GoDaddy Lost My DNS Settings: What to do?

My MX records point to Google Apps and my mail was working perfectly for 2 years or more. Then the other day it stopped working. I managed to figure out that it was a DNS problem and reset my MX records, but it's a bit spooky that this happened. The MX records were deleted and replaced by the defaults.

"The ""Total DNS Control"" service has an option to actually import or export your entire zone into a plain text file. Actually, this is something you should do every time you make a change in your zone. As well, if you have multiple changes to do, or changes that will be the same across multiple zones, this is perhaps the easiest way to do it, if you're familiar with such text files.

I have a backup of all my zone files, so if any of them goes bezerk, I can restore it in a matter of minutes, given the TTL settings for both the zone and individual entries, of course."

"Well, assuming you have a strong password and your email account is secure, it's unlikely that your account was hacked. I'd still call GoDaddy and discuss it with them.

Personally, I always thought the GDCP UI was terrible. I use the freemium ZoneEdit service, which is gratis if you only have one zone. You can just delegate your DNS to ZE from the GDCP, and you don't have to go back to GD ever."
