The interface is easy to use. I manage multiple DNS zones and getting into the zone for editing is easy. There are some situations where you have to toggle between the expert editor and the standard editor. Depending on what you are doing, it can be confusing which editor to use, but it is always available there.

The web portal makes the process very easy to make changes and/or add new entries when needed.

I give Oracle Dyn Managed DNS a 10 because the API is easy to use and there are libraries available which increase usability dramatically. The UI is functional (after some getting used to) but as a Software Engineer I drive my automation through the API.

The interface can be simple for those that are new to managing DNS, or you can switch to the advanced interface. You have the ability to create just about any record you need to from either, though some are better created in basic and others in advanced. Ability to create SRV records using a simple wizard is also available.

As this is the DNS service I have used for most of my career, I can not really compare it to other options. I will however say that the user interface could be improved. The ease of locating a specific node quickly and making small changes could be better. I don't want to have to click through three or four menus to locate a node because the ISP changed their IP address. I'd like to be able to enter a portion of the node id into the search on the home page and get directly to that node.

Because of the UI experience. For me, it's one of the best interfaces to navigate (except for the left side domain tree which is a little bit slow).
