide, so you access the content from the source nearest you. This also allows it to block spambots and DOS attacks. In this post, Jim Groom describes an alternative to this service, provided by Edgeport - "a new enterprise-grade DNS, CDN, and Load Balancing service much in the vein of Cloudflare." I haven't tried it but of course now I'll take a look.
