Neustar UltraDNS

I think it is best when you might need a lot of detail. I wouldn't suggest this for sharing with an end user.

NS1

NS1 is great for high performance or geographically load balanced DNS needs for an enterprise product. The variety of different services and integrations make the product highly configurable and the great monitoring systems, including integrations with PagerDuty, etc., allow for an operation to easily watch for issues. NS1 is overkill for flat, easy to define, and static DNS solutions that won't use all of its advanced features.

On a rare occasion that we call for support, more like a HOW-TO type of thing, it is a live person, prompt, courteous and knowledgeable.

We read reviews and had a demo. That suited us well.

NS1

The primary comparison was between NS1 and Route 53. The more advanced features and better performance of NS1 made the choice clear. Also, moving some services to a different vendor prevents vendor lock-in. Route 53 has great features and is easy to configure as well as a Terraform provider support for infrastructure as code practices, but the performance of NS1 was much better.
