Why not your own dns of the box? I use godaddy to point traffic to my
server and it does dns for my domains on it's own...i am using
virtualmin. I don't know which free dns service you are using now. I
don't know if opendns allows that kind of flexibility. dyndns might
work(unless that's who youa re using now). everydns is now owned by dyn..
