googlekey        IN      CNAME   google.com.

This will point most things to Google, except for the Web which will go into Eastnet. If the site is to be a Weblog then it needs an alias in /etc/apache2/sites-available/phatic.org and a site and alias in Wordpress. Then it should all work relatively well.

Sometimes, I remember to ask Scramworks for secondary DNS. The other secondary DNS's are generally hicom.org and ns0.uknet.net
