    I like that they know how to handle Heroku app domains. The one-click to add feature is nice, super simple and easy to use. My only complaint is that I have to use a different provider for our actual domain registration. Would be nice to just have DNSimple handle all of that.

    Since most of zerotoherojs.com infrastructure is on AWS, Route53 is the obvious DNS of choice.

    I’m also considering CloudFlare, but haven’t decided the pros and cons of migrating yet.
